It’s Shake n’ Bake Time: Kevin Harvick Buys Ricky Bobby’s Fictional Homestead!
Hey there, speedsters! Who’s up for a cool tale combining the world of NASCAR and Hollywood? Grab your helmet because this one’s a treat! Listen closely now, pandemic or not, when life gives you lemons, you do like Kevin Harvick and buy a mansion.
NASCAR analyst Harvick recently waved the checkered flag on a mansion purchase worthy of being etched into the annals of NASCAR folklore. The property? None other than the residence of the legendary Ricky Bobby from the iconic 2006 comedy ‘Talladega Nights: The Ballad of Ricky Bobby’. Actor Will Ferrell played Bobby, who wasn’t a stranger to some good old-fashioned luxury.
Ricky Bobby may be a fictional hero, but his mansion? That’s as real as the sound of roaring engines on a NASCAR track! As reported by the Charlotte Business Journal, Harvick coughed up $6.75 million for the real-life kingdom of this fictional king! The property, nestled in a gated community on Lake Norman in Cornelius, North Carolina, was initially listed for a colossal $8.4 million.
Look under the hood of this palace, and you’ll find quite a powerhouse! Six bedrooms, nine baths, an infinity pool begging for a cannonball, and a boat dock for when you want to swap out pavement for waves. Also, it comes with a four-car garage because we’re talking NASCAR here; you can’t have too many rides!
“I’m not sure what to do with my hands,” as Ricky Bobby famously said, our newest mansion owner, Harvick, would have much to explore and experience. As the new landlord of the NASCAR Heaven, Harvick’s laughing to the garage, not the bank!
“And again, as always, thank you for my smokin’ hot wife,” – the phrase Ricky himself liked a lot. It looks like it worked for Harvick, too, who pieced together this mansion-purchasing decision with his wife, DeLana. If that isn’t a team effort, I don’t know what is!
Remember, a wise man once said, “If you ain’t first, you’re last.” Well, Harvick is undoubtedly anything but last in this case. Congratulations, Kevin Harvick; you nailed the Ricky Bobby lifestyle!
