With an exhilarating series race win at New Hampshire Motor Speedway this past weekend, Kevin Harvick again demonstrated why he — along with Kyle Busch and Martin Truex Jr. — is among one of the most dominant racers in the NASCAR Cup Series.
Clearly showing no signs of slowing down, the 42-year-old Stewart-Haas Racing driver is gearing up for more race wins as the Cup Series season progresses. That being said, he’s not afraid to look a little bit further into the future and mull over his post-racing career options once retirement rears its head. And, as he revealed on a recent segment of NASCAR on Fox’s “Pit Stop with Motte,” he has quite the ambitious game plan going forward.
“Dear NASCAR, when I retire, I want to be in charge,” said Harvick, whose response was met with laughter from host Daryl Motte.
“To do what though?” host Daryl Motte followed up.
“I want to run the whole thing,” Harvick responded.
Now, obviously, Harvick isn’t in any serious talks to take over NASCAR’s reins anytime soon, but when asked by Motte if he had any “quick fixes” for NASCAR, he couldn’t help but flash a smirk before his response.
“We’d have a long list of things that would probably not make a lot of people happy,” he said.
As you can tell from the brief interview clip, this was just one of the more lighthearted exchanges regarding the current state of NASCAR, which has been in jeopardy for quite some time now.
While both drivers and fans alike can agree that there are plenty of NASCAR facets that need tweaking, Harvick appears to be predominantly poised to continue his victory lane appearances and rack up Cup race win after Cup race win.
