The tributes just continue to roll in for Kevin Harvick, who will retire from NASCAR Cup Series competition at the end of the 2023 season. On Monday, Stewart-Haas Racing revealed that Harvick will pilot a special throwback paint scheme in this weekend’s event, which will be named the 4Eever 400 presented by Mobil 1, at Homestead-Miami Speedway.
The red and white Budweiser scheme will throw it back to the 2014 season, where Harvick and SHR had a magical campaign that was capped off with the NASCAR Cup Series championship at the 1.5-mile speedway in Florida.

Harvick, who is looking for his first win of the 2023 NASCAR Cup Series season, won an impressive five races, including the season finale during that magical 2014 run.
The driver amassed an amazing 11 top-two finishes that season as he defeated Ryan Newman for the NASCAR Cup Series title in the closing laps at Homestead that season.
2014 was the first year for Harvick in the No. 4 car for Stewart-Haas Racing. Of the legendary driver’s 60-career NASCAR Cup Series wins, 37 of them have come for the race team co-owned by Tony Stewart and Gene Haas.
Harvick, 47, will look to add at least one more trophy to the mantle before hanging up his helmet at season’s end, but it would truly be special if he could win in the 2014 paint scheme at Homestead.
