Today is a big day for Kevin Harvick.

The 2014 Sprint Cup champ might want to put a zero next to the 4 on his Stewart-Haas Racing Chevrolet, as he turns the big 4-0 today.

That’s right, Harvick is the latest NASCAR driver to turn 40. He joins an exclusive club that includes Greg Biffle (turns 46 on Dec. 23), Tony Stewart (44), the recently retired Jeff Gordon (44), Dale Earnhardt Jr. (41) and Jimmie Johnson (40).

As of this writing, Harvick hasn’t acknowledged hitting the age milestone on Twitter, but his wife, team and Todd Bodine made sure they marked it.

Don’t let hitting 40 get you down, Kevin. It’s not all downhill from there.

Instead, remember: 40 is the new 30!

Harvick isn’t the only NASCAR notable to be celebrating a birthday Tuesday. Others include:

* Fellow Sprint Cup driver Ryan Newman (38 years old).

* Kerry Earnhardt (48).

* Matt Kenseth crew chief Jason Ratcliff (48).
