After 12 years since its last operation in NASCAR, Kevin Harvick Incorporated will be back in action in 2023.
Harvick is set to retire from full-time Cup racing at the end of the 2023 season and begin his career in the Fox booth from 2004. However, it seems that it won’t be the only activity for Stewart-Haas Racing’s No. 4 driver.
He recently accounted that he will take part in the CARS Tour race at North Wilkesboro Speedway on May 17, driving the No. 62 Late Model for KHI. Harvick also credited Dale Earnhardt Jr. for reviving his team.
“I’m excited to get to North Wilkesboro and compete in the CARS Tour,” Harvick said. “I’ve watched Dale [Earnhardt Jr.] go out and have fun racing with these guys and I’ve been kind of jealous watching from the sidelines. I want to go out, have fun, get to know the racers who compete in these series regularly, and see how I can help the drivers with my racing knowledge.
“Short-track racing really is the root that feeds into the higher series and everything we do in racing. The best way to make sure that continues and is strong is to be a part of it and racing at North Wilkesboro is just one of those steps. It’s going to be a great week with all we have planned between the late model and the Cup car.”
Harvick also said that the race at North Wilkesboro Speedway will not be the only event that KHI will take part in. However, he did not reveal the number of events that his team will compete in.
Harvick will be looking to finish his last season on a high note. He has had a good start to the season with two top-five finishes and three top-10 finishes in the five races so far this season.
