Is Kyle Larson a Swiftie? He provides the answer

DARLINGTON, S.C. — Kyle Larson is many things — a NASCAR champion, a Coca-Cola 600 winner, and a future Indy 500 competitor. But he doesn't consider himself to be a "Swiftie."

Larson faced questions Saturday at Darlington Raceeway about his appreciation of Taylor Swift's music and whether he was a member of Swift's vocal fanbase. The reason is that he flew to Paris with his wife, Katelyn, and daughter, Audrey, before this weekend.

The purpose? To see Swift perform on her Eras Tour.

Friday 5: Kyle Larson’s quest for greatness could lead to an unforgettable month

Kyle Larson: “I want to be known as somebody who could climb into all different types of cars and be great at what they do.”

"I had never gone to Europe before and it just lined up nice where we had a smaller window to make it there and it was my daughter's birthday," Larson said.

"She's been wanting to go see Taylor Swift, and I've been wanting to go to Europe and it worked out. And so I kind of crashed that party because originally it was supposed to be like a girls trip. And I wanted to go."

Larson showed up to the concert dressed for the occasion. He had on some friendship bracelets that his wife gave him, and he had a Swift T-shirt. Though he actually considered himself a bit underdressed.

"I feel like (as) a Swiftie, you've gotta wear the bedazzled everything," Larson said. "So no, I don't feel like I'm a Swiftie at all.

"I do appreciate her music and how hard she works. But no, I'm not a Swiftie."

Kyle Larson maintains No. 1 spot in NASCAR Power Rankings after Kansas win

The Kansas weekend featured NASCAR’s closest Cup finish.

Larson may not be a Swiftie, but he enjoyed the experience. He saw Swift perform with his wife and daughter. He also enjoyed watching the processes at work.

"The show is cool, but I get intrigued on — I was telling Katelyn (Friday) they had that Eras Tour movie or whatever, which kind of really got me excited about wanting to go see something like that."
