NASCAR Sprint Cup Series STP 400
April 16, 2013 - Kansas Speedway
Kevin Harvick, No. 29
Kevin Harvick will pilot chassis No. 373 from the Richard Childress Racing NASCAR Sprint Cup Series stable in the STP 400. The No. 29 team utilized this Chevrolet once during the 2012 season, where Harvick picked up an eighth-place finish in May at Charlotte Motor Speedway. The last time Harvick and the No. 29 Rheem crew competed in the STP 400 at Kansas Speedway, they captured a sixth-place finish after running out of fuel under green-flag conditions and battling a tight handling car throughout the race.
I don't remember exactly how we ran last year, but anytime you see new pavement as a driver you kind of cringe. They obviously did a great job repaving the track, but sometimes a great job doesn't result in a great race. I remember the race being fairly good last year for a newly paved race track. It will be interesting to see how much grip the pavement has lost when we go back to race there this year because they have such rough winters and you have no idea how the track will react. As the race track ages, I think the racing will get better. With the surface being fairly new a lot of strategy, two tires or no tires, will be a factor in order to keep track position. - Kevin Harvick
