Kyle Larson is racing to win his first Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series title this season.
Off the track, the Elk Grove native is in a completely different race: He’s challenging children to beat his time in cup stacking.
In a video posted on Tuesday to his Twitter account, @KyleLarsonRacin, Larson gives an example of how it’s done. The time to beat is 7.6 seconds.
Never miss a local story.
To do the challenge, you need 10 disposable plastic cups, like the ones made by Solo, and a flat surface. Cups are to be placed in a pyramid – four on the bottom, three on the above row, then two and one at the very top – then returned to a single stack.
Parents are asked to shoot video of their child attempting the challenge, visit kidsvsdrivers.accelerationnation.com to upload it, share it on Twitter or Instagram and tag it with #KidsDriveNASCAR and #Promotion.
Last week’s contest was a toss challenge issued by Kyle Busch. Next week’s test has not yet been posted.
