Kevin Harvick struggles in the 2021 Cup Series season continued with the race at Atlanta Motor Speedway.
The Stewart-Haas Racing’s driver had an excellent start to the race, after starting in the fifth position, but consistent issues with his car meant that he had to endure another disappointing race in the 2021 season.
Harvick was within the top-5 position when the competition caution came out but a flat left rear tire and other issues meant that the No. 4 driver dropped out of the top 20.
He could not hold his frustration on how his race was going on and was heard saying:
“This is the biggest pile of crap I’ve ever driven at Atlanta. I can’t make it do anything. The front end – absolutely horrendous. When I get into traffic, it gets worse.”
“The biggest pile of crap I’ve ever driven at Atlanta.”

Atalanta has been one of Harvick’s good tracks having won two of the last four races there. He managed to finish in the 10th position in the end but the race ensured that Harvick is finding it difficult to keep up with his 2020 achievements.
“It’s pretty unbelievable. It’s so screwed up I don’t know how you can fix it,” Harvick said again. “There is something majorly wrong with the front or it’s just way too tight.”
