Kyle Larson has completed his mandated sensitivity training but remains indefinitely suspended by NASCAR, NBC Sports has confirmed.

NASCAR indefinitely suspended Larson on April 13, a day after he uttered a racial slur during an iRacing event. NASCAR also required Larson to complete sensitivity training.

NASCAR had no comment on Larson completing his training.

Chip Ganassi Racing fired Larson on April 14. The team hired Matt Kenseth on April 27 to drive the No. 42 car for the rest of the season.

Larson is scheduled to compete in a World of Outlaws race Friday at Knoxville (Iowa) Raceway. The World of Outlaws had said that Larson, who owns a team in the series, would be permitted to compete in the series after finishing sensitivity training.

Former NASCAR driver Kasey Kahne also is scheduled to compete in that race, which marks the resumption of the season for the World of Outlaws. Kahne has not competed in that series since being injured in a crash a year ago at Williams Grove Speedway.

Friday’s event at Knoxville will be closed to the public but will be televised via pay-per-view streaming on DIRTVision.
