After a week or more of debate, Kevin Harvick explained he was still unsure whether or not the four week probation handed down by NASCAR applied to Saturday night's Sprint All-Star Race.
"I’m still confused whether I am on probation or not on probation so I can’t answer that," he said when asked if he would be hesitant racing Kyle Busch in the All-Star Race. "I don’t really know. I’m just going to go race and see what happens."
Following his comments, Harvick had a meeting inside the NASCAR hauler before heading out to practice. NASCAR spokesman Kerry Tharp explained Harvick had already been invited earlier in the day to come to the NASCAR hauler and the meeting was not a direct result of his comments.
Apparently, Harvick was not the only driver still unclear if probabtion applied to the Sprint All-Star Race. After his media availability concluded, Greg Biffle asked, "Does anybody know if the probation applies to Kevin in this race? Or does it skip this race? So you get points taken away even though you don't get points issued?"
Biffle denied anyone put him up to the question and explained he would bring up the point in Saturday's driver meeting.
