As great as #NASCARGoesWest is, the very nature of the three-week swing out to a handful of NASCAR’s western-most tracks makes it a logistical puzzle for drivers with families rooted in North Carolina.
That was the case this weekend for DeLana Harvick and her two children — Keelan and the newest addition Piper Grace. Those three were not on hand to witness Kevin Harvick’s dominating victory at Las Vegas Motor Speedway on Sunday, the landmark 100th national series win of his career.

Leave it to “Uncle Moke” to make sure they still took part in the victory celebration.

NASCAR heads to Phoenix’s ISM Raceway next — where Harvick has had, oh, a bit of success in the past. Assuming the likely event that three quarters of the family hangs back in N.C. next weekend, Stewart might want to make sure he has his phone fully charged Sunday evening.
