One More Round For ‘Happy’ Harvick

A whopping 23 years and 825 races after his first NASCAR Cup Series start in 2001, Kevin Harvick’s final race in NASCAR’s highest division comes at a fitting place — Phoenix Raceway. Ironically, Harvick’s relationship with the Arizona-based race track wasn’t smooth sailing at first. “I think I wrecked in ’94 and ’95, in ’96 we didn’t race, ’97 we did OK, ’98 was OK, and we always just kind of did OK with everything that we had,” Harvick said. “We’ve probably dominated Phoenix because we spent so much time there learning and tearing stuff up and doing the things you’re not supposed to do at the race track,” Harvick said. It’s a racetrack that we put a lot of emphasis on throughout the years because of the fact that we felt like some of our best race tracks were the flat tracks, and Phoenix was one of those,” Harvick continued.
