Before an ambulance blocked pit road in Saturday’s NASCAR race and stacked up unsuspecting cars, there wasn’t much outside attention on medical transport at tracks. But following Saturday’s incident several drivers say there’s been a number of issues this year—including, bizarrely, ambulances getting lost on the way…
Tim Fedewa’s dropped sandwich led NASCAR to revoke the Kevin Harvick spotter’s credentials during practice for tomorrow’s Brickyard 400 at Indianapolis.
Dale Earnhardt Jr. was fighting his way back up to the front during tonight’s Coke Zero 400 at Daytona International Speedway. He was already back on the lead lap after hitting the wall near the end of Stage 2, but then a big crash in Stage 3 put him back into the wall and ended his race tonight for good. Ouch.
Remember the awkward coincidence of NASCAR driver Kevin Harvick being in the television booth when a driver he called a spoon-fed rich kid intentionally wrecked someone under caution? Well, that kid got no fines or penalties for it. Instead, NASCAR served up penalties to drivers whose cars failed inspection.
After being spun out late in the NASCAR Xfinity Series race on Saturday, Austin Dillon retaliated against a driver under caution. The scene felt odd, but it wasn’t the wreck. It was the steaming awkwardness of the broadcast, because the guy commentating called Dillon a spoon-fed rich kid when they were teammates.
If you haven’t heard, the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series Race at Pocono Raceway is under rain delay—at that track, it’s really no surprise. Instead of waiting for the track to dry in a boring, conventional way, Kevin Harvick’s kid is swimming in a puddle. He’s brought some drivers in on it, too.
Unless you’re a podiatrist, or perhaps one of those people who revels in seeing gross stuff on the Internet, you might not want to look at this tweet by NASCAR driver Kevin Harvick. With that disclaimer, your own morbid curiosity is going to get the best of you and force you to look, right? Right. Here we go!
Phoenix International Raceway featured one of the most breathtaking and fun endings ever to a NASCAR Sprint Cup race today. Not only did it end in a photo finish, but Kevin Harvick and Carl Edwards were trading paint all the way up to the finish line. It’s everything awesome about NASCAR in a nutshell.
In a surprising move this week, NASCAR Sprint Cup Series powerhouse Stewart-Haas Racing announced that they were moving from campaigning Chevrolets to Fords for 2017. Naturally, some NASCAR fans are coping with this news better than others.
If there’s one thing that defines this race at Texas Motor Speedway, it’s tires. Drivers are struggling to find grip on the surface, and wear is a serious issue. NASCAR fans who felt as if Kevin Harvick wrecked at Talladega to advance in the Chase rejoiced a bit with the Kenseth fans: Harvick’s tire blew up, too.
Either this was the most ham-fisted attempt to shorten a pit stop ever by making the fueler run with the car as he drops the fuel in or Kevin Harvick tried to leave a little early here.
Like the changing colors of the leaves, children returning back to school and the three-tailed flying dung-birds returning to roost in Capistrano or something, certain events mark the start of a season. NASCAR’s Chase for the Sprint Cup doesn’t seem official until grown dudes are shoving each other over race cars.
It's not even the first race of the season. It's a pre-season exhibition race: the Sprint Unlimited at Daytona International Speedway. Of course, we've already got Kevin Harvick confronting Joey Logano without taking his helmet off in pit road after the two exchanged hate-taps on track after the race.
USA Today motorsports reporter Jeff Gluck captured this little video where the fan reaction says it all. Fans cheer for Kevin Harvick and Jeff Gordon, but Brad Keselowski? Not so much.
Usually, any crew member who punches a driver ends up looking for a job afterwards. Not so for the crew members of the #5 and #24 cars who threw punches in the fight that included drivers Brad Keselowski, Jeff Gordon and Kevin Harvick. Hendrick Motorsports has their back.
Per NASCAR, it's throwing a punch that crosses the line if you're fighting in the pits after a race. I guess headlocks aren't hardcore enough. Four crew members were hit with fines and suspensions, and their crew chiefs were fined and placed on probation for not properly overseeing their crew.
There's a debate going on about exactly what Kevin Harvick said about his teammate Danica Patrick and we repeated a version of it, which makes us a part of that debate. Here's what was said and what we think it actually means.
In the midst of all the celebrating going on about Bubba Wallace's historic win, there was a nasty little bit of stupidity towards the end between Kevin Harvick and Ty Dillon. One little shunt from Dillon into Harvick led to a rant about the nature of NASCAR, team-owning dynasties, and racing itself.
Kevin Harvick has never won a Cup race at Texas Motor Speedway, and two hours before Sunday's race he received a sign from above: This wasn't going to be the day.
