It will be Harvick’s first race at the half-mile track in a NASCAR series.

The Stewart-Haas Racing driver, who won the 1998 K&N West title, has claimed victory in his last two starts in the series. He won last July at Sonoma Raceway driving for Jerry Pitts.

Before that his last start and win was in 2007 at Iowa Speedway.

He has seven wins in the series.
