It’s official: Kevin Harvick will drive for Stewart-Hass Racing in 2014. We also now know the sponsor of the car and the number as well. Harvick will pilot the No. 4 Chevrolet and take Budweiser with him to be the primary sponsor for 20 races next season. The news of this story broke late last season as Harvick hinted he didn’t want to re-sign with Richard Childress Racing after his contract was up at the end of the 2013 NASCAR Sprint Cup Series season. Harvick said today that after 12-13 years of having the same desk it was time for a new venue. He was brought up very quickly in 2001 after being the replacement for Dale Earnhardt. Harvick was the primary Busch Grand National Series driver for RCR and the logical choice to bring up. He won in just his third start at Atlanta in a very emotional victory. Harvick has made 448 career Cup starts, all coming with RCR. He’s won 21 times with 197 top 10 finishes and five poles. He has also driven for RCR in the Nationwide and Camping World Truck Series’. He won 39 times with 215 top 10′s in 295 Nationwide Series starts and won the championship in both 2001 and 2006. Harvick also has 14 wins in Truck action in 121 career starts. I wrote earlier this year why the real reason Harvick was leaving RCR. Why stay when he’s going to start playing second fiddle to Richard Childress’ two fast-rising grandsons? Now Harvick can take his talents to SHR with funding at have a really good shot at winning his first Sprint Cup title. For those wondering why the No. 4, Stewart has always wanted to bring that number to the Cup Series. That was one of his go kart numbers when he grew up racing in Indiana and he wanted to have No. 4 on his team. Harvick happily took the number. Also, questions will arise about current SHR driver Ryan Newman on his part of the team. Stewart immediately answered that question saying he will have a three-car team in 2014 with himself, Danica Patrick and Harvick. That means Newman will be left searching for a ride.   Eric Smith is the Lead Motorsports Writer for Race Review Online.
