BALTIMORE (AP) - NASCAR driver Kevin Harvick is now a board member.
Harvick has joined the board of directors at the Cal Ripken Sr. Foundation in Baltimore.
Steve Salem, president of the foundation, says they "share a common goal and passion for providing youth with positive outlets and programs." The first thing the Ripken foundation and the Kevin Harvick Foundation are doing is combinging efforts to build a youth development park in the greater Greensboro, N.C., area.
Harvick has 23 NASCAR Sprint Cup Series wins, including the 2007 Daytona 500. He also has two NASCAR Nationwide Series championships, 40 Nationwide Series wins and 14 NASCAR Camping World Truck Series wins.
