Kevin Harvick, a two-time NASCAR Nationwide Series champion and winner of 76
races in NASCAR's top three touring divisions, has signed with JR Motorsports
and will compete in a minimum of 12 Nationwide Series races in 2014.
Brothers Pizza, the nation’s largest brand of made-to-order pizza in the
convenience store industry, will be the primary sponsor on Harvick’s Chevrolet
for four races.
While Harvick’s Nationwide Series schedule for 2014 is still being
finalized, the races in which Hunt Brothers Pizza will serve as primary sponsor
have been set. The Hunt Brothers Pizza scheme will be featured at Bristol Motor
Speedway, Charlotte Motor Speedway, and both races at Texas Motor
Harvick will drive JR Motorsports’ No. 5 Chevrolet – a full-season car
traditionally shared by multiple drivers on select-race schedules. The driver
line-up for that car beyond Harvick is still being determined.
“This is pretty cool to have Kevin a part of our team,” said owner Dale
Earnhardt Jr. “I’ve known him for a long time. He’s an incredible racer. He
will be a huge asset to JR Motorsports, our sponsors and our fans. I’m grateful
that he wants to drive our cars, and I’m grateful that Hunt Brothers Pizza is
committed to Kevin and our race program. We’re happy to have them.”
