Recently, Keelan Harvick racked up yet another victory in the Super Kart USA Winter Series. Kevin Harvick’s son has been in fine form in the karting scene and is steadily rising up the ranks. At the same time, Brexton Busch, son of Kyle Busch, is also on a similar trajectory.

Both Keelan and Brexton have been in red hot form lately, and their results prove it. While the two have not faced each other because they are currently racing in different series, there may soon come a time where they may eventually face-off against each other.

Brexton has been incredible in the Beginner Box Stock Car Series. The youngster has notched up a number of wins so far and is steadily gaining more confidence and experience. Meanwhile, Keelan Harvick followed up last night’s win with yet another one.

What about Kyle Busch and Kevin Harvick?

Currently, the two drivers are focusing their efforts on the 2021 Cup Series season preparation. Both of them have a point to prove, especially after last season when both missed out on the title. Busch almost humiliated himself when he failed to notch up a win until the third-to-last race at Texas.

Considering that he was the defending champion, his performance was quite pathetic. As a result, the Joe Gibbs Racing driver will be eager for redemption in 2021.

Meanwhile, Kevin Harvick reflected on a season of what could have been. The man racked up an impressive nine race wins in the season and looked like a favorite for the 2020 Cup Series title. Unfortunately, his failure to win at the right place at the right time came back to bite him hard.

This is why the Joe Gibbs Racing driver and the Stewart-Haas Racing driver enter the season with nothing to lose. Hopefully, for their sakes, they are able to put up a better fight for the new season.
