NASCAR driver Kyle Larson remains hospitalized and will miss Sunday’s NASCAR Sprint Cup Series STP 500 at Martinsville Speedway. The 2014 Sprint Cup rookie of the year was taken to  Martinsville Memorial Hospital Saturday after he fainted at Chevy Stage in the fan area. Doctors checked out Larson and said he seemed fine but recommend he see a neurologist for further evaluation. Since there was no neurologist at the Martinsville hospital, Larson was transported back to Charlotte N.C. Saturday night and seen at the Carolinas Medical Center.

“Although all tests came back negative and Larson feels completely fine, the doctors felt he should be held for more testing today,” the team said in an emailed statement. “Subsequently, Larson will be unable to race today in the STP 500 in Martinsville. Regan Smith has agreed to fill-in for Larson today in the No. 42 Target Chevrolet SS.”

The 22 year old first went to the infield care center. MORE>>>
