But these last few races would sure be special for him before he bids adieu to the sport after the season. We really hope the legend relishes each and every last moment of his in the sport as a driver. Fortunately, in the recent All-Star Race, we saw one of those moments unfold.

The All-Star Race saw the return of Cup Series action to North Wilkesboro after a long hiatus. While Harvick finished 18th, the All-Star race proved to be a successful operation. But at the same time, it highlighted the shortcomings of the Next Gen cars. But this was something that let the motor sporting world see Harvick’s 5-year-old daughter Piper be a part of an adorable moment.

Harvick is one of the veteran drivers who have seen it all. The 2014 Cup Series winner has previously talked about his feelings about a grand event like the All-Star race at an iconic venue like North Wilkesboro. Returning to his favorite #29 Ford, after almost a decade, must feel amazing to him.

In a recent tweet, radio channel SiriusXM producer Davey Segal shares one of the most heart-touching instances from the weekend. A video of Piper Harvick helping out Kevin’s crew as they push out the car from the track, and the duo of DeLana and Kevin watch on.

Kevin Harvick has already announced that he will be retiring at the end of this season. This surely makes his return to the #29, the charter with which he drove in his debut season, replacing the great Dale Earnhardt after his death, special.

The Harvick household is heavily invested in the racing industry. Their son Keelan is already a karting champion in the younger age groups in the United States. In light of this, it seems the veteran, who has been inducted into NASCAR’s 75 greatest drivers list, may already have a successor in NASCAR,

The video by Segal has gone viral on Twitter and fans have gathered to voice their thoughts. Some have hinted about how Harvick has inevitably gotten their kids into racing. The Stewart-Haas Racing driver has imbued the values of racing into his kids.

A certain fan tweets “This is what makes NASCAR such a family sport. Seeing her, Keelan, Owen, Brexton, Cash etc around the pits.” Brexton Busch, son of veteran and legend Kyle Busch, is one of the upcoming stars in the racing scene.

“There is something about pushing the car with the team that feels so good.”
