Harvick's Participation In the K&N Pro Series Race Helpful

Harvick's Participation In the K&N Pro Series Race Helpful NASCAR Race Mom was very surprised at some people’s response to Kevin Harvick’s entry into and win of the K&N Pro Series race, the Carneros 200 at Sonoma Raceway. Harvick, a Bakersfield, California native, held off hard-charging Sunoco Rookie of the Year contender in Will Rodgers in a tight racing battle. 

Harvick, who won the 1998 K&N Pro Series West championship on his way up to NASCAR’s highest level related, "It always feels good to win no matter what it is," said Harvick. "The main objective was to come have fun, shine a little light on the series and shine a little light on how much talent is in the series. This particular series did a lot for me and to come back and be a part of it, see the health of it and see the young guys racing was the main objective.

However, negative comments were abound. One person commented, “not impressed.” Another, “suck away as much prize money as I can from these teams that depend on it". He has no business running at this level.”

Therefore, NRM just had to put her two cents worth in. I have experience in this series. My son raced it for five years. To me, having Mr. Harvick participate in a race would always be welcomed as long as he raced and related respectfully.

In my opinion Harvick went above and beyond to help bring notice and honor to a series that is oft times hidden in the background. Many of today’s NASCAR stars have had their start in the K&N Pro Series (West & East) and for the 2014 Sprint Cup Series Champion to acknowledge this rung in the NASCAR Ladder is huge.

After the race, Harvick went to twitter the same day to congratulate runner-up Will Rodgers:

Then Harvick invited the young racer to watch the cup race from his pits. Kevin Harvick went on to collect his first Sonoma Raceway Cup Victory Sunday!!! Harvick was the eleventh different driver to score a cup win in 2017 and earn a chase berth!

NASCAR Race Mom was thrilled for him, his family, and team. Only goes to show you - Good things happen to people who do good things.

Harvick knows how to take care of his sponsors as well!!!

Hoping the Harvick family chooses the K&N Pro Series West when son Keelan decides to go racing.
