Key to the City Recipient
"It's an honor to be recognized by Mayor Davis, the Elk Grove City Council and residents of Elk Grove," said Kyle Larson. "When I started racing go-karts around Elk Grove I always hoped to end up in NASCAR, but knew it would take a lot of time and effort to get there. Although my racing frequently took me out of town, I'm proud to call Elk Grove home and proud to represent the city when I race. Being the first Elk Grove native to be recognized with a Key to the City is really special, and I look forward to giving the people here more to cheer about in the future." Born on July 13, 1992, Larson is a native of Elk Grove and a graduate of Pleasant Grove High School, and has been racing since he was seven. Despite his young age, Larson has built an extensive and impressive racing resume, with more than 200 race victories over the series in which he has raced.
