Kevin Harvick won both stages and the race this Sunday evening to get his 7th win this season. This time? in Michigan international Speedway. Harvick wasn't allowed to do a burnout due to inspection, he was told, "Do not damage the car." Keelan Harvick, Harvick's son got to cross the track and get the checkered flag, he’d been asking Kevin for a while.
“It’s pretty awesome just wanna say thank you to everyone at Stewart-Haas Racing.” Harvick said in his post race interview. 'Kid’s drive NASCAR was today, how about this turn out Kevin?' he was asked. “Thank you for everything you do.”
Keelan got his own race car, he got to grab his first checkered flag, and his first ride to victory lane this week. Keelan got a fist bump from Truex while in the car. “You know what we’ve had a great summer.” Kevin said when asked how he can run the race but Keelan steals the show.
Harvick asked Keelan if he wanted to get out if the 4 car and he said no.
When asked what the most important thing about the season is now, Harvick said, “The most important thing is winning races right now and getting all the points you can.”
Keelan was handed a water bottle and he sprayed down the guy who was standing closest, while the guy was pointing to spray his dad instead. Keelan got to get interviewed by Krista Voda too.
