Kevin Harvick Can’t Stop Using Teenage Slang During NASCAR Broadcasts & I Can’t Get Enough Of It

Kevin Harvick is serving…well, never mind.

The 2014 NASCAR Cup Series champion stepped out from behind the wheel after last season, hanging up his helmet after 23 full-time seasons and 60 wins in NASCAR’s top series.

But Harvick is still serving as a face of the sport on Sundays since moving to FOX and joining their broadcast booth for Cup Series races.

The addition of Harvick as a full-time announcer has been a great change for NASCAR on FOX, bringing not only Harvick’s 23 years of experience behind the wheel but also his dry humor that made him such a fan-favorite while he was driving (and somebody to balance out Clint Bowyer’s high-energy personality).

And since joining the booth, the 48-year old Harvick has been doing his best to appeal to the younger crowd: He keeps hilariously slipping in teenage slang during his broadcasts.

Last week while talking to Bubba Wallace during the race at Las Vegas, Harvick told him that his car looked “pretty lit” – and Bubba called him out for it:

“You’re too old to be talking like that.”

And just now, during the Shriners Children’s 500 at Phoenix Raceway, Harvick slipped in some more of the youth’s lingo when he said that Denny Hamlin’s crew chief Chris Gabehart has “got that dog in him.”

His fellow announcer Clint Bowyer clearly enjoyed Harvick trying to relate to the younger audience – and the internet got a kick out of it too:

I don’t know if this is just a bit that Harvick came up with himself, or if it’s something his 11-year old son Keelon and 6-year old daughter Piper dared him to do.

But either way, I can’t get enough of hip Harvick.

He’s got this whole broadcaster thing on fleek. (Did I use that right? Do kids still say that? I’m too old for this).
