KEVIN HARVICK QUOTE:
What are your thoughts on driving the No. 33 Hunt Brothers Pizza Chevrolet at Charlotte Motor Speedway?
"Charlotte (Motor Speedway) is one of those places where I seem to run well, but haven't had the finishes that I would have liked in the Nationwide Series. I enjoy running at intermediate-style tracks like Charlotte, especially in the Nationwide Series. I think it will be fun to get behind the wheel of the No. 33 Chevrolet this weekend and I'm hoping that we can visit Victory Lane this time. It would be great to cross this track of the checklist and pick up a win for the team and everyone at Hunt Brothers Pizza."
