Kevin Harvick revealed Saturday that he suffered “busted ribs” earlier this summer after a fall down a flight of steps.
Harvick said the fall happened while he was in Italy with son Keelan, who was racing go-karts there at the time.
Harvick said the Cup races at Nashville and Chicago the following weekends were rough but he had mostly healed by Atlanta.
“The guys have done a good job in making something out of it, put ourselves in position to have a chance to win a couple of races. Had some bad ones and some good ones, kind of fought … and scraped and worked through an injury after the break.”
Harvick enters Sunday‘s race having scored four consecutive top-10 finishes, including fourth-place results at New Hampshire and Pocono.
