Winning the Daytona 500 is something that most drivers would love to have on their resume, but few actually do. Kevin's already won, beating Mark Martin to the line in 2007. I watched last Saturday's Bud Shootout and frankly found my jaw hanging down around the area that my shoe laces usually occupy. That's how good this young man is, and yes, I can call him a young man, because I was wearing long pants when Kevin Harvick was still in diapers.
On Sunday, NASCAR kicks off a brand new season, and I'm guessing that Kevin Harvick will be right up there with the leaders at the end of the race. Harvick showed that basic 'no fear' attitude on Saturday, charging to the front and leading the only lap that really matters: The last lap.
Do I think Kevin Harvick can do it again, just like he did in the Bud Shootout? Yep. You betcha. Please, don't mortage your house or bet your car on this, but I'm thinking we'll get to see some more spectacular burnouts when Kevin Harvick wins the 2009 Daytona 500.
