Larson double quest exemplifies NASCAR, IndyCar cooperation

Please excuse Kyle Larson if he looks a bit distracted this weekend at Indianapolis Motor Speedway. No, his mind won't be occupied with his upcoming run at a second NASCAR Cup Series title, with the postseason only weeks away. No, it won't even be occupied with concern over how his teammates will recover from last week's debacle in Michigan.

During the Saturday-Sunday IndyCar-NASCAR doubleheader, if we catch Larson dreamily staring off into the skies of Speedway, Indiana, like Luke Skywalker looking toward the sunset, it's because he is already thinking about the next time he will be at Indy with a helmet in hand.
