Tony Stewart has his eyes set on this driver to join Stewart-Haas Racing


After winning at Michigan International Speedway, 24-year old Kyle Larson is now the leader in the NASCAR Cup Series points standings.

Larson's success on the track has caught the attention of NASCAR legend Tony Stewart, who co-owns Stewart-Haas Racing. Stewart was asked on Twitter about Larson joining Stewart-Haas Racing, and he wasn't shy about his desire to have Larson on his team.

Larson is under contract with Chip Ganassi Racing, but several teams will pursue him until he re-signs with Chip Ganassi Racing.

Hendrick Motorsports is also expected to pursue Larson after Dale Earnhardt Jr. retires, but Chip Ganassi Racing is the favorite to keep him under contract.

Stewart could definitely sway Larson into joining his team, but he will have to battle a long list of suitors for Larson.
