Kevin Harvick Post-NASCAR Journey: A Shift to Late Models and Grassroots Racing

Kevin Harvick Post-NASCAR Journey: Just a week after concluding what is likely to be a Hall of Fame-worthy NASCAR career, Kevin Harvick is already contemplating his return to the race track, as revealed in a conversation with Dale Earnhardt Jr. on the “Dale Jr. Download” podcast.

While Harvick has firmly ruled out a return to NASCAR Cup Series racing, citing a lack of competitiveness, he expressed an eagerness to continue racing in other capacities. Harvick, who co-owns the CARS Tour with Earnhardt, Jeff Burton, and Justin Marks, made a notable comeback to Late Model racing earlier this year at North Wilkesboro Speedway.

His Late Model Stock Car, under the ownership of Kevin Harvick Inc. (KHI), has seen drivers like Layne Riggs and Josh Berry take the wheel. Berry recently secured a third-place finish at the Fall Brawl at Hickory Motor Speedway and is slated to drive in upcoming events, including the South Carolina 400 at Florence Motor Speedway and the Thanksgiving Classic at Southern National Motorsports Park.

Looking ahead, KHI has acquired a Super Late Model with plans to participate in the prestigious Snowball Derby at Five Flags Speedway in Pensacola, Florida, featuring Stewart-Haas Racing driver Ryan Preece.

Harvick expressed a renewed passion for seeing race cars in his shop, hinting at KHI’s intentions to run multiple Late Model Stocks full-time next year. While he anticipates having drivers from KHI Management compete in these events, he also expressed a personal interest in getting behind the wheel, possibly even participating in occasional NASCAR Xfinity Series races.
