The Kevin Harvick Foundation Park, built by Kevin and DeLana Harvick’s charitable foundation and Cal Ripken’s foundation, will be a great benefit for the community. The News & Record ran a feature at the ribbon cutting recently; more details are here.

The UNCG connection? DeLana Linville Harvick is a UNCG alumna. In a 2010 UNCG Magazine feature, she spoke of her UNCG experience – Dr. Charles Tisdale was her favorite professor. After graduation as an English major she used her communications skills to work PR for NASCAR drivers – she’d grown up around the sport. Her father was driver Paul Linville. She met a young driver from California, Kevin Harvick. They married and ultimately formed KHI Racing Team and also the Kevin Harvick Foundation, which has done a lot of great work.

In the hours before each race – and during the race – her tweets are informative and engaging, an inside look at the race. As Kevin Harvick competes for the championship again in the final race of the year this Sunday, follow her at https://twitter.com/DeLanaHarvick.
