Did Josh Jones split the uprights on Friday night?

BRISTOL, Tenn. -- Reigning Sprint Cup Series champion Kevin Harvick and Kevin Harvick Inc. Management Director of Business Development Josh Jones like to give each other a hard time. Sometimes they even team up for pranks -- DeLana probably still isn’t over these creepy photos yet -- and sometimes, when it all comes together, we get to laugh and good things happen for the Western Carolina University football team. As you may recall, Harvick and Jones -- a former place kicker for the Catamounts -- made a bet back in February that Jones couldn’t hit a 45-yard field goal. A miss and Harvick donates $1,000 to the school. A make and the two-time 2015 winner will suddenly feel a $10,000 hole in his pocket. RELATED: Harvick, PR rep make field goal bet Read More

Keelan Harvick takes wrench to dad's car on pit road

BRISTOL, Tenn. -- Keelan, we know you haven't even hit birthday No. 3 yet, but messing with dad Kevin Harvick's No. 4 Chevrolet tires in plain sight at Bristol Motor Speedway seems like bad timing, no? We're not too sure the "I-can't-even-read-the-rule-book-because-I-don't-know-how-to-read-yet" excuse is going to hold up, little guy. Dad's already in the Chase, so let's just hope nobody catches wind of this and puts the blame on Uncle Rodney. Yikes, there's even video evidence. Gosh, NASCAR's R&D Center is going to have a field day with this. Little Keelan Harvick wrenching on dad's No. 4 at @BMSUpdates. #NASCAR https://t.co/7HB6vSQhTM — FOX SPORTS: NASCAR (@NASCARONFOX) April 17, 2015 Read More

2001 Daytona 500 winner surprises riders, including some NASCAR fans

Driving as an Uber partner was no trouble for Michael Waltrip. After all, as he joked, he's pretty good at making left turns. The Michael Waltrip Racing owner hopped in a vehicle for the company that owns the mobile app-based transportation network, driving surprised riders to their final destination (no, not the movie). A hidden camera captured the entire event. There were even a few NASCAR fans along for the ride, as the video above shows. Make sure to watch until the end for a promo code offering users new to Uber a free first ride (up to $20). Read More

Editor's note: On Wednesday at noon ET, "High 5" will present some of the best NASCAR-related content from around the web. 1. Terrible tacos Prior to Saturday night’s Duck Commander 500 at Texas Motor Speedway, Michael Waltrip made the ultimate Mexican food faux pas when he spilled a taco onto Denny Hamlin’s No. 11 ride. Tacos seem to be getting everyone in trouble lately. Especially giant ones that run into moving cars while advertising for New York restaurant Baby's All Right by means of a skateboard. According to the restaurant's Instagram, the taco is all right but, like the Waltrip-Hamlin situation, the driver is not pleased. Read More
