Oildale is not an affluent area by any means. According to the American Community Survey from 2014, nearly 39 percent of households in Oildale have yearly incomes of less than $25,000 a year. The median household income in Oildale is $33,818, plus or minus $2,183. Rent is reasonable by today's standards at $745 a month, but that can be taxing on the median income listed.
Editor's Note: We cannot directly link to either place where we got the data in the previous paragraph. For the ACS Survey, go to the United States Census Bureau's American FactFinder and input Oildale. For the rents, we got our data from Rentometer. Enter Oildale in the search box on the homepage.
My takeaway is that Harvick came from very limited means and employed a great deal of self-determination in order to make it in NASCAR. He didn't have a lot growing up, so he had to stretch what he could. Very humbling. Harvick then made it to the top with what could be described as very limited help. He's a blue collar man who could work on race cars with the best of them when he had to. Even though he no longer lives in Bakersfield, the Sprint Cup champion is still connected to where he grew up and tries to help make the community better.
