KEVIN HARVICK QUOTE:
What are your thoughts on returning to Charlotte Motor Speedway in the Nationwide Series?
"It's always fun to get back into the Nationwide car with the No. 33 guys, especially at Charlotte (Motor Speedway). I seem to run well there, and our intermediate-track program has been pretty good this season. I'm hoping things will go our way and we can put the Fast Fixin' Chevrolet in Victory Lane."
