Kevin Harvick wasn’t sure if people would be offended by his Atlanta win celebration in 2001
In 2001, NASCAR lost Dale Earnhardt. In his place, rookie Kevin Harvick filled the seat of the 2.9 car. It wasn’t quite the #3 car but close…
The black was replaced with white. But, in just the 2nd race as the new driver, Kevin Harvick went to victory lane.
Last week, Austin Dillon put the #3 back in victory lane on the 20th anneversary of Earnhardt Sr’s only Daytona 500 win. Dillon celebrated by doing the exact same burnout through the grass that Sr did.
This week, it’s another Dale Earnhardt Sr tribute. Back to back Earnhardt tributes kick off the 2018 NASCAR racing season.
