Kevin Harvick will drive a throwback paint scheme honoring former NASCAR Busch Series champions at Darlington Raceway.
The No. 4 Stewart-Haas Racing Ford Mustang will sport a retro blue-and-white Busch Beer look for the NASCAR Cup Series Southern 500 throwback race at the 1.366-mile South Carolina oval on Sept. 6 (6 p.m. ET on NBCSN/NBC Sports App, MRN, SiriusXM NASCAR Radio). The car also features the old Busch Series logo (which is now the NASCAR Xfinity Series) and a tribute to Harvick’s pair of series championships in 2001 and 2006.
In addition to the paint scheme, Busch Beer, the Official Beer of NASCAR, has also created a specialty can that pays homage to all the former Busch Series title winners.
