Video: Tony Stewart grabs behind of fellow driver's wife
This was the scene during the pre-race at Chicagoland Speedway on Sunday as Delana Harvick, wife of NASCAR driver Kevin Harvick, fell victim to a good-natured "good luck grab" from fellow driver Tony Stewart.
As you can see, Mrs. Harvick is obviously surprised by the sneak attack but doesn't take offense too much to it. Apparently, Stewart is known for his ritual of walking up to someone and giving them a handful of good luck before races.
Stewart is a close friend of the Harvick family and the move was all done in good fun. But it's easy to see how people who were unaware of the situation could have seen the incident as appalling. Especially considering it was caught on television.
Thanks to Carrie Boarman of Tire Ball for the lead.
