MARTINSVILLE, Va. — Kevin Harvick blasted the Sprint Cup team he’s leaving after a crash with team owner Richard Childress’ grandson, Ty Dillon.

USA Today reported that Dillon bumped Harvick from behind, causing the two to spin out late in the race Saturday afternoon at Martinsville Speedway.

“(Dillon) just dumped me,” Harvick said about the crash. “Exactly the reason why I’m leaving RCR because you’ve got those kids coming up, and they’ve got no respect for what they do in this sport and they’ve had everything fed to them with a spoon.

So I cut him slack all day, and he just dive-bombs me in there, dumps me. It’s a shame you’ve got to get taken out by some rich kid like that.”

Harvick is leaving Richard Childress Racing after 13 seasons in Sprint Cup to join Stewart-Haas Racing.

Dillon has raced in the Camping World Truck series the past two seasons. He is moving into Nationwide next year to supplant his older brother, Austin.

Austin is expected to move into Sprint Cup and effectively take over the ride being vacated by Harvick.

    Harvick is a PUNK

  • And Hege, you just said that because you know it’s exactly true, straight on. These rich kids have this sense of entitlement that makes them think they can do whatever the Bleep they want with impunity, but when the cosmic order comes around on’em and spins them out, they turn out to be the biggest cry babbies of all. I dare you to say it ain’t so, You can’t because you know it is and that’s the bottom line.
