NASCAR likes to do award shows a little bit differently than the average organization, and nothing showed that more than when Kyle Larson’s wife Katelyn shotgunned a beer at the NASCAR Awards show in Nashville, Tennessee on Thursday, December 4.
The sister of World of Outlaws driver Brad Sweet, Katelyn Larson proved how sweet she really is when she threw back a Busch tallboy like she was at a Talladega tailgate. I’ll take, “badass things you can do in an evening gown” for $1,000, Alex.

Now, before you go getting your undies in a bunch: Yes, we realize that Katelyn didn’t actually shotgun a full Busch tallboy, as the 16-ounce can appears to be either empty or mostly empty. So, yeah, maybe the stunt wasn’t entirely legit, but shotgunning a pre-opened beer still beats most of the hokey gimmicks you see at award shows these days.
As you may know, Larson’s Busch moment was a homage to her celebratory shotgun at victory lane at Dover International Speedway back in October, after Kyle won the playoff race at the Monster Mile. As you can see from the below footage, Katelyn’s excitement over her husband’s big win led to a, lets just say, not-so-successful shotgun.
Katelyn and Kyle Larson, the driver of the No. 42 Chevrolet Camaro ZL1 1LE for Chip Ganassi Racing, got married on September 26, 2018. They have two children, Owen Miyata Larson (4) and Audrey Layne Larson (1), and live in Mooresville, North Carolina.
As the brother of Brad Sweet and the wife of Kyle, Katelyn has been around professional auto racing for most of her life, meaning she’s probably shotgunned a fair share of beers in her day. Hey, even the pros can get rusty.
