What has been a rumor for some time was confirmed early Friday with an official announcement that Richard Childress Racing driver Kevin Harvick will make the move to Stewart-Haas Racing in 2014.
The confirmation came via a press release from longtime sponsor Anheuser-Busch which said it will move with Harvick when he takes the wheel on the No. 4 Chevy in the NASCAR Sprint Cup season in 2014. Harvick entered the Sprint Cup Series with RCR in 2001 taking over after the death of legendary driver Dale Earnhardt Sr. in the Daytona 500.
“We’re very proud to have such an iconic brand in Budweiser and an incredibly accomplished racer in Kevin Harvick join Stewart-Haas Racing,” said Tony Stewart, three-time Sprint Cup Series champion and co-owner of Stewart-Haas Racing with Haas Automation founder Gene Haas. “Budweiser is the leader in its industry and Kevin has proven himself year-after-year in our sport. It’s a partnership we welcome as it will make our entire organization stronger.”MORE>>>
