Kevin Harvick has won 35 NASCAR Cup Series races, two NASCAR Xfinity Series championships, one Cup Series title, and a K&N Pro Series West title. In his only West Series race in Sonoma, he won.

He can repeat that feat in June.

Harvick, a driver for Stewart-Haas Racing in the NASCAR Monster Energy Cup Series, will enter the K&N Pro Series West race at Sonoma Raceway.

“(I’m) going to be the old guy that shows up,” Harvick, said on his Sirius XM Radio show, “Happy Hours”. “I have fun when I go do those events. You’d love to win and you want to go out and do that obviously to be competitive, but it’s really, it’s just a series that gave me several breaks and several opportunities to showcase what I did as a kid.”

Harvick won the K&N Pro Series West championship in 1998. He won five races that year, the last coming at Infineon Raceway in Sonoma. He also won races at Auto Club Speedway and Las Vegas Motor Speedway. The last time he raced in the K&N Pro Series was in 2007 at Iowa Speedway. He won that race, which included a field of drivers from the K&N Pro Series West and East.

“It's hard for young kids to come up,” Harvick said. “So, if we can go out there and have fun and bring the West Series some exposure and bring some attention to that, that would really be my main goal; to bring some attention to the race, the competitors, all the people that are a part of that series.”

Harvick won seven K&N Pro Series West races in his career. He last raced full time in the K&N Pro Series in 1998. He is one of four NASCAR drivers to win a championship in the three national touring series, the Cup Series, Xfinity Series, and Camping World Truck Series.

He holds the NASCAR Cup Series record for wins at Phoenix International Raceway with eight. He has won 46 Xfinity Series races, the third most of any driver.

After six races, Harvick is 10th in the Monster Energy Cup Series standings. He is 114 points behind Kyle Larson, the Cup Series leader. In his 17-year career in the Cup Series, he has started 580 races. He has 286 top-10 finishes and 19 poles in his Cup Series career.
