The 44-year old California native is entering his 20th full-time season of NASCAR Cup Series racing and his 7th with Stewart-Haas Racing. After spending a majority of his career with Richard Childress Racing, taking over the seat from the late Dale Earnhardt, Harvick has enjoyed great success with SHR since joining in 2014. In 6 seasons, the veteran scored 26 of his 49 career wins and a NASCAR Cup Series championship in his first season with the team.
In recent years, Harvick expanded his resume by involving himself in media providing color commentary for select Xfinity Series events as well as his own SiriusXM radio show “Happy Hours” with Matt Yocum. However, Harvick had recently stated that he would be taking a step back from these roles
