Last week, Kevin Harvick was frustrated and angry. But after cruising to his third consecutive win of the 2018 season, he proved he?s one of NASCAR?s best trolls.
Following his win two weekends ago at Las Vegas Motor Speedway, the sport penalized Harvick and his No. 4 Ford team for violations in the rear windshield area. In response, he slammed NASCAR and blamed social media for the penalty, which he believes was a major contributing factor since fans started buzzing about his window online after he won.
So when Harvick crossed the finish line Sunday at ISM Raceway outside of Phoenix, one of the first things he did was climb on the car and repeatedly smack his rear windshield.
?For all the supporters out there ? and all you haters ? I see you,? Harvick clapped back after the race.
This move was straight out of Kyle Busch?s playbook, as he?s arguably the sport?s best troll. Busch ? who chased Harvick on Sunday and finished second ? regularly takes on his haters and boos from the crowd, and it looks like Harvick found a hilarious way to follow suit.
Harvick?s consecutive victories were in three of only four races this season, and at 42 years old, he?s dominating while the sport has been pushing the narrative of its younger drivers. His first win of the year was at Atlanta Motor Speedway in February.
