Kevin Harvick May Have Budweiser and Old Spice as Sponsors in 2011

That's unofficially of course, but maybe official next week.

It's no secret anymore that Anheuser-Busch InBev will be bring it's Budweiser sponsorship to Richard Childress Racing No. 29 and driver Kevin Harvick.

They'll be part of a split sponsorship package with a certain other sponsor that shouldn't have been too hard to figure out. Of course that depends on whether I got it right.

We knew in April, that Pennzoil-Shell were leaving RCR after the 2010 season for Penske Racing.

It wasn't too long afterwards that Stewart-Haas Racing announced that Proctor Gamble with it's Old Spice brand would not be returning for the 2011 season.

I've never seen anything saying that P&G, were leaving NASCAR and they are a sponsor with Kevin Harvick Inc. with its Tide brand in the Camping World Truck Series.

While Budweiser will be on the majority of the races, which I would guess means 21 races, plus the Bud Shootout and All Star races.

It's also have been tweeted that they would also sponsor Harvick in the Nationwide, using his KHI No. 33 in select races, because the RCR Nationwide program is now KHI.


Harvick does have Cadbury Hershey USA with it's Reese's brand returning for one or more races.

Believe we'll see Old Spice announced as the other piece of the puzzle being paired with Budweiser as Harvick new sponsors and they probably will sponsor 14 races like they have this season.

Several month ago, I read an article on Yahoo about the latest Old Spice commercials; how they were catchy and popular, but that they were temporary as they were switching spokes persons and has yet to be announced.

Back in June, I wrote a piece asking if Kevin Harvick may already have a sponsor signed. It was Old Spice that I was thinking of when I wrote the piece.

While I could be wrong, I expect we'll be hearing next week that in fact it'll be Budweiser/Old Spice/Reese's on Harvick's No. 29
