The rumor-mongering has finally come to an end after Stewart-Haas Racing announced that NASCAR driver Kevin Harvick has been signed to a long-term contract extension. Details of the deal were not released. Harvick, 40, won the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series championship in 2014, and is in his third year with the team co-owned by Tony Stewart and Gene Haas.
The team is switching manufacturers from Chevrolet to Ford in 2017 – Harvick has made 550 starts in NASCAR’s top division, all in Chevrolets.
