Kyle Larson says he has no hesitation getting back in a race car this weekend following his frightening crash at Daytona International Speedway.

The 20-year-old Larson was not injured when his car went airborne into the fence on the final lap of the Nationwide Series race on Saturday. More than two dozen fans were injured by large chunks of debris and a tire that flew into the stands from his car.

Larson told The Associated Press on Tuesday the accident was not the worst of his career, and he won't have a second thought about racing again.

Larson is scheduled to run for Nationwide Series rookie of the year and will race Saturday at Phoenix. He's also planning to run the USAC race Friday night at Canyon Speedway Park.
