KEVIN HARVICK, NO. 29 BUDWEISER IS BACK CHEVROLET, discussed his success at Martinsville, the announced changes at Bristol Motor Speedway, baby-proofing his home and other topics.
TALK ABOUT YOUR OUTLOOK FOR THIS WEEKEND AND JUST HOW YOU’VE BEEN RUNNING. “Last year we ran well here and obviously we like to run here being so close to home. We end up with a lot of guys from the shop that put in a lot of time. They bring their families, and then local fans and everybody that comes to the race track. So, it’s a fun weekend and a race track that we’ve run well at as a company over the past couple of years. I felt like we’ve always run well here, we just haven’t always got the results that we needed. It’s fun to finally get that win out of the way last year, and hopefully we can start putting a few more of them in the victory column and go from there. It’s been a good start to the season, and hopefully we can keep it rolling.”
THIS TRACK IS SO CLOSE TO YOUR HOME AND YOU’VE HAD A LOT OF SUCCESS IN THE TRUCK; ARE YOU MISSING AT ALL NOT BEING A TEAM OWNER THIS WEEKEND? “It really hasn’t been on mind at all. As I’ve gone through the weeks, I think its become even less of a thought as I’ve been able to do the things on the race track and away from the race track. I’ve been able to spend time at home and concentrate on a lot of things at home with the big boy coming and the things that are required to change around the house. So there’s a lot of things going on. I really haven’t missed it at all, and really underestimated how big of a relief it would actually be. So, its been great and I still get to drive the cars and trucks, and enjoy that part of it. I get to be more a part of my Cup team off the race track, in the trailer, and at the shop. That part of it is going well.”
