KHI is currently serves as a sports marketing & celebrity marketing giant, but that was not its initial vision. The company has a history of fielding cars in the NASCAR Cup and Truck Series races since its inception in 2002. So they were a full-time operating racing company. Unfortunately, back in 2011, they decided to close the curtains on the project and announced their merger with Richard Childress Racing. Since then, they’ve expanded their project outside the racetracks, managing athletes as a marketing agency.

However, the recent return of FHI as a racing team has fueled new hopes and aspirations as they will feature in Late and Super Late Model events for 2024. No wonder, this has got Harvick’s wife all hyped up for the KHI’s return, terming it a new beginning.
