Kevin Harvick could return in a limited Xfinity or Truck Series schedule
Kevin Harvick may not be completely done with NASCAR racing after all. The 60-time Cup Series winner revealed on “Dale Jr. Download.” That he would consider competing in the Xfinity Series or the Craftsman Truck Series.
“I think that’s something that I would have to lean on someone like (Dale Earnhardt Jr.) to say: ‘Is this worth doing?'” Harvick said in the interview with Dale Earnhardt Jr. I want to make sure I’m doing a really good job for FOX. So once I’m done with that in June and I’m like, “Maybe we can juggle this; this looks like a good weekend and we can do this?”
Earnhardt has run one or two Xfinity Series races a year since retiring from full-time Cup racing at the end of the 2017 season. Now, Harvick may follow suit after taking stock of his post-NASCAR life on Fox broadcasts throughout the first half of the year.
Harvick won the 2001 and 2006 Xfinity Series championships with Richard Childress Racing, as well as the 2014 Cup Series title with Stewart-Haas Racing.
From 2004 through 2011, Kevin Harvick Incorporated fielded entries in the Xfinity Series. His team racked up 10 wins during that period, including five wins for Harvick himself.
KHI’s Truck Series team, which opened its doors in 2001, has seen more success. He quickly built the team with Ron Hornaday Jr. becoming a Nascar Hall of Famer through his success with KHI. Hornaday won the 1996 and 1998 championships with Dale Earnhardt, but it was Harvick’s team that cemented his legacy. Hornaday won the 2007 and 2009 championships with KHI.
And of course, Harvick has won 13 Truck Series races with his own equipment over the years.
If Harvick returns to racing, it is unknown what organization he will race for. He has indicated that he would like to compete with a team that has a niche in the race.
“The driving piece for me is still there,” Harvick said. “I don’t know what that means yet or what I’ll be involved in or what exactly it consists of. There won’t be much.
“I’m not sure yet. The door is open. I’ll never drive in Cup again. I can’t be competitive, I can’t bring myself to go out there and say: ‘I’m looking for top 30’. That’s what it’s going to be. You’ll be lucky to get in.” 30.”
Harvick will make his official Nascar on Fox debut during the Busch Light Clash at the LA Coliseum on Sunday, February 4, 2024.
