Because of Larson coming on board and running races out of the series, Chase said yeah me too and Hendrick couldn't say much. Didn't take him long to find a race.
This is great news and I can't wait to see how he does in the SBD. This will make my Christmas just a little more enjoyable. Now if Larson or Bowman could hook him up in a nice Chili Bowl ride for 2021. :) All though the Chili Bowl might not be the best place to start a new racing adventure. :(

Why not, he's doing the Snowball and the Rolex 24

I have never worked the Snowball or the Rolex so I don't know how intense it is, but I have the Chili Bowl many times and I wouldn't want to debut there. Even the most experienced and best dirt track drivers in the world have problems there.

So he isn't supposed to? I don't get it. Something like 350 will have problems there.

I would love to see him there win or lose. If he doesn't care to get crashed out then I don't care. Load the hauler up pack the bags kiss mama goodbye and lets hit the road.:cool:

Does Kevin Harvick even care anymore?

Why care with this Championship 4 & stage points system?

The guy had 9 wins, a 2nd place at Kansas due to dirty air, pretty bad luck at Texas due to the rain, and a bad run coupled with more bad luck at Martinsville, yet still wasn’t terrible in those races still top 10-top 15. Why care when NASCAR will just put a fine anytime you say anything about their system.

If he makes it into one of the B features on Saturday, that would be a very good debut. If he makes the main event as a rookie with no dirt experience, that would be phenomenal.

Briscoe, for instance, has made the big show once in six attempts, finishing 22nd.

It's awesome that he's trying.

I know, and it sucks.
He's a total dad. Did you see some of his comments on his younger incidents?

Two years ago he basically redacted the golden horseshoe #48 comment and flat out said "they weren't lucky, they were just fast".

And then another time he was providing commentary on his Greg Biffle incident and more or less said "when you're 25, you feel like you have to make a scene out of everything".

I don't know, maybe fatherhood and being a champion has made Kevin make more of an effort to be a better role model.

Some times to stay out of the dog house you have to make changes as well.
Being married will do that.

I think the other factor is that he aspires to be in the booth. All of a sudden, "likable" becomes important.
