Video: Kevin Harvick Has Extremely Rough Start to 2021 Busch Clash

Kevin Harvick’s 2020 NASCAR Cup Series season ended in heartbreaking fashion. He missed the Championship 4, despite winning nine races on the season. Tuesday night in the NASCAR Cup Series Busch Clash exhibition event, Harvick looked to get 2021 off on the right foot.

And he took two spins before the field reached the scheduled lap 15 caution in the 35-lap event.

The first spin came on lap three, as Harvick simply slipped in the crazy amount of dirt that had been kicked onto the track surface in the backstretch chicane.

However, Harvick got through that spin basically unscathed. But when race leader Ryan Blaney missed the first turn on a lap 10 restart, Harvick had nowhere to go when the field got pinched up behind the No. 12 car and spun it into the grass again.

Harvick is back on track, has minimal damage and has not lost a lap and there are still 20 laps left in the Busch Clash for the driver of the No. 4 car to attempt a comeback rally.
