2014 NASCAR Cup Series champion Kevin Harvick marked his retirement from full-time racing this season. He has confirmed that he won’t return to the top tier anymore, but will potentially make selected Xfinity and Truck Series starts. The Stewart Haas Racing legend at the moment like many focussed on his son Keelan Harvick’s future and his upcoming Fox broadcasting gig.
Unlike many retired NASCAR drivers who often take some time off from the sport once they retire, Harvick has been engaging with fans via social media, just like he has been in all the post-seasons before getting ready to drive next year. He recently was part of a hilarious back-and-forth with a fan on X over a post.
Harvick, replying to a post about the 2024 Daytona 500 by ex-Crew Chief Larry McReynolds asked fans about who they think will win the event. A fan with the username Will responded to a post made by the racing legend made a hilarious comment.
Whoever crosses the line first. But you should update your bio, no longer a NASCAR “driver.”
A twitter smart ass… https://t.co/l38lDSPjbJ— Kevin Harvick (@KevinHarvick) December 5, 2023
Harvick had an epic comeback to the post made and was quick to call him ‘A Twitter smart a**.’ The Ford drivers’ post prompted some hilarious comments and Will in response gave his prediction that Ross Chastain of Trackhouse Racing would win the event. Responding to the prediction Harvick wrote: “There we go just a good simple answer”
The 2024 Daytona 500 will potentially be the first race without a legacy driver
The grandstand’s upcoming Florida beach extravaganza has already been sold out and the fans are eagerly waiting to be part of the event. But they might witness the first race ever without a legacy driver on the track.
Kevin Harvick was the last driver who has been racing in the Cup series to have debuted in the era where the champions were decided based on who got the most points and not the playoff format that started in 2004. Harvick and Kurt Busch were the last of their breed and both retired in 2024.
But there is still hope and it has to do with seven-time Cup champion Jimmie Jhonson. If he is to make his Toyota debut on the Daytona 500 with his team Legacy MC, as part of his part-time 2024 Cup schedule, there will be a legacy driver on the track.
