Kevin Harvick was cruising to victory in Saturday afternoon's Nationwide Series race at New Hampshire Motor Speedway until he suddenly ran up on the lapped car of Amber Cope.
Cope, one of former driver Derrike Cope's twin nieces, got in Harvick's way and broke his momentum. It cost him the victory when eventual winner Brad Keselowski took advantage of Harvick's sudden slowness and passed the No. 33 car.
Harvick, obviously, was not too happy afterward.
"It's not one of 'those deals,' it's somebody who shouldn't be on the racetrack, who has no clue what they're doing in the race car," Harvick told ESPN. "She wants to be Danica Patrick, but she can't hold her helmet. I don't even know who it is, to tell you the truth."
Harvick said every time he came to Cope's No. 24 car, "she doesn't know whether she's going high or low."
"It looked like she went up, so I committed to the bottom," Harvick said. "And she came down."
