How NASCAR Champion Kyle Larson Pays It Forward for His Son

Every time you like and share this post, Johnson & Johnson will donate $1 (per social action), up to $500,000, via the Global Moms Relay to help improve the health and well-being of families worldwide in support of Shot@Life, UNFPA, Girl Up, UNICEF USA, and Nothing But Nets.

I’m the proud dad of a two-and-a-half-year-old son named Owen and he’s so much fun. Being a parent has been a blast and watching him grow up has been amazing.

We’re lucky enough to be able to pretty much supply Owen with everything he’ll ever need and spoil him quite a bit. I wish every family out there could just have all the basic needs it takes to live: a safe place for kids to play, good healthcare, and education.

There are so many more other things but just the basic things in life are very important for all families, and I really hope that the United Nations Foundation can be able to do their part to help families.

Kyle Larson is currently among the points leaders in the Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series and qualified for the 2017 postseason after winning at Fontana. Larson also earned Sunoco Rookie of the Year honors in 2014 after winning the same award in the XFINITY Series in 2013. Larson has two career Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series wins, seven career wins in the XFINITY Series, and two career wins in the Camping World Truck Series.

Often among the youngest of his peers to reach a milestone, whether it be his ascent to NASCAR, fatherhood, owning a home, or becoming an entrepreneur, Kyle’s journeys are fast-paced. The shy kid with a dream from northern California can proudly serve as a role model for others chasing down their own dreams in a number of ways.

As a new and young dad, there are many things Kyle wants to share with his son. Kyle and Owen are sure to quickly bond as he teaches him the trades of being a man, like how to change a tire or tune his engine. And while Kyle already possesses strong traits that are primed for fatherhood, there are many others he’s working to master before passing along to Owen.

Wherever life takes him, whatever adventures he’ll encounter along the way, Kyle will evolve in ways that even he won’t expect. But in the end, he’ll always come back around to his roots as the kid with a dream, doing what he loves.
