KEVIN HARVICK QUOTE:
What are some of the biggest differences of running a NASCAR Nationwide Series car at Indianapolis Motor Speedway, compared to a NASCAR Sprint Cup Series car?
"I've never run a NASCAR Nationwide Series event at Indianapolis Motor Speedway, but based on my experience with the Nationwide cars, compared to the Sprint Cup cars, they are extremely slow down the straightaway, but you still carry a tremendous amount of corner speed. I think you'll battle some of the same issues you do with a Sprint Cup Series car, only at a slower pace."
