Like the children of many NASCAR drivers through the years, young Keelan Harvick seems eager to perhaps someday follow in his father’s footsteps.

Keelan, who is often seen sitting inside dad Kevin’s car or atop the No. 4 team’s pit box with his mother, DeLana, in February got his own kid-sized firesuit much like the one his dad wears on race days — and the one his mom wore back in the day to support her husband.

But Keelan, who will be 3 in July, is taking his affinity for his dad’s job to a whole new level.
