In eight starts in the series at the 1.5-mile track, the driver has gathered one win (2006), one pole (2008), five top-five and five top-10 finishes.

SEARCHING FOR A WIN: Over the years KHI entries have made nine starts at Kansas Speedway in the Nationwide Series.

NO. 4 PREVIOUS RACE RECAP: Harvick took over driving duties of the No. 4 OneMain Financial Chevrolet Impala at Daytona International Speedway on July 1. One of four KHI entries for the Nationwide Series race, Harvick qualified his Chevrolet Impala on the pole and remained near the front of the field for the majority of the event before being shuffled out of the top 10 late in the race. Harvick and the No. 4 OneMain Financial Chevrolet avoided the wild multi-car accident which occurred as the race ended and walked away with an 18th-place finish.

What are your thoughts going into the Nationwide Series race at Kansas Speedway?
“I’m really looking forward to getting behind the wheel of the Hunt Brothers Pizza Chevrolet Impala this weekend. I enjoy racing at Kansas Speedway. I have one Nationwide win at the track so far, so it’s safe to say Kansas has been good to me. The track reminds me a lot of Chicagoland Speedway, only the bumps are in different places, and we have done well there too. All that, coupled with the fact that our intermediate-track program has been pretty good this year, I think we should do well this weekend.”
