Jake Owen : My connection to NASCAR
Singer details his relationship with Kevin Harvick for NASCAR.com Editor's note: Country music star Jake Owen has played at NASCAR races and is a client at KHI Management. The 2014 NASCAR Sprint Cup Series champion recently made an appearance in the music video for Owen's latest single, "Real Life." Learn more about Jake by clicking here and follow Jake on Twitter here . See below for a behind-the-scenes video of "Real Life." I've always enjoyed NASCAR and have always been a fan of the sport. I definitely became more involved once Kevin Harvick and I started working together. The last several years, watching how well he's done, has been incredible. To have the changes he did, not just in racing but in life, to go out and win the championship and join a new team and really start his own company when he had a new baby -- he's done so much stuff and has been so successful. He and his wife DeLana enjoyed my music, and four years ago they asked me to perform at a charity event for him, and I did. It was right about time they found out they were going to have a baby. I was going to be a dad as well, so we were going through the same things at the same time. We became friends, and it made sense for us to team up. Another reason it's been so great to work with him is that I think country music and NASCAR go together like peanut butter and jelly. The same folks who watch a NASCAR every race weekend are the same folks who come out to our shows and sing with us. Country music is fueled by people who live real lives, who are just everyday, good people. Both are very loyal. Our fans support us our whole careers. Same with NASCAR -- if there's a Dale Earnhardt fan or a Junior fan, they are lifelong fans. I just love that. When you talk about a NASCAR driver moving up and a country music singer making it big, I think they correlate a lot. Kevin and I really do get along and understand and have a similar background. I have good family, but I didn't have anything handed to me. I dropped out of college and moved to Nashville. My dad said, 'Good luck.' I worked really hard and built a little following, playing county fairs and festivals and backyard barbecues. I played everywhere I could. Now to be out playing stadiums with guys like Kenny Chesney, and to headline my own arenas, is amazing. When I go back to the city where that county fair was 10 years ago, it's so flattering that people will lay down money they’ve worked hard for to see my show. There's nothing more fulfilling to know after all the hard work, you make it -- call it going from dirt tracks to Daytona. I ended up asking Kevin to be in my new music video and told him, "I just want you to celebrate in the back of truck like you won a race, spraying everyone with champagne." Kevin was like, "I'm totally down with that." The song is called "Real Life," and it's about anything that happens on a daily basis that's out of our control, in our control, just things that happen every day. Really, it's about living it and treating others with respect. It's about being what I call a good all-American human being. We all have high moments and low. The guy who brings his camper out to race on Sunday, there's a chance he gets a flat tire. It's hot, kids are yelling in the background … those situations to me are what real life is all about -- living life to your best and fullest and smiling along the way.
P3 penalty, warning issued to two Truck Series teams
One NASCAR Camping World Truck Series team was issued a P3 penalty coming out of the weekend's race at Charlotte Motor Speedway , and a second was given a written warning, according to Tuesday's penalty release via NASCAR. No penalties or warnings were issued to NASCAR Sprint Cup Series teams.
