Everything's coming up fine for Kevin Harvick. Just hours after winning in Michigan, he was on the golf course for his own pro-am at the Sedgefield Country Club in Greensboro, N.C. But as Harvick himself demonstrated, "driving" has very different connotations on the track and the golf course.
"I was more nervous than I've ever been in a race car in my whole entire life, I can promise you that," Harvick said after his round via News 14 Carolina. "The only thing I care about was that first tee box, and that went well. The rest of the day went very bad. I was having a tough time; maybe I stayed up too late last night. It was definitely a little longer night than the nine o'clock departure that I'm used to to go to bed. It was a good night to celebrate, though, and a good day to be tired."
Like many NASCAR charities, a portion of the tournament's proceeds went to the Victory Junction Gang camp. Celebrities in attendance included Denny Hamlin, Scott Speed, Celtics coach Doc Rivers, and North Carolina coach Roy Williams.
Harvick isn't particularly skilled at golf -- he's only been at it a few months -- but if you're looking to hang with him, he'll be following his pal Jason Gore, a PGA Tour player, at the Wyndham PGA event this week in Greensboro. Stop him and say hi.
After the jump, some video of Harvick and Clint Bowyer out on the golf course from last year. Well worth checking out.
