In recent years, Keelan has taken a couple of rides in his father’s Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series cars during victory celebrations. And it looks like he will be ready to get his own ride sooner than expected.
Watch: Keelan’s training video from last year
Last year, we found out that Kevin and Delana Harvick’s seven-year-old son has a keen interest in racing. After, Harvick’s wife posted a video on Twitter of Keelan getting some laps around the go-kart track. Now it looks like the training has paid off well and Jr Harvick is ready to race on the track.
