Kevin Harvick, Driver of the No. 98 Hunt Brothers Pizza Ford Mustang

“The last time we had the No. 98 Hunt Brothers Ford Mustang out at Atlanta Motor Speedway, we won the 98th race of my career.  I’m looking forward to getting to the racetrack. I know the Hunt Brothers people are excited to see their car on the racetrack again – and I’m excited to drive it.”
