Mooresville, NC (SportsNetwork.com) - Kevin Harvick will drive the No. 5 Chevrolet for JR Motorsports in a minimum of 12 Nationwide Series races next season, the team announced on Monday.

Harvick, a two-time Nationwide champion, is ranked third on the series' all- time race winners list with 40, including one victory this season at Atlanta (Aug. 31). He is in his last year driving for Richard Childress Racing in the Sprint Cup Series before he moves over to Stewart-Haas Racing for the 2014 season.

Hunt Brothers Pizza will sponsor Harvick in four Nationwide races (Bristol, Charlotte and both Texas events).

"This is pretty cool to have Kevin a part of our team," team co-owner Dale Earnhardt Jr. said in a team statement. "I've known him for a long time. He's an incredible racer. He will be a huge asset to JR Motorsports, our sponsors and our fans. I'm grateful that he wants to drive our cars, and I'm grateful that Hunt Brothers Pizza is committed to Kevin and our race program. We're happy to have them."

JRM's No. 5 team will run a full Nationwide schedule again next year. The remainder of the driver lineup will be revealed at a later date. Kasey Kahne, Brad Sweet, Jimmie Johnson, Jamie McMurray and Ron Fellows have shared driving duties for that team this season.
