The pressure is on Santa Claus now that Keelan Harvick revealed Saturday night what he wants for Christmas this year.

“A race car,” the younger son of 2014 Sprint Cup champ Kevin Harvick and wife DeLana said during the first annual Christmas tree lighting ceremony at the NASCAR Hall of Fame.

“We can make it here in about 10 minutes and be amongst the people,” Harvick told Fox 46 TV. “We had a good time tonight, and Keelan, we lit the tree, didn’t we?”

The Hall’s tree is a towering 33 feet, decked with all types of digital lights and ornaments. In addition, the first 2,500 attendees to the inaugural event received a Santa hat, which Keelan proudly wore through the entire festivities.

“This is a family affair,” Hall of Fame executive director Winston Kelly told Fox 46. “We’re just so excited to have the community out here and to just kick off Holidays at the Hall here at the NASCAR Hall of Fame.”

Adding additional flavor to “Holidays at the Hall” festivities is an outdoor ice skating rink in the Hall of Fame Plaza that will be open through Jan. 3.

Other Holidays at the Hall activities still to come include Breakfast With Santa on Dec. 5 and Dec. 19, Santa’s Sleepover (Dec. 18) and Undeck the Hall (Dec. 26).

There also will be a series of holiday-themed movies that will be shown in the Hall’s High Octane Theater through Dec. 27, including “Elf” (Dec. 5-6), an animated version of “A Christmas Carol” (Dec. 12-13), “Polar Express” (Dec. 19-20) and “Frozen” (Dec. 26-27).
