Kevin Harvick will make his CARS Tour debut at North Wilkesboro Speedway on Wednesday, May 17, competing in the series' Late Model Stock event as part of the NASCAR All-Star Race festivities at the historic race track.
Harvick announced the news on Wednesday morning, marking both a return to his racing roots as well as the re-establishment of Kevin Harvick, Inc., the team which won two NASCAR Craftsman Truck Series championships and more than 50 NASCAR National Series races during its time at that level.
"A while back, I had a fan ask me, 'When are you going to race in the CARS Tour?'" says Harvick in the video. I responded, 'The question is, how many times am I going to race in the CARS Tour?'
"So here it is. We're going to race in the CARS Tour at North Wilkesboro Speedway, and some other places as we go along the way. We're re-establishing KHI and we're going to start with the CARS Tour, with me driving the car. I'm excited to have the 62 on the car. I'm excited to have a replica of the original paint scheme, and we have all kinds of stories to tell with it. It's going to be a lot of fun."
This adds to what will already be an exciting All-Star Race week at North Wilkesboro for Harvick, competing in his last full-time season in the NASCAR Cup Series. Harvick had already announced he will be running a throwback scheme to his rookie NASCAR Cup Series season during the All-Star Race, complete with the No. 29 he drove at Richard Childress Racing.
In January, Harvick, along with Dale Earnhardt, Jr., Jeff Burton and Justin Marks, became part of the new ownership group of the CARS Tour. Earnhardt, Jr. competed with the CARS Tour at North Wilkesboro last summer during the Racetrack Revival, finishing third.
