Budweiser and Jimmy Johns to follow Harvick to SHRUPDATE #2 This rumor is upgraded to 'fact' today. NASCAR team owner Richard Childress confirmed what driver Kevin Harvick would not since November 2012. Harvick will leave Childress, where he has been since his first Cup race in 2001, and drive for friend and team owner Tony Stewart at Stewart-Haas Racing in 2014.
Childress, who spoke Monday night at NASCAR's Sprint Cup Media Tour, talked about knowing about Harvick's plans last year before the race at Phoenix International Raceway -- a race Harvick would win to snap a 44-race winless streak.
"We had a meeting and he told me his plans and we discussed what we were going to do in '13," Childress said Monday. "He'll do well over there at Stewart-Haas, and RCR will keep going and moving forward.
"I think him and Tony will have a good relationship."
12/04/12 Kevin Harvick won't confirm that he will drive for Stewart-Haas Racing in 2014, but he did confirm last week in Las Vegas that he is preparing for his departure from Richard Childress Racing after next season. Harvick said he already has talked to Matt Kenseth about how to handle such a situation - Harvick is expected to run his final season for RCR next year, and all signs point to him driving for Tony Stewart beginning in 2014. Harvick has not denied reports that he will move to Stewart's team starting in 2014, and team owner Richard Childress has already acknowledged that Harvick will be moving on. zzzz
"You look at a lot of situations that are around you that you can kind of take advice from people and things and just try to do the best that you can," Harvick said at the Sprint Cup Awards banquet in Las Vegas last week. Everybody wants to know what's going on or what's going to happen or how it is going to work and we want to tell everybody, & but we're just not in a position. Sporting News
11/16/12 When Kevin Harvick leaves Richard Childress Racing at the end of the 2013 NASCAR Sprint Cup Series season, he will take major sponsors Budweiser and Jimmy Johns along with him. Reports surfaced last week that Harvick will bolt RCR at the conclusion of his current contract to race full-time for Stewart Haas Racing in 2014. Multiple sources speaking on the condition of anonymity say that when the move comes, it will also include the sponsors that backed the #29 team in a combined 26 races this season; 20 for Budweiser and six for Jimmy John's.
