It was made official Friday that Kevin Harvick would be running with Stewart-Haas Racing in 2014 with a familiar sponsor in Budweiser. Also announced was a new number for the driver, that being the number four. The number hasn’t been used in a few years when Kasey Kahne ran a #4 Red Bull Toyota in 2011. Prior to that the number was synonymous with the now defunct Morgan-McClure Motorsports team, who’s #4 Kodak Film Chevrolet won three Daytona 500s in 1991, 1994, and 1995. The number was not one Harvick had much input in, but one that the organization wanted to tie the three teams together. Danica Patrick is in the #10, Tony Stewart is in the #14, and now Harvick will be in the #4. “I think the 4 is just something that’s with the 14.  The number was something that I don’t want to say didn’t really matter to me, but it’s something that you want to see consistent with the team and the things that they have going on.  That was a number that was available and seemed like it was a pretty common tie to the 14,” explained Harvick Friday to media members. Budweiser comes on board, but like the past few season, it will only be for select races. Other sponsors have not been announced for the team, although it’s speculated that Harvick’s other sponsors at Richard Childress Racing, might be moving over with him. “I have no idea.  That was the intriguing part about the SHR (Stewart-Haas Racing) piece of it was the car is going to be on the track and they said you go do your job and finish your year and race the cars as hard as you can and do a good job for Richard (Childress) and we will worry about the rest of it.  It’s kind of one of the biggest intriguing parts of the whole thing was the fact that you don’t have to worry about that part of it.  You cannot worry about chasing it you can drive the car, spend time with your family and hopefully they get it all worked out,” commented Harvick when asked about his other sponsors coming along. When they release the paint scheme, I’m hoping they stick with the red theme they have this year rather than going back to a black scheme. Details on that, other sponsors, and crew will be announced later in the year.
