10 NASCAR Drivers That Have A Beater Inside Their Garage
Kevin Harvick – Classic 1955 Chevy
Kevin Harvick won the Daytona 500 in 2007, the Coca-Cola 600 in 2011 and 2013, and his first Sprint Cup Series championship in 2014, edging out Ryan Newman by one point. Harvick said about his most loved 1955 Chevy, “Once I turned 16, my father tried to pull a fast one on me.
He bought a 1955 Chevy to restore and put it in a garage with a late-model stock car that we bought, and he said, ‘We couldn’t manage each of such, so in case you really want to race, you need to allow me to know now or we’ll invest another many many year restoring this car’.
I decided we needed to sell the ’55, and everything worked out. My wife bought one for me 7 or 8 years ago for my birthday.
Dale Earnhardt Jr – 1967 Camaro
Following in his father’s footsteps (NASCAR Hall of Famer Dale Earnhardt Sr), Dale Earnhardt Jr has had a very extremely effective career in car racing. He won the Daytona 500 in 2004 and 2014 and finished second 4 times. Earnhardt retired with 26 wins inside the NASCAR Cup Series, placing him in the very best forty in NASCAR history.
The third-generation Earnhardt is as passionate with the Chevy Camaro, as had been his wife, children as were his family predecessors. Despite the fact that he owns several generations of Chevys, his favorite can be his old-school 1967 Camaro.
Rebuilt by Detroit Speed Inc, it features a conventional little-block Chevy V8 with aluminum heads and a carburetor mated to a five-speed manual transmission.
