NASCAR's Larson fired after sponsors walk over racial slur

CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) Kyle Larson has been fired by Chip Ganassi Racing two days after the NASCAR driver used a racial slur on a live stream of a virtual race. Larson used the N-word during a Sunday night iRacing event and the clip went viral. He was first suspended without pay by Ganassi and then suspended by NASCAR, which ordered the half-Japanese driver to complete sensitivity training. Sponsors started dropping Larson and Ganassi was left with no choice but to fire the driver.�
