Happy Harvick struck again
Happy Harvick struck again. Another bump on track, and another awesomely entertaining post-race interview.
Racing Ty Dillon during the truck race at Martinsville this afternoon, Harvick was spun by the grandson of Richard Childress, causing a wreck that affected a handful of others drivers’ race.
That was only the start of the fireworks, as Harvick chased down Dillon, bumping into him on track. On top of that, he rolled into Dillon's pit box while his crew was coming out to service the Childress machine.
Apparently there was even a sledgehammer thrown...
After the race, Dillon said things along the lines of "I looked up to him," "he should have stuck around to talk."
Harvick on the other hand straight up said "Punk ass kids (are the reason) why I am leaving RCR."
Way to go Harvick. I mean it though. This is what stock car racing is missing these days, personality. Period.
Rumors are floating around that Harvick will be pulled out of the #29 ride for his actions and comments against both the RCR team, and the attack on the Childress family.
It's mainly Twitter banter, but really, the stars are aligned for the early swap. It's not unheard of a guy moving to his new team before the season is out. I mean, Mark Martin is driving the 14...forgive me Mark, but you aren't exactly a contender each week. So, Harvick can finish out the season driving Smoke's car...
That leaves the 29 wide open. Well, there is this Dillon kid who still hasn't gotten much Cup seat time. Unfortunately that might be looked at Dillon having the ride "fed to him on a spoon."
Harvick. I agree, you got taken out by a rich kid. Cut your losses and see if Smoke will take you earlier than planned.
