Bakersfield native Kevin Harvick gives fans a sneak peek into the last NASCAR Cup Series race in California

Bakersfield native Kevin Harvick is set to compete in the Toyota/Save Mart 350 at the Sonoma Raceway this weekend. In an interview with Bakersfield Now, Harvick shared his thoughts on the upcoming race and his hopes for a victory.

Harvick, the 2014 Cup champion, has won two races this season and is currently ranked second in the standings. He credits his success to his experience and the support of his team.

“I’ve been in this sport for a long time, and I know what it takes to win,” Harvick said. “It’s all about having a great team behind you and being mentally tough.”

The Toyota/Save Mart 350 features 110 laps around the 2.52-mile course at the Sonoma Raceway. Many fans are eager to see Chase Elliott, who won the previous race at Circuit of the Americas, defend his title. Denny Hamlin, who won the Busch Light Pole at Sonoma, is also expected to be a strong contender.

The race is expected to be a nail-biter, with plenty of suspense and excitement for fans of NASCAR. For those unable to attend in person, the DoorDash 250 will be available to watch live online for free. The PennLive article provides details on where and when to tune in.

With the season coming to a close, this is the last NASCAR Cup Series event in California before the playoffs begin. Harvick is determined to leave his mark and secure his spot in the postseason.

“I’m excited to race in front of my hometown fans and give them a show,” Harvick said. “Hopefully, we can come out on top and continue our momentum heading into the playoffs.”

The race will be broadcast on FOX Sports, and fans can stay updated on the latest news and results through live updates on the network’s website.
