2013: Kevin Harvick News & Nuggets

With the 2013 season being Kevin Harvick’s last one at Richard Childress Racing, he surly wants to go out in a bang. There is no official confirmation yet but, it appears he will be going to Stewart-Haas Racing in 2014. There is certainly a good chance that Harvick can pull out a few wins and possibly a run for the championship. The 37 year old is still looking for his first NASCAR Sprint Cup Series Championship.

Kevin Harvick started his career for Richard Childress Racing in 2001 after the death of Dale Earnhardt. With a new number, Harvick won in his first season at Atlanta edging out Jeff Gordon. It was a life changing moment for him and has propelled him to 19 wins at 188 top tens. He is definitely an above average driver but he is still missing a championship. I’m sure it would be a lot to him and his team to go out with a championship.

Don’t be surprised if you see Harvick pull out a win in the Great American Race. He already won the race in 2007 in one of the greatest finishes the race has ever seen. He is a very good restrictor plate racer and has a great shot to win the Daytona 500. Harvick is one of those drivers that is able to race on any kind of race track. He has at least one win on every type of track that is one the NASCAR circuit. That is a trait that is usually possessed by champions and Harvick has a good chance to take it all this year. Kevin Harvick will once again be sponsored by Budweiser and be driving the number 29 as he as done throughout his career. His crew chief will again be veteran Gil Martin.

Kevin Harvick certainly has a good chance to win the championship this year and is looking to go out of Richard Childress Racing on top.
