In a classy display of friendship and team loyalty, Bristol Motor Speedway winner Kevin Harvick didn’t want to do a victory burnout by himself.
Rather, he wanted one of his best friends (not to mention his boss), Tony Stewart, to join in the postrace fun. The duo celebrated Harvick’s win and Stewart’s last race at Bristol.
Stewart will retire at the end of this season after 17 seasons in the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series.
Stewart, who had a rough day and finished 30th in the 40-car field, was a bit dumbfounded at first when Harvick asked him to join in the burnout celebration. But it didn’t take him long to get into the act, leaving fans who stuck around for the rain-delayed race a memory they won’t soon forget.
And Stewart won’t forget it soon, either. He especially relished the last 10 laps.
After the teammates did their donut dance, Harvick also talked about not only Sunday’s win but also how he feels his team should have even more wins this season.
