NASHVILLE, TN – Former Cup Champion Kevin Harvick says he will learn about his post-2023 plans by Dayton in February.
Harvick’s contract with Stewart-Haas Racing ends after the upcoming season.
Harvick said Thursday ahead of the NASCAR Awards that “things could go differently at this particular moment” in regards to what he’ll be doing, but he reaffirmed that “going to Daytona, I’ll know what I’m going to do.”
The Daytona 500 is scheduled for February 19th. Harvick expects to make an announcement by then.
“We’re at a stage where everyone needs to know what’s going on,” Harvick said. “There are too many tentacles in everything that happens. Whether it’s a racing team, a rider management company, every element needs to be known. It’s not fair to start the season without knowing anything.”
December 8, Harvick will be 47 years old. The next season will be his 23rd in the Cup. His debut came a week after Dale Earnhardt’s fatal crash at the 2001 Daytona 500. Car owner Richard Childress chose Harvick to be part of Earnhardt’s team.
Harvick won the 2014 Cup championship and 60 races with Richard Childress Racing and Stewart-Haas Racing. He is associated with Kyle Bush ninth on the all-time list of Cup winners.
Harvick won two races last season. His win last August in Michigan ended a 65-race winless streak. He then won the following weekend at Richmond.
Harvick has won at least two races in nine of his last 10 seasons. He has won 41 of his 60 Cup victories since he was 37 years old.
“Kevin, I think is probably the #1 driver leader that he should be.” – Two-time Cup Champion Joey Logano Thursday said. “He has been here the longest. He is very successful. He is very smart. He went through ups and downs. He lived it. There is wisdom in experience. It’s great to hear his opinion on where we are as a sport.”
Harvick’s business interests include management company representing Cup riders Ryan Price, Harrison Burton as well as Ricky Stenhouse Jr.along with other athletes. Harvick has also worked as a broadcaster for Fox Sports’ NASCAR Xfinity races to positive reviews.
Harvick’s son Keelan, 10, races and competes in karting across Europe.
“He’s got one more race in Italy… and then we’ll start over,” Harvick said of his son.
Harvick went overseas after the season finale in Phoenix to watch the Keelan race.
“I think he’s definitely matured a bit since he’s been doing those trips,” Harvick said. “I think it’s important to have this cultural aspect of life in order to feel comfortable doing these things anywhere in the world.”
