Kevin Harvick is set for his final NASCAR Cup Series season, and a win in his final Daytona 500 appearance would win one lucky fan $2 million.

2014 NASCAR Cup Series champion Kevin Harvick announced earlier this offseason that the 2023 season will be his 23rd and final season in the sport. He plans to join Mike Joy and Clint Bowyer in the Fox broadcast booth full-time in 2024.

The 2023 season is set to see the 47-year-old Bakersfield, California native make his 22nd career Daytona 500 attempt, and a win for him in this year’s running of the Great American Race would net one lucky fan quite a bit of money.

Busch Light is giving fans the opportunity for a massive pay day if Harvick can open up his final Cup Series season with a win at the four-turn, 2.5-mile (4.023-kilometer) high-banked Daytona International Speedway oval.

If the 2007 Daytona 500 winner can add to his illustrious resume with a win the 65th annual running of the race, one lucky fan will add $2 million to their bank account, courtesy of Busch.

Busch, a longtime primary sponsor of Kevin Harvick’s No. 4 Stewart-Haas Racing Ford, is the official beer of NASCAR.

To put that payout in perspective, reigning Daytona 500 winner Austin Cindric took home somewhere in the neighborhood of $1.5 million to $2 million with his victory last year.

All fans need to do is hope Harvick can come through for a second time, and one of them will be in a similar position — without having to bet any of their own money, and without having to survive a 500-mile superspeedway race.

From now until Saturday, February 18, the day before the big race, fans can enter the sweepstakes here.
