(AP) -- Kevin Harvick headed into NASCAR's two-week break during the Olympics delighted to be away from his own race car but with plans to be wrapped up in his young son's fledgling career behind the wheel.

Joe Gibbs Racing teammates Kyle Busch and Martin Truex Jr. are happy to have the break, too, and a chance to do summer vacation things in the summer rather than the winter, when the sport takes an extended break from racing.

The now half-over, two-week hiatus is something Harvick wishes would become a regular thing.
