Kevin Harvick to Host "Happy Hours" on SiriusXM NASCAR Radio

SiriusXM today announced that 2014 Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series Champion Kevin Harvick, driver of the No. 4 Ford Fusion for Stewart-Haas Racing and one of the sport's most popular drivers, will host a new exclusive show on SiriusXM NASCAR Radio, available to listeners nationwide on satellite radios and the SiriusXM app.

Happy Hours will debut on March 28 and air every Tuesday from 7:00 to 9:00 pm ET, featuring Harvick's distinctive perspective on his sport and life outside the track.  Harvick and co-host Matt Yocum will take calls from listeners and give NASCAR fans a unique view on the driver's life and interests when he is away from the race car.  In June the show will begin airing every other week.

"I'm excited to partner up with SiriusXM NASCAR Radio and give the fans an inside look at what it's like to be a NASCAR driver in today's age," said Kevin Harvick. "It will be fun to give the listeners my opinion on things that are happening within our sport."

"Kevin is one of the most exciting drivers on the track, and an extremely fun-loving person off the track," said Steve Cohen, SiriusXM's SVP of Sports Programming.  "That combination of competitiveness and personality is perfect for SiriusXM.  Kevin and Matt will create a show that is enlightening, entertaining and unlike anything else on the airwaves."

Harvick has 35 career Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series victories, including wins in such crown-jewel events as the DAYTONA 500 at Daytona International Speedway (Fla.), the Brickyard 400 at Indianapolis Motor Speedway (Ind.) and the Southern 500 at Darlington Raceway (S.C.).  In addition to his impressive performance in the Monster Energy Series, Harvick is a two-time NASCAR XFINITY Series champion with 46 series wins and 14 NASCAR Camping World Truck Series victories.
