Kevin Harvick Notes of Interest

Kevin Harvick, Driver of the No. 41 Hunt Brothers Pizza Ford Mustang

Hunt Brothers Pizza is running a paint scheme that throws it back to its roots in racing and also gives a nod to your history. What does running the Hunt Brothers Pizza throwback scheme like that mean to you?

“As Hunt Brothers Pizza celebrates its 10th season in NASCAR, I am honored to have been a part of its journey as it has supported me in the Truck, XFINITY and NASCAR Cup Series. But I am completely floored by the company’s creative way of implementing an element of my beginnings in NASCAR for this memorable weekend. This is our eighth season together and Hunt Brothers Pizza has been a great sponsor over the years. I’m looking forward to a strong race in its throwback car.” 

What makes Darlington Raceway so unique in terms of the racing?

“Darlington is a track with a lot of history and is one that you circle on your calendar each year. This track has a lot of character and it is easy to make mistakes, so we just focus on ourselves, race the track and try to avoid making any of those mistakes.”

What is it about Darlington that makes it special for you as a competitor?

“For me, personally, I look forward to coming to Darlington every year just for the fact that it means so much to our sport and has such a huge history in what we have accomplished as a sport altogether. To be able to come back and race and be able to experience things that they have experienced through the years on a racetrack that has been repaved, but its original shape is still the same. To me that is something that is pretty neat. I’m looking forward to the weekend.”
