It is rumored that Harvick would replace Kasey Kahne, who is under contract with Hendrick through 2018. Harvick is under contract with Stewart-Haas through this season with an option for 2017.
Hendrick, of course, is Chevy and its drivers include Kahne, Dale Earnhardt Jr., Jimmie Johnson and rookie Chase Elliott.
But Harvick has continually denied the speculation and did so again Tuesday via Twitter:
Harvick won the Sprint Cup Series championship in 2014 and dominated most of 2015, but fell short of the title.
In 2016 he has picked up where he left off. Harvick is the series points leader, 21 in front of 2015 champion Kyle Busch and 32 ahead of Kyle’s brother, Kurt Busch.
