Kevin Harvick Hopes Texas Produces First Win In His Own Car

Horn FanSenior Writer IJune 26, 2016

Kevin Harvick, has won the last three fall Nationwide races at Texas Motor Speedway for Richard Childress Racing.

Harvick is hoping too make it four fall races in a row, he's won and this one would be special. It would be his first win for his own team, driving the No. 33 Camping World car.

Harvick's been close with his own team to winning, with finishing second twice in Spring races at Atlanta ands Phoenix.

The No. 33 car has recorded two wins with Tony Stewart driving, but hasn't been two victory lane for two seasons.

In 20 starts, compiled, two poles, seven top-fives and 10-top 10 finishes.

"Anytime you win a race it is always exciting, but going for a fourth straight win at the same track means a lot. I have a lot of confidence when we come to Texas Motor Speedway. I've had some really good runs there in my career. For whatever reason, I like this race track," Harvick said. (

It's been a season of change for the Harvick's, they've cut their Nationwide program to just one car and made changes in the truck program releasing Jack Sprague.

They have the No. 33 Camping World car operating without a real full-time crew chief. It's been rotating between their truck crew chief's Ernie Cope, Rick Ren and the 33 car chief Jason Meeks, changing each race and with them seventh currently in Owner points.

They havedone a really great job, with Kevin Harvick, Cale Gale or Ron Hornaday, driving the No. 33 car and deserve to be called the MVP's of the Nationwide Series if such a award existed in NASCAR.

Now it hasn't been all bad for Hevin Harvick, Inc. in 2008. Ron Hornaday, got his sixth win on a Truck or Treat race, on Halloween night and sits six points behind Johnny Benson now in the point race in trucks.

Plus the No. 2 truck with Ryan Newman, behind the wheel recorded, it's first win last week at Atlanta.

"But knowing Harvick's desire, it's safe to assume that his season wouldn't be complete without breaking through with a win in his Nationwide race, something that is very plausible this weekend." (

"The entire No. 33 team has given me a car capable of winning each and every week and I hope that will carry over giving me a shot to win my fourth consecutive race here at Texas Motor Speedway and my first in the Nationwide car for Kevin Harvick, Inc," Harvick said. (
