Celebrity Interviews

NASCAR Champ Kevin Harvick on Confederate Flag, Groupies & Earning $5-6 MILLION

The 2014 NASCAR Sprint Cup Champion, Kevin Harvick, stopped by Sway in the Morning for a very informative and entertaining interview!

Starting our chat strong, Kevin talks about being from the West Coast, listening to NWA and being a fan of Eazy E. Also telling us about the “turn-up” in NASCAR — which consists of a “beer-bath.” In fact, last year when he won the Sprint Cup, his team celebrated with 80-cases of beer!

While in-studio he also reveals that winning a championship means earning $5-6 MILLION. But it doesn’t all go to him; the wealth is spread across his team of 200-300 peeps.

Just like in every sport, there are groupies. But Kevin tells us he doesn’t indulge since he’s married, but its funny watching the “helmet lickers” (what they call groupies) get the attention of his fellow-racers.

In a sensitive topic about the Confederate Flag, Harvick opens up about working in a community where the flag isn’t extinct yet.

Watch above for all this and more.
