Harvick keeps Bud, drives No. 4 for Stewart-Haas
Question of the Day
LOUDON, N.H. (AP) - Kevin Harvick was stuck in a rut after so many empty seasons chasing a championship with Richard Childress Racing.
“When you show up to the same desk for 12 or 13 years, you’re like, `Man, I need a new desk,’” Harvick said.
More like a new team.
So Harvick will swap the car, get a new work address, even change his number.
Just toss him a cooler _ he’s keeping the beer.
Harvick will take his Budweiser sponsorship with him when he makes his long-awaited move to Stewart-Haas Racing in 2014. Harvick will have Budweiser on the No. 4 Chevrolet as the primary sponsor for 20 races in 2014.
Harvick’s move had been brewing since he made the decision last year to bolt the RCR team that hired him in 1999. He’s made the most of his lame duck season, with two wins and eight straight top-10s in the No. 29 to park him in fourth place in the points standings.
So is Ryan Newman.
“We’re not ready to expand to a fourth team,” Stewart said. “That’s what’s made this a bittersweet day. I’m bringing in another one of my friends to the organization, also knowing that I’m losing a friend at the end of the year. … This was a business decision.”
“I do not know what my future holds. I have no idea,” Newman said. “That’s something that weighs on my shoulders. I have a little homework to do. I can’t say I’m happy with how everything unfolded.”
Newman, 16th in the points race, could fill the empty seat at RCR. Kurt Busch, who drives for Furniture Row Racing, is a potential candidate along with Childress‘ grandson, Austin Dillon. Childress has Paul Menard and Jeff Burton under contract. He could just replace Harvick or add a fourth car.
