HAMPTON, Ga. – Kevin Harvick, who has spent his entire Sprint Cup career driving a Chevrolet, says this week's announcement that Stewart-Haas Racing is moving to Ford won't force him to look for a new team.
Harvick and SHR co-owner Tony Stewart each won championships for the team driving Chevrolets. The team's move to Ford in 2017 set up a potentially awkward final 2016 season with Chevrolet and led to questions about how Harvick would react.
The 2014 Cup champion addressed the situation on Friday, saying during practice at Atlanta Motor Speedway his plan is to "follow along with what your organization thinks is best."
Harvick says the move does not make him a free agent.
SHR will get its engines from Roush Yates, instead of Hendrick Motorsports.
