For the second consecutive time, Kevin Harvick lost a valve stem on his tire at Dover and lost a lap to the leaders. He finished 13th in the AAA 400 on the heels of a 17th this spring on that same track.

Harvick also had a tire problem earlier in the season at Auto Club Speedway, and this most recent issue came on the heels of three consecutive top-five finishes—just when it appeared that his biggest problems and mistakes were in the rearview mirror.
Sep 29 - 3:08 PM

Kevin Harvick proved that his pole winning speed was no fluke. He posted the fastest single lap in Dover’s Happy Hour practice for the AAA 400 with a speed of 157.089 mph.

Harvick should have the speed to scoot away from the field in the opening laps, but the key to his success will be in how well the team can keep up with adjustments as the track rubbers in—and, of course, that they have an error-free race. Neither intangible can be adequately handicapped, so Harvick remains one of this week’s favorites to finish in the top five in the AAA 400.

Kevin Harvick won the pole for Sunday’s AAA 400 with a speed of 162.933 mph. It is his seventh pole of the 2014 season and 13th of his career.

Qualification has been important at Dover in recent seasons. Jimmie Johnson won this spring after starting fourth and six of the last 10 winners started on one of the first two rows. Harvick has six previous poles this year; he won his first attempt and finished second in the next two, but his most recent pair of poles ended in results outside the top 10.

Kevin Harvick posted the fastest single lap in the first practice session at Dover International Speedway for the AAA 400. His best lap logged in at 163.852 mph.

Drivers worked primarily on qualification trim in this session because starting position is more critical to their potential success at Dover than on any other track. If Harvick backs up his practice with a top-five effort in time trial, he has to be considered one of the favorites to win on Sunday.

Kevin Harvick finished third in the Sylvania 300 and is a virtual lock to advance to the Contender round. He has a 41-point advantage over 13th-place in the standings and needs only about a top-35 finish to continue in the Chase.

Harvick had one of the strongest cars all weekend. He led the most laps and was never in serious jeopardy of falling out of the top five. Equally important, the team had flawless pit stops and that will alleviate some of their worry entering Dover.
Sep 21 - 7:51 PM

Kevin Harvick posted the quickest 10-lap average in final practice for the Sylvania 300 with a speed of 134.465 mph from his 28th to 37th laps on the track.

His fastest lap in that session was a third-best 135.236 mph, which gives him a good balance of speed and durability. The battle for the New Hampshire trophy will most likely come down to Harvick, Brad Keselowski, and Jeff Gordon because they also had top-three fastest laps and 10-lap averages.
Sep 20 - 2:55 PM

Kevin Harvick qualified third for the Sylvania 300 and looks to carry the momentum of back-to-back top-fives at Chicagoland and Richmond into New Hampshire.

Harvick was also fast in the Saturday morning session with the fourth-fastest lap at the 45-minute mark. He was running second to Brad Keselowski this summer in New Hampshire’s first race before he ran out of gas on the final restart.

Because of the high volume of mistakes by his crew, Kevin Harvick swapped with Tony Stewart before the MyAFibStory.com 400. It did not keep the No. 4 from being error-free as they left lugnuts loose during an early-race pit stop. Harvick was forced to pit twice under caution and dropped to the back of the lead lap.

Fortunately, the incident occurred early enough in the race that Harvick had plenty of time to overcome it and he finished fifth, but the fallibility of this team remains an open question and that will impact his fantasy handicap and likelihood that he will advance through all three rounds of the Chase.

Sprint Cup regular (No. 4 Chevrolet SS) Kevin Harvick wins the Jimmy John's Freaky Fast 300 Powered by Coca-Cola, his 44th victory in 314 NASCAR Nationwide Series (NNS) races.

This is the No. 5 Chevrolet Camaro driver's fourth victory and 13th top-10 NNS finish in 2014. This is his third victory and seventh top-10 finish in 11 NNS races at Chicagoland Speedway.

Sprint Cup regular (No. 4 Chevrolet SS0 Kevin Harvick has the best 10-lap consecutive average speed in the first practice for the Nationwide Series Jimmy John’s Freaky Fast 300 at Chicagoland Speedway.

The average speed of 175.381 mph in the No. 5 Chevrolet Camaro was best of the five cars that ran 10 consecutive laps on the track for this session. No. 62 Brendan Gaughan (174.6 mph), No. 31 Dylan Kwasniewski (173.769 mph), No.23 Cody Ware (165.597 mph) and No. 90 Martin Roy (164.958 mph) are the rest on this list.

In addition to his familiar No. 4 Jimmy John’s Chevrolet SS for Stewart-Haas Racing in the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series, Kevin Harvick will pilot a similarly-designed No. 5 Jimmy John’s Chevrolet Camaro in Saturday’s Jimmy John’s Freaky Fast 300 Nationwide Series race at Chicagoland Speedway.

Harvick’s third-place run at Richmond last week gave him his 22nd consecutive top-10 finish in Nationwide Series competition dating back to 2013. It’s the second-longest top-10 streak of Harvick’s career, as he previously went 23 races in 2006-07.-JR Motorsports

Kevin Harvick was expected to be one of the challengers for the victory Saturday night at Richmond International Raceway. He was the only driver other than Brad Keselowski to lead laps in the Federated Auto Parts 400, but the team lost the handle in the second half and he had to fight hard for a fifth-place finish.

The hidden good news is that neither the driver nor crew made any big mistakes. Points matter once more during the Chase and Harvick needs to record consistently strong finishes to contend. If he can do that, he will be a good fantasy value as well.
Sep 7 - 11:50 AM

Kevin Harvick will race Chassis No. 846 this week at Richmond. Its last outing ended in a second-place finish at Pocono in August.

This chassis also scored a 39th at Bristol following an accident and 17th at Dover with a flat tire. Speed and handling have not been Harvick’s issue this year, but he must have a mistake- or incident-free race to capitalize on the chassis’ strength.

Kevin Harvick posted the fastest single lap in a marathon, three-hour practice session. His top speed was 129.112 mph, which was set early on lap two.

Nearly everyone posted their fastest laps early while the track still had a lot of grip from morning temps and rain on Thursday. This session was much longer than normal because NASCAR and Goodyear are using a new compound.
