Maybe Keelan Harvick, the 7-year old son of driver Kevin Harvick added a little incentive to this weekends race at Michigan International Speedway. Last year Harvick won the Consumers Energy 400 and took Keelan for a ride to victory lane inside the race car. This year Keelan was ready to visit victory lane again, even bringing last years checker flag to the track. Harvick would grab the lead with 17 laps remaining in the race to fulfill this years promise. Kevin and Keelan would do a burnout down the front stretch to the fans approval with Keelan accepting this years checkered flag from flagman Rich Keator.

“They (the team) put a really fast race car on the track, and we were able to capitalize on it, so that’s always fun.”
