Harvick not planning any additional XFINITY races

After making 346 starts and winning 47 times, last week's Xfinity race at Darlington will be Kevin Harvick's last in the series, the driver announced Tuesday on "Happy Hours," his SiriusXM NASCAR Radio show.

"For me (Darlington) will be the last scheduled Xfinity race that we put on the schedule," Harvick said.

The decision was made in order to allow him to concentrate on his Cup car.

"With the two-day schedules, my family and all of the things that came up this year just because of the way the schedules worked out ... I just need to focus on my Cup car and the things that are happening there," Harvick said.

While Harvick will not commit to a regular schedule, he left open the possibility that he might run a select number of races in the future.

"It's not to say that I won't run here or there if we have a sponsor, or someone who needs something, or there's a new racetrack that's intriguing. But for me, there's no more planned Xfinity races," Harvick said.
