Short-track racing next year could look completely different, at least according to Kevin Harvick. This retired NASCAR driver engaged in a conversation on the Dale Jr. Download, discussing the short track system. Although he has decided to end his career, Harvick has emphasized many times so far that this will not mean that he will completely leave NASCAR.
Harvick will join the FOX Sports broadcast next season, and in addition, he plans to be involved in the daily events of the NASCAR scene. He expressed optimism about NASCAR fans and drivers possibly seeing a brighter future ahead.
“I think they’re going to take a big swing at it, I think they’re going to take a big swing at it at the Phoenix test and really try to wrangle the short track system back into where it needs to be. The short track package.
”- Harvick said.
Kevin Harvick talks about tires
Harvick did not forget to mention the role of tires in the whole story. Kevin hopes that NASCAR executives will make certain moves and make everyone happy. The happiest would certainly be the drivers, who would feel the greatest benefits.
However, let's wait and see what the plans are. “Well, I think that the tire’s definitely involved in a lot of it. But I think a lot of times what has happened is um, we go softer on the tire and the tire goes faster and lasts longer.
So then it confuses everybody. ‘Okay we made the tire softer, we put more heat in the tire, but the tire went further. And the tire went faster, last longer, and fell off less. So I think everybody is wanting to go back to the drawing board and wanting to take bigger swings at it.
And I think they need to take bigger swings at it. … I just don’t know if there’s enough power in the racecar”. - Kevin Harvick concluded. Source: on3.com
