DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. (AP) — Kevin Harvick popped in for what he thought was a quick hello with a bedridden Tony Stewart.
Roughly a week after Stewart broke his right leg in a sprint car crash, Harvick was surprised to find his new boss' bedroom had been turned into an unlikely boardroom. The entire Stewart-Haas organization had gathered to discuss the potential signing of Kurt Busch.
They wanted Harvick's input on adding a driver who hadn't exactly endeared himself in the past.
Baggage aside, Harvick knew as well as anyone that Busch was still as good as it gets as a wheelman.
