KANNAPOLIS, N.C. – Kevin Harvick will have a new look for Saturday night’s Federated Auto Parts 400 NASCAR Cup Series race at Richmond (Va.) Raceway.

The No. 4 Ford Mustang for Stewart-Haas Racing will be sponsored by Hunt Brothers Pizza and Fields, two longtime supporters of Harvick.

Hunt Brothers Pizza has partnered with Harvick in NASCAR for 11 years. The company last visited victory lane with the 2014 NASCAR Cup Series champion when he won the 2018 NASCAR Xfinity Series race at Atlanta Motor Speedway in Hampton, Ga.

Harvick has also won NASCAR Gander RV & Outdoors Truck Series races with Hunt Brothers Pizza as the primary sponsor at Texas Motor Speedway in Fort Worth and at Bristol (Tenn.) Motor Speedway, both in 2011.

The company also sponsored him in the non-points NASCAR All-Star Race in 2014 and 2015 at Charlotte (N.C.) Motor Speedway. Harvick finished second in both races.

For 2019, Hunt Brothers Pizza moved up to the Cup Series for three races and, in 2020, is on Harvick’s car five times, including this week’s race at Richmond and the upcoming AAA Texas 500 on Oct. 25 at Texas.

Fields has sponsored Harvick in Xfinity Series races in August 2017 at Watkins Glen (N.Y.) Int’l, where he finished sixth, and in June 2018 at Michigan Int’l Speedway in Brooklyn, where he scored an eighth-place result.

Harvick took Fields to victory lane in 2017 at Sonoma (Calif.) Raceway in a NASCAR K&N Pro Series West race.

Harvick heads to Richmond’s three-quarter-mile oval, where he has been stellar over the years, fresh off a win in the Cook Out Southern 500 last weekend at Darlington (S.C.) Raceway. He’ll also start on the pole for Saturday’s Federated Auto Parts 400.

He has three wins, three poles, 15 top-five finishes, 25 top 10s and has led a total of 1,139 laps in his 38 career NASCAR Cup Series starts at Richmond.
