Childress: Harvick must remain

Kevin Harvick is under contract with Richard Childress Racing for one more season, and the team expects him to drive the No. 29 in 2010.

RCR released a statement Wednesday responding to an SI.com report that Harvick wanted out of his deal and was hopeful of moving to Stewart-Haas Racing.

Richard Childress says RCR has a multiyear contract with Harvick and sponsor Shell-Pennzoil. Childress says "Shell will be the sponsor and Kevin will be the driver of RCR's No. 29 Shell-Pennzoil Chevrolet Impala SS in 2010."

Harvick is 25th in the points standings this season. He hasn't won a Cup race since the 2007 Daytona 500.
