Kevin Harvick Races Folds of Honor Car at Daytona
Kevin Harvick’s Budweiser Chevrolet will be sporting special patriotic colors this weekend in support of Folds of Honor. Kevin Harvick is currently sixth in the NASCAR Sprint Cup Standings the highest driver in the standings without a win this year. He has three top five finishes and eight top ten finishes this season.
Kevin Harvick has this to say about racing at Daytona International Speedway. “Speedway racing has been good for us. The last couple of races at Talladega (Superspeedway) haven’t been great due to some crashes, but Daytona (International Speedway) has been a good race track for us. I think the main talk when we get back this year is going to be about cooling as we go to the restrictor plate stuff again. Obviously, with the race being in July the cooling isn’t going to be better than it was in February, so it will be interesting to find that balance as to how hard you can push the engine and keep yourself in a position to be able to run up front and hopefully win the race.”
Last year Kevin raced the “Folds of Honor” car in this same race to a seventh-place finish. This special paint scheme was also raced in the Budweiser Shootout in February. Kevin won the race in 2010 with a similar paint scheme
The patriotic red, white and blue Budweiser Folds of Honor paint scheme will again be featured on Harvick’s No. 29 Chevrolet this weekend at Daytona in support of the Folds of Honor Foundation, which provides post-secondary educational scholarships for families of U.S. military personnel killed or disabled while serving their country. The Folds of Honor logo will also be featured on the TV panel of the No. 29 Chevrolet. Visit http://www.foldsofhonor.org/ for additional information.
