Harvick is going to need a balance of speed and durability since he is starting 15th. He will challenge for a top-five, but he needs to win in order to advance to the second round of the Chase and that is difficult to control for any driver. Oct 3 - 2:49 PM

Kevin Harvick’s team either miscalculated their fuel or something went wrong with the fuel cell at New Hampshire Motor Speedway. They ran out of gasoline three laps from the end of the Sylvania 300 and finished 21st.

This comes on the heels of an accident and 42nd-place finish at Chicagoland Speedway. Harvick currently sits 15th in the standings, 23 points behind 12th-place Dale Earnhardt Jr. That is not his only problem, however, he also needs to outrun Kyle Busch and Paul Menard by 22 positions or Jamie McMurray by 24 spots. Harvick’s most likely path to round two of the Chase for the Championship is to win the AAA 400.

Kevin Harvick posted the fastest lap in final practice for the Sylvania 300 at New Hampshire. His top speed was 134.577 mph.

Harvick has been fast all weekend and should contend for the victory. He only needs to stay out of trouble this week,

Kevin Harvick recorded the quickest 10-lap average in the second practice session for the Sylvania 300. His top 10-lap speed of 132.412 mph was recorded from laps three through 12.

Harvick needs to win or finish in in the top 10 this week to stay in Chase contention. He was dominant at Phoenix International Raceway earlier this year and that factors positively for his handicap.

Eric Chemi, who runs data journalism for our sister network CNBC, has run the numbers and believes Kevin Harvick is one of the four most-likely drivers to fail to advance into the second round of the Chase—and he has only himself to blame.

According to analyst Chemi, Harvick has a 52 percent chance of advancing, which is the 14th-best in the field. If the No. 4 had pitted immediately after experiencing his tire rub, he would have likely been given a wave around later in the afternoon and even a 22nd-place result would have given him the 11th ranking according to this data.

Kevin Harvick will lead the field to green on Sunday after rain canceled qualification for the 400 at Chicagoland Speedway on Friday. His top speed of 188.317 mph was enough to top the first practice session’s leaderboard.

Harvick’s best starting position previous to this was a fourth in 2006 and he finished fourth that same weekend. Since then he has failed to crack the top 10 in time trials and will be happy to start first. He was already a favorite, but this solidifies his handicap.

Kevin Harvick posted the fastest lap in the first practice session for the 400 at Chicagoland Speedway. His top speed was 188.317 mph.

With rain in the area, this practice session could set the lineup for Sunday’s race. Speed is important on every track and momentum from this race will help set the pace for the Chase.

Kevin Harvick brings a great record to the Chase opener this week. Three of his last four races at Chicagoland Speedway have ended in top-fives and he won the first two races ever held on this track in 2001/2002.

In total, Harvick has earned top-fives in 57 percent of his races and has finished on the lead lap in all but two events. He will run well enough this week to make fantasy players immediately forget his struggles at Richmond International Raceway in the Federated Auto Parts 400 and the No. 4 should be on most rosters.

Kevin Harvick struggled uncharacteristically at Richmond International Raceway and finished one lap off the pace in 14th.

This is the only time in 2015 that he failed to go the distance without any issues. His three previous incomplete races came at Bristol Motor Speedway this spring with crash damage, Michigan International Speedway in June with a tire issue, and Pocono Raceway in August with a blown engine. It is not time to panic just yet.
Sep 13 - 12:51 PM

Kevin Harvick posted the fastest single lap in final practice for the Federated Auto Parts 400 at Richmond International Raceway. His top speed was 125.430 mph.

Harvick has been one of the better qualifiers in recent races and he enters the weekend with three consecutive top-five starts. One of these was based on practice speed when time trials were rained out last spring. His most recent two starts ended in top-five finishes.
Sep 11 - 2:25 PM

All stats point toward Kevin Harvick earning yet another top-five at Richmond International Raceway in the Federated Auto Parts 400.

No matter how one looks at the numbers, Harvick seems to be destined to earn a top-five this week. His last two starts at Richmond ended in a fifth last fall and second this spring, he has six top-fives in his last seven starts of 2015, and four of his last five efforts on short, flat tracks ended that well.

Kevin Harvick earned his third consecutive top-five at Darlington Raceway and his 18th such finish in 25 races of 2015. He crossed under the checkers fifth in the Bojangles' Southern 500.

Harvick shows no sign of slowing down, which makes him a consistent pick for fantasy players. The Chase can be tricky and he needs to carry momentum with him into the playoffs, but he is earning a lot of points for fantasy players and remains a place-and-hold driver.
Sep 7 - 12:26 AM

Kevin Harvick can be added to the list of drivers with Darlington Stripes. His contact was relatively light and should not require a backup.

Harvick’s contact came in the final few minutes of final practice. To find the edge, drivers have to step over it on occasion and Harvick should still be a good bet to finish in the top five.
Sep 4 - 6:26 PM

Kevin Harvick was fourth fastest in the first practice session for the Bojangles' Southern 500 at Darlington Raceway with a speed of 175.654 mph. He landed behind teammates Kurt Busch (175.842) and Tony Stewart (175.710).

When an organization shows consistent speed across all of their members, that is generally a good sign that the lead drivers will run well. Expect top-five battles from Busch and Harvick.
Sep 4 - 1:39 PM

A top-five is all but certain for Kevin Harvick this week. He enters the Bojangles' Southern 500 at Darlington as the defending winner from 2014, finished fifth there in 2013, and has five top-fives in the last six races of this season.

In addition, Harvick has finished on the lead lap in his last six Darlington starts, which suggests he will finish strong even if he stumbles. There is no such thing as firm certainly in NASCAR and Harvick has four crash-induced results in 18 starts, but he should be a safe pick.
