Kevin Harvick will run the NASCAR K&N Pro Series West race on June 24 at Sonoma Raceway, the driver announced via his SiriusXM Radio Show "Happy Hours" on Tuesday night.
"(I'm) going to be the old guy that shows up," said Harvick, who will fittingly pilot the No. 4 ride. "I have fun when I go do those events. You'd love to win and you want to go out and do that obviously to be competitive, but it's really, it's just a series that gave me several breaks and several opportunities to showcase what I did as a kid."
Harvick hasn't raced a fulltime season in the K&N Pro Series West since 1997. The Stewart-Haas Racing driver last raced in the series in 2007 at Iowa, where he celebrated his seventh series win. He said he wants to shine some light on a series where young drivers have to go through many ranks to eventually be successful in racing.
"It's hard for young kids to come up," Harvick said. "So, if we can go out there and have fun and bring the west series some exposure and bring some attention to that, that would really be my main goal; to bring some attention to the race, the competitors, all the people that are a part of that series."
