Kevin Harvick’s signature, right footprint and handprints now have their place in history at the legendary Daytona International Speedway. On Wednesday, Daytona International Speedway President Robin Braig and The Daytona 500 Experience General Manager Kim Isemann placed the 3×3 cement block with Harvick’s signature, footprint and handprints in the Daytona 500 Champion’s Walk of Fame, which is located just outside of the Official Attraction of NASCAR.
Winning drivers of the Daytona 500 since 1996, the first year of operation for The Daytona 500 Experience, have their hands, right foot and signature immortalized in cement in the Daytona 500 Champion’s Walk of Fame. Harvick, who won the 2007 Daytona 500 by the slim margin of .020 seconds over Mark Martin, joined that exclusive club during the recent NEXTEL Cup Series weekend in July when he did his imprints inside The Daytona 500 Experience motorsports attraction. Beginning with the 50th running of the Daytona 500, the winner of “The Great American Race” will do their imprints in the cement during post-race Gatorade Victory Lane ceremonies and the cement block will then be placed in the Daytona 500 Champion’s Walk of Fame during the Sprint Cup Series weekend in July.
