Formula 1 World Champion Max Verstappen has presented retiring
NASCAR great Kevin Harvick a signed, race-worn helmet. Harvick
called time on a Hall of Fame-worthy career in the Cup Series in
the season finale in Phoenix, Arizona over the weekend, banking a
record 21st consecutive top 10 finish at the track. The 2014 Cup
champion, a winner of 60 races, started his career in 2001 as the
replacement for Dale Earnhardt Sr, who was killed on the last lap
of the Daytona 500, winning his first race in just his third start
in an iconic battle in Atlanta with Earnhardt’s great rival, Jeff
Gordon. Since his debut, there have been 827 Cup races, with
Harvick competing in 826 of them, only missing a 2002 race when
NASCAR ‘parked’ him for intentionally spinning out another driver
in the supporting Truck series race. Both Harvick’s Stewart Haas
Racing team and Verstappen Red Bull squad enjoy a mutual sponsor,
Mobil 1, with a signed Verstappen helmet being presented to
Harvick, although it was son Keelan who got to wear the gift.
Harvick was unable to add a second Cup crown to his CV in his
send-off race, having already been eliminated from the Playoffs,
with Team Penske’s Ryan Blaney finishing second in the race to
claim a first title of his own. 1721233916726546488 From one Mobil
1 champion to another. @mobil1racing gifted @KevinHarvick a
race-worn @Max33Verstappen helmet as a retirement gift. #4EVER — Stewart-Haas Racing (@StewartHaasRcng)
