One of the hottest drivers in NASCAR at the moment is Stewart-Haas Racing’s Kevin Harvick. In fact, he is so hot this season he is the only driver in any of the three NASCAR national series to post multiple wins (three MENCS wins, one NXS). In his only NASCAR Xfinity Series start this season (Atlanta), he won with Biagi-DenBeste Racing in the No. 98 Ford Mustang, the same rocket he will strap into this weekend at Texas Motor Speedway thanks to an alliance formed in the off-season between Biagi DenBeste Racing and Stewart-Haas Racing.
It shouldn’t surprise you the two-time NASCAR Xfinity Series champion and Bakersfield, California, native is one of the favorites for this weekend’s My Bariatric Solution 300 at Texas Motor Speedway. Harvick has the second-most series wins all-time at the famed 1.5-mile track with five victories (2001, 2005, 2006, 2007 and 2012). In total, he has made 20 series starts at Texas, posting the third-most top fives (11), the most top 10s (17) and an average finish of 7.3; including a third-place finish in this event last season.
Harvick will not be the only Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series title contender competing in the Xfinity Series race on Saturday, April 7 (3 p.m. ET on FOX, PRN and SiriusXM). He will also be joined by Richard Childress Racing’s Ty Dillon in the No. 3 Chevrolet Camaro, Team Penske’s Ryan Blaney in the No. 22 Ford Mustang and Chip Ganassi Racing’s Jamie McMurray in the No. 42 Chevrolet Camaro.
