HOMESTEAD, Fla – Kevin Harvick is arguably one of the best drivers under this new Championship 4 format. The Stewart-Haas Racing driver won the inaugural year of it back in 2014. Now, in its sixth year of existence, Harvick is back to the final round for the fifth time.
The only time that he didn’t head to the Homestead-Miami Speedway since the Championship 4 started six years ago and wasn’t championship eligible was in 2016. He stared on the pole and finished third in the race that season. He also led 79 laps that day.
Harvick, won the race at the Texas Motor Speedway a few weeks ago for the third straight year. That put him into the position to win a second championship of his career. That would put him rich history to score multiple championships over the course of his career.
Also, in order to win, Harvick is going to have to win the race too. Under this format, the champion has won the Ford EcoBoost 400 each and every season. If Harvick can, that would be his 50th trip to victory lane. That too would be rich territory.
There’s no doubt about it, Harvick is a future Hall of Famer. He’s won the Daytona 500, the Coca-Cola 600, the Brickyard 400, the Southern 500, the Bristol Night Race, the All-Star race and now a potential second championship.
