CHARLOTTE, N.C. — Kevin Harvick is adding two road course races to his NASCAR schedule with entries in the K&N Pro Series West at Sonoma Raceway and the NASCAR XFINITY Series at Watkins Glen Int’l.

Joining Harvick for both events is new KHI Management sponsor FIELDS, who built two Kevin Harvick Foundation Parks in recent years.

Harvick’s June 24 NASCAR K&N Pro Series West entry at Sonoma with Jefferson Pitts Racing marks his 23rd series start. In 22 appearances, Harvick has six wins, 13 top-five and 16 top-10 finishes, in addition to seven pole positions. In 1998, his only full-time K&N Pro Series West season, the Bakersfield, Calif., native won five of the 14 events he entered. His last series start came at Iowa Speedway in 2007.

The Aug. 5 XFINITY Series race at Watkins Glen Int’l brings Harvick’s series total behind the wheel of the No. 41 Stewart-Haas Racing Ford to six this year. After competing in the Atlanta and Texas events earlier this year, the balance of his 2017 NXS schedule includes Charlotte, Kentucky, Watkins Glen and Darlington.

“As a California kid, I learned to race on the West Coast and began to define myself as a driver in the NASCAR K&N Pro Series West,” Harvick said. “So, the Sonoma race represents a fun return to my roots. I can’t thank FIELDS enough for supporting me in my ‘throwback’ trip, as well as my NASCAR XFINITY Series visit to Watkins Glen.”
