Kevin Harvick has four recent top-10s at Martinsville Speedway, but he has not finished in the top five since 2011.
It is hard to say Harvick will not be a good value this week, but there are certainly better opportunities to start him. Texas Motor Speedway and Phoenix International Raceway are next up on the schedule and the No. 4 has been stellar on similarly-configured, 1.5-mile tracks to recommend him in the Lone Star State. His record at Phoenix is—well simply spectacular. Oct 27 - 12:14 PM

Kevin Harvick finished seventh in the Hellmann's 500 at Talladega SuperSpeedway after starting the afternoon 22nd.

Harvick had a decision to make at the end of the race that might have radically altered his outcome and that of many drivers in the field. Denny Hamlin entered the race needing to finish significantly better than several drivers on the cusp of the top eight in points and put himself in a bad situation with Harvick on the frontstretch. Harvick lifted when Hamlin tried to cut him off and lost several positions in the final run to the checkers as a result.

Kevin Harvick posted the slowest speed in qualification for the Hellmann's 500 at Talladega SuperSpeedway with the 22nd-fastest speed of 190.768 mph in the first round.

Harvick knows it is not where you start, but where one finishes at Talladega. He has qualified 24th or worse four times in his past six attempts on this track before sweeping the top 15. His best improvement was a ninth-place finish in October 2014 after starting 39th.

Kevin Harvick enters the Hellmann's 500 with six consecutive top-15 finishes at Talladega SuperSpeedway.

None of these have been top-fives with a best of seventh in 2014. It does not matter where he finishes this week after his Hollywood Casino 400 victory automatically advances him to the next round and that could allow him to make a bold move to get to the lead. Then again, it could also cause him to trigger a "Big One" crash.

Kevin Harvick posted the fastest single lap among the Chase contenders in the first practice session for the Hellmann's 500 at Talladega SuperSpeedway.

His fastest lap of 196.483 mph was .604 seconds slower than Greg Biffle’ 198.949, but the draft will be the great equalizer.

Kevin Harvick beat Carl Edwards on a restart with about 30 laps remaining, held the advantage to the end, and won the Hollywood Casino 400 to advance to the third round of the Chase.

Last week, Jimmie Johnson earned his 25th Chase victory to extend his advantage over the rest of the field. No one has more clutch wins than Harvick, however. He won at Phoenix International Raceway in 2014 in a must-win situation and then won the championship the next race. Last year, he dug a deep hole in round one and was forced to win at Dover International Speedway to advance. Earlier this year, he needed a win at New Hampshire Motor Speedway to secure his advance, and his Kansas Speedway win came after mechanical failure at Charlotte. His ability to win in the clutch is simply amazing.

Kevin Harvick lightly scraped the wall with 20 minutes remaining in final practice for the Hollywood Casino 400 at Kansas Speedway.

Harvick was testing out a higher groove than normal and "jumped the cushion." He got his right side tires in the marbles, which are little bits of rubber that accumulate just outside the groove. Harvick nearly crashed, but managed to get away with a light scrape. Just prior to that, he was reported to have the best long-term speed in the field.

After experiencing a mechanical problem last week at Charlotte Motor Speedway, Kevin Harvick enters the Hollywood Casino 400 at Kansas Speedway 12th in the points; only eight advance to the next round.

A broken track bar mount at Dover International Speedway sent Harvick home 37th, but he already had a victory to his credit. He started round one with a 20th-place finish and needed a win at New Hampshire Motor Speedway to advance. Harvick cannot keep placing himself in these situations without something bad happening and it will take more than one strong run at Kansas to make fantasy owners trust him again.

Kevin Harvick had an oil pump bearing fail on lap 157 of the Bank of America 500 at Charlotte Motor Speedway. He finished 38th.

Harvick would be in grave danger of failing to miss round two of the Chase if not for problems experienced by four other contenders. Still, this is his third poor finish in the past four races and one has to wonder how long he can play with fire before getting burned.

Kevin Harvick has started first six times on similarly-configured, 1.5-mile tracks and his finishing results have ranged from first to 42nd.

Harvick won the 2013 Hollywood Casino 400 and finished second on that track the next May. He also has a 19th at Atlanta in 2014 and the crash-damage affected 42nd last year at Chicagoland when that race was set by NASCAR’s rule book.

With Hurricane Matthew wreaking havoc on the East Coast, NASCAR and Charlotte Motor Speedway have canceled all Friday activity.

That means the next time cars get on the track, it will be for the race. For now, the race is still scheduled of 7 p.m. ET on Saturday, but stay tuned in case the storm stalls. Kevin Harvick will lead the field to green.
Oct 7 - 2:34 PM

Kevin Harvick backed up his fastest lap in the first practice session with the best lap in the final round of qualification. He will lead the field to green from the pole Saturday night for the Bank of America 500 at Charlotte Motor Speedway.

This is Harvick’s first Charlotte pole, but he started on the outside of the front row once; that came in the 2013 edition of this race and he finished sixth. Harvick’s three previous Charlotte wins came from as high as seventh on the grid to as low as 28th.
Oct 6 - 8:22 PM

Kevin Harvick posted a lap of 193.757 to win the first practice session for the Bank of America 500 at Charlotte Motor Speedway at 193.757 mph. Harvick is a playoff contender.

With hurricane Matthew threatening to wash out Friday’s practice, this might be the drivers’ only chance to practice. This session occurred during the afternoon; both qualification and the race are scheduled to run under the lights, so a premium gets placed on experienced team with a big set of notes. Harvick battled with his car bottoming out for much of the session.

Besides driving his regular No. 4 Chevrolet SS in Saturday night's Sprint Cup Series Bank of America 500 at Charlotte Motor Speedway, Kevin Harvick will pilot the JR Motorsports No. 88 Hunt Brothers Pizza Chevrolet Camaro in the NASCAR XFINITY Series Drive for the Cure 300 at CMS on Friday night.

Harvick has 26 NASCAR XFINITY Series starts at the 1.5-mile speedway, which include seven top-five and 16 top-10 finishes. This weekend’s race will mark Harvick’s sixth NXS start for JRM in 2016. He will be behind the wheel of the No. 88 machine for the final time in Texas (Nov. 5). The California native has 31 NASCAR Sprint Cup Series starts at the track, capturing three wins, seven top-five and 14 top-10 finishes.-JRM

A broken track mount early in the Citizen Soldier 400 at Dover International Speedway sent Kevin Harvick behind the wall for more than 40 laps. He ultimately finished 37th.

The No. 4 team was probably experimenting since they had a win in the bank and even though they finished poorly, they may have actually learned something that will help them later in the playoffs.
