Harvick not concerned about Daytona engine failure From Kevin Harvick's media availability Friday at Phoenix:
DID YOU GUYS FIGURE OUT WHAT HAPPENED TO THE ENGINE? "Yes."
WHAT HAPPENED? "It broke. (laughter)"
ANY MORE DETAILS? "Yes, not that I'm going to tell you but they have a good idea. They called me Monday morning and told me what had happened and I feel like they have a good direction to fix it."
WAS IT AN ISOLATED INCIDENT OR SOMETHING? "Both of them."
ARE YOU WORRIED ABOUT GOING FORWARD? "No, I don't think it's something to worry about. I think it's just something we have to make an adjustment on. I think the No. 29 and No. 31 both had the same problem." Chevy PR
Kevin Harvick's and Jeff Burton's early Daytona departures were due to scuffed pistons in the engine. The Earnhardt Childress Racing engine department worked overtime this week to recreate the overheating situation that occurred because the current pistons were not designed to the same degree as the block.
