Just in: Kevin Harvick to return to Stewart-Haas Racing thru 2022.
I’ve been hard on Kevin Harvick since the shenanigans he pulled at Talladega in 2015 and haven’t completely moved on from NASCAR not penalizing him.
Last year, I started to realize how vital he is to Ford, Stewart-Haas Racing, and motorsport. He will never be my favorite driver, but I am starting to respect him more.
It’s good to see Tony Stewart, Gene Haas, and Joe Custer notice how important he is and how successful he has become since he signed on i late 2013. He has undobtedly won the most races in the organization since he joined and has missed the Final 4 on one occasion.
Where do they go from here? Bowyer and Almirola are near the emd of their contracts, as are several drive. Surely, Briscoe is going to replace one and could Blaney or DiBenedetto replace the other. I’d say DiBenedetto has the best shot unless Almirola signs another extension. But DiBenedetto could bring Wood Bros Racing back to prominance.
As many situations are, this is fluid, keep your eyes out for potential updates coming soon.
