Pat and Saxon were invited to hang out in the pit of driver Kevin Harvick, who is a huge surfing fan. Pat was seen sitting Indian style doing some kind of meditating, good luck pose on top of a stack of Harvick’s tires. It must have worked, as Harvick finished 6th place, his best finish all year. Don’t worry, Pat and Saxon both declined offers to become full time members of the pit crew.
