DAYTONA BEACH, Fla.- Kevin Harvick popped in for what he thought was a quick hello with a bedridden Tony Stewart.

Roughly a week after Stewart broke his right leg in a sprint car crash, Harvick was surprised to find his new boss' bedroom had been turned into an unlikely boardroom.

The entire Stewart-Haas organization had gathered to discuss the potential signing of Kurt Busch.

They wanted Harvick's input on adding a driver who hadn't exactly endeared himself in the past.

Baggage aside, Harvick knew as well as anyone that Busch was still as good as it gets as a wheelman.
