CHASSIS HISTORY: The No. 2 team will run chassis No. 062 during the season finale at Homestead this Friday night. This chassis has only been used in competition once this season, when Harvick captured the No. 2 team’s seventh victory of the season November 4 at Texas Motor Speedway.
PREVIOUS RACE RECAP: Harvick climbed behind the wheel of the No. 2 Hunt Brothers Pizza Chevrolet Silverado as the Truck Series made its way to Texas Motor Speedway for the WinStar World Casino 350K on November 4. Harvick started the 147-lap event from the 10th position, before going on to lead the most laps (61) and capture the win. With the victory, KHI secured the 2011 Truck Series Owner’s Championship and clinched the Manufacture’s Championship for Chevrolet.
HARVICK’S THOUGHTS ON HOMESTEAD:
What are your thoughts heading into the race at Homestead-Miami Speedway?
“I feel really good about the Truck Series race at Homestead. I’m a little more relaxed for this race, since we clinched the Truck Series Owner’s Championship after the victory at Texas. Of course the goal is to go out there and put the Hunt Brothers Pizza Chevrolet back in victory lane, but heading into the race knowing we have already achieved one of our goals for the season takes a bit of the pressure away. I think this will be a great race for the team, and I’m extremely excited to celebrate the owner’s championship after the race with the team and our sponsors.”
