Harvick and the No. 29 Budweiser Chevrolet Team NHMS Advance

Harvick talks about racing at New Hampshire Motor Speedway:

What is the key to running well at New Hampshire Motor Speedway? “The hardest thing is just making your car turn in the middle of the corner and being able to have enough forward drive up off. It always seems like the New Hampshire race comes down to a track position strategy call on two tires or four tires toward the end of the race. Track position will play a big part, but getting your car to handle right will probably play an equal part.”

What do you like about racing at New Hampshire Motor Speedway? "I always look forward to going to New Hampshire. I like that type of track because it's flat, similar to the tracks out west where I started my racing career. There's a lot of braking. You have to really work on getting your car through the center of the corner and still have the forward drive you need up off the corner."

How has the track’s aging affected racing at New Hampshire Motor Speedway? “I think when they changed the race track it made the racing better. It gave you some more options and I think as the track has aged since they’ve done that, the biggest bumps on the track are going into Turn 3, so those have gotten a little bit worse. But all in all it hasn’t changed a whole lot.”
