Kevin Harvick's defining moment came when he feuded with Ty Dillon at Martinsville during a Camping World Series truck race.
With Harvick open earlier in the season about his departure from Richard Childress Racing, there was always of question of why the driver was leaving.
Childress clearly didn't want him to leave, but Harvick was ready to leave and head over to Stewart-Haas Racing.
Things seemed quiet at Richard Childress Racing, until the truck race at Martinsville.
Harvick said, via Nate Ryan of USA Today:
(Dillon) just dumped me. Exactly the reason why I'm leaving RCR because you've got those kids coming up, and they've got no respect for what they do in this sport and they've had everything fed to them with a spoon.
So I cut him slack all day, and he just dive-bombs me in there, dumps me. It's a shame you've got to get taken out by some rich kid like that.
While he eventually apologized for what he said, Harvick seems to be leaving Richard Childress partly because of RCR eventually bringing Austin and Ty Dillon to the Sprint Cup Series.
Harvick's defining moment of the 2013 season came when he vented his frustration about RCR. Is Harvick right, though? We'll have to wait until Austin and Ty make it up to the Sprint Cup Series to find out.
