Hey bartender! Can I get another Bud?Share
Kevin Harvick probably won’t receive probation for his most recent stunt in Michigan on Tuesday.
This time the driver of the No. 29 Budweiser Chevrolet served as a Budweiser bartender at Weber’s Inn in Ann Arbor, Mich., during a special “Happy Hour” in support of MIS’ June 19 Heluva Good! Sour Cream Dips 400.
“I had a great time today,” Harvick said. “I always enjoy coming to Michigan – to drive and for appearances like this. There are great race fans in Michigan, and they always enjoy a good time and good race.”
Harvick met with members of the media and then participated in a question and answer session with fans, before serving up Budweiser products as a guest bartender.
The driver is on NASCAR probation for a clash with fellow driver Kyle Busch during a NASCAR Sprint Cup event at Darlington Raceway. That probation ends June 15, just in time for the Father’s Day race at Michigan.
And many fans are excited for it.
“I can’t wait until the race at MIS,” Jenni King of Clinton, Mich., said. “Kevin Harvick is such a great driver and he gives his all in everything he does. He’s so passionate about racing and it shows. Harvick will be off probation, so it should be an exciting race!”
About 150 fans attended the event – many of them MIS ticket holders; all of them Harvick fans. Everyone received a commemorative T-shirt counting down the probation period. The shirt had a graphic of Harvick and Busch with their arms around each other – with “Grab Some Buds” emblazoned on the front and ‘Have at it, boys,’ on the back of the T-shirt.
Nestled in the lush Irish Hills of Southeastern Michigan, Michigan International Speedway is a Great Escape, a venerable NASCAR national park where race fans and sports fans can get away and enjoy the very best in racing and camaraderie. It’s the fun of NASCAR and the thrill of a great time for guests and drivers alike.
