September 7, 2004 reports: Kevin Harvick, Inc.'s No. 6 Chevrolet Silverado will don the special paint scheme of America's legendary rock band KISS in Thursday night's (Sept. 9) running of the Kroger 200 at Richmond International Raceway. Matt Crafton, driver of the No. 6 GM Goodwrench truck for KHI, will be the first of three drivers to continue the relationship between KISS, Chevrolet, and GM Goodwrench throughout the weekend. Team owner and NEXTEL Cup star Kevin Harvick, along with NASCAR Busch Series driver Ron Hornaday, will also run special KISS paint schemes in each of their respected series.

"KISS has been involved with NASCAR since the fall of 2001," explains lead singer Paul Stanley. "It is a great American sport and it has been great for us to be involved with Chevrolet. We couldn't be more pleased to continue our partnership with a company like Chevrolet and be affiliated with Richard Childress Racing and Kevin Harvick, Inc. We will be represented in all three series, which is something we have never done before, so we intend on going out there to win and expose more people to racing and rock n' roll, which go hand in hand. We are really proud to be a part of this."

"This is awesome," adds Crafton. "I met Gene (Simmons) and Paul (Stanley) at our Chevrolet unveiling of the KISS paint schemes and then got to see them in action when they came to play at Charlotte. It is an honor to have such a legendary rock band supporting us this race. In high school, I used to listen to them quite a bit so it's kind of weird to have a one-off paint scheme with a band you were a fan of and listened to for so long. I have always liked the one-off paint schemes that teams come out with and now I get to be a part of one." Read more.
