Kevin Harvick wasn't doing much on Thursday night and was already at Richmond International Raceway, so he figured he'd watch the track's racing doubleheader – from the grandstands.
Harvick and a few buddies found some seats in Richmond's Turn 3, then witnessed Darrell Wallace Jr. win the K&N East Series race and Denny Hamlin win the Denny Hamlin Short Track Showdown charity race.
"There was a lot going on," Harvick said. "That's the first time I've ever even stepped outside of the infield at the racetrack here. Usually I'm racing the Nationwide car or Truck or whatever the case may be. And usually if you're not racing, you just sit on pit road and watch them go by."
Harvick said the change of scenery and a "different perspective" was good for him. Plus, he added Richmond is just an enjoyable place to watch racing in general.
"Here it's fun because you can see the whole track and you can get close enough to the racetrack to feel what's going on," Harvick said. "Just a fun time."
If he had to do it over again, though, Harvick joked that he'd rethink his seats.
"I needed to move down about half a section," he said, "because all of the wrecks were coming off Turn 2."
