That’s now confirmed as Harvick is set to run the CARS Tour event at North Wilkesboro Speedway. The race takes place May 17th, just ahead of the NASCAR All-Star Race.

He’ll race a throwback paint scheme to his 1993 paint scheme. He won the track championship that year at Mesa Marin Raceway.

The team has also found the old championship t-shirt. And, they are reproducing it, exactly as it was.

Kevin Harvick Inc. is fielding the machine. The NASCAR championship winning team makes a return following a 12-year hiatus.

The late model will be the second throwback scheme Harvick runs during the week at North Wilkesboro. He’ll also be racing the No. 29 car in the Cup Series event.

Kevin Harvick comments ahead of CARS Tour event

“I’m excited to get to North Wilkesboro and compete in the CARS Tour,” said Harvick.

“I’ve watched Dale (Earnhardt, Jr.) go out and have fun racing with these guys and I’ve been kind of jealous watching from the sidelines. I want to go out, have fun, get to know the racers who compete in these series regularly and see how I can help the drivers with my racing knowledge.”

“Short-track racing really is the root that feeds into the higher series and everything we do in racing. The best way to make sure that continues and is strong is to be a part of it and racing at North Wilkesboro is just one of those steps. It’s going to be a great week with all we have planned between the late model and the Cup car.”

“With where we are on the management side, the ownership in the CARS Tour and with Keelan’s racing, it felt like the right time to bring KHI back,” said Harvick. “For now it’ll be a place for us to run races to gain experience for our KHI Management, LLC (KHIM) drivers, compete in the CARS Tour to better understand how we can help make changes for the better and ultimately, have some fun racing.”

DeLana Harvick comments

“I grew up watching my dad compete for our family-owned team and traveling to the racetrack every week with him,” said DeLana Harvick.

“When it was time for Keelan to pick a number, he wanted the No. 62 to remember his Paw Paw John and to set himself apart from Kevin. He really wants to be known as his own racer. To see my dad’s number running again with Keelan and now with Kevin, is really special to our family.”
