Harvick is quoted as saying, “We were on the little razor, the electric razor and he was going up the hill. And it wouldn’t go up the hill and he was kicking his feet. So we went to the motorcycle shop.”

Keelan Harvick also recently made his karting debut early this year, which Harvick senior shared via his Twitter handle as well. Having turned eight years old, Keelan is now in a whole new world of discovering driving and the fun that comes along with it!

The Stewart-Haas No.4 continued and said, “And then we left and I was not home when the jumps were built. So the jumps got built and the next thing I see is a video of his jumping and I was like, it was ‘this is your fault’.”

“He likes it. Yeah, so his favorite days are the mudder days,” concluded Harvick.
