Harvick might miss Mexico race

Kevin Harvick, scheduled to drive in this weekend’s Busch Series race in Mexico City, is still sore from his crash during the Gatorade Duels at Daytona. Harvick has played in pain the past two weeks, but his bruised ribs could preclude him from driving on the Mexican road course. If so, Brandon Miller will replace him.

“My ribs and chest are still really sore from my crash in Daytona, and I am not sure if I can shift the car through the turns in the road course," admitted Harvick. “If I cannot run this weekend, Brandon Miller will take over."

If Harvick is unable to drive this weekend in Mexico, it will mark the first race he has missed due to injury. This would be very disappointing for Harvick and crew chief Rick Viers, since they felt he they had a great chance in winning the inaugural Busch Series race in Mexico City.

“Kevin has always been pretty good at road course events," Viers said. “He will have a few road-course experts to deal with, but they always seem to have bad luck. He will also have Robby Gordon to deal with, but in the past couple of road course events, Kevin has been a thorn in Gordon’s side."
