Kevin Harvick, Inc. (KHI) has made an exciting announcement, revealing its plans to return to full-time competition in 2024. The renowned racing organization, founded by NASCAR Cup Series champion Kevin Harvick, will participate in Super Late Model and Late Model Stock events throughout the year.
Kevin Harvick expressed enthusiasm about the decision, stating, “With KHI Management representing drivers with all levels of experience, it felt like a good opportunity to jump back into full-time competition. We love to compete, and it brings all aspects of our business together on the track.”
One of the key drivers spearheading KHI’s return is Brent Crews, set to contend for the zMAX CARS Tour Late Model Stock championship. Crews, the pilot of the No. 29 Mobil1 Toyota Camry entry, brings an impressive racing resume, having claimed the Trans Am Series’ TA2 championship in 2023. His successes extend to the ARCA Menards Series, where he secured a victory at the Illinois State Fairgrounds during the 2023 season.
In addition to Crews, KHI will field a No. 62 Late Model Stock entry, featuring a dynamic lineup of drivers. This includes NASCAR Cup Series competitor Josh Berry, NASCAR Craftsman Truck Series driver Layne Riggs, 2023 ARCA Menards Series East champion William Sawalich, and Landen Lewis.
The team’s plans also extend to Super Late Models, with select events scheduled for the 2024 season. Berry, Sawalich, and Lewis are set to compete in these high-powered events, joined by Berry’s NASCAR Cup Series teammate at Stewart-Haas Racing, Ryan Preece.
