Longtime NASCAR driver Kevin Harvick has announced that the 2023 NASCAR season will be his final one as a driver. This will be his 23rd season and final season racing on the track. Harvick won the 2014 Cup and is currently tied for ninth in wins with 60 career victories. He has also made 13 consecutive playoff appearances. Harvick is one of the best to race in the sport but cited knowing it was time to call it a career. With retirement incoming, the long-time racer will shift his focus full-time to his management company Kevin Harvick Inc. and raising his “family of racers”.

When announcing his decision to retire after the 2023 season, Kevin Harvick said the following: “It’s great to be able to go out on your own terms and plan it how you want it to go, but the biggest thing that sticks out to me is my kids. Being home with them and seeing the impact that you have with them when you are home, being able to be part of that daily process and be that father figure, it’s just time.”
Harvick will still be involved in racing, but in different ways, and now gets to spend more time with his family who also has a passion for the sport. We here at Def Pen Sports congratulate Harvick on his great career.
