DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. — Kevin Harvick put a mic drop on his TV broadcasting career and turned off the dial on his radio show. The moonlighting gigs have been parked, minimizing his distractions, maximizing his family time, but certainly not accelerating any thoughts about retirement.
If he kept his talk show, Harvick could have broken his own news: His time in the media on hiatus, but his racing career is miles from the finish.
At 44, Harvick is not only still on the short list of NASCAR's elite drivers, the 2014 Cup champion is set to drive for a few more seasons after he agreed to a two-year contract extension with Stewart-Haas Racing through the 2023 season.
"I really like racing with the group of guys and the organization that I'm at," Harvick said Saturday at Daytona International Speedway. "I've worked my whole career and feel like I got here with a group of guys and people that I've had success with, and for me, going through a few more years in the car just made sense."
