Kevin Harvick would have bettered Joey Logano by 26 markers if the current points system, but not the Chase, was in play in play last year.
Kyle Busch, Brad Keselowski, and Denny Hamlin would have rounded out the top five. Notably the 2016 champion Jimmie Johnson would have finished 152 points behind and landed seventh due to some early season struggles. Jan 8 - 4:02 PM

Kevin Harvick had the best average finish of all drivers in 2016 and he was also the only one to crack the 10th-place mark.

Harvick posted an average of 9.92 in 36 races. To accomplish the feat, he scored four victories and a remarkable 17 top-fives—which equals just under half the races run. Tack on 10 more top-10s and less than a handful of results outside the top 20 and Harvick was easily the best overall value for fantasy players.

Hunt Brothers Pizza is expanding its partnership with Stewart-Haas Racing (SHR) to include a four-race sponsorship of Kevin Harvick in the NASCAR XFINITY Series.

Hunt Brothers Pizza has been involved with SHR since 2014, serving as an associate sponsor of Harvick and the No. 4 Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series team while also being the official pizza of SHR. As SHR expands its operation into the XFINITY Series for the first time in 2017, Hunt Brothers Pizza will be the primary sponsor of Harvick’s No. 41 Ford Mustang April 8 at Texas Motor Speedway in Fort Worth, May 27 at Charlotte (N.C.) Motor Speedway, July 7 at Kentucky Speedway in Sparta and Sept. 2 at Darlington (S.C.) Raceway. Hunt Brothers Pizza will also serve as an associate sponsor of SHR’s No. 00 Ford Mustang driven by XFINITY Series rookie-of-the-year contender Cole Custer.-True Speed Communication

Kevin Harvick has been at his best during the past three years at Phoenix International Raceway with an average finish of 1.67 in six starts.

Harvick won four of those six races and had another victory in fall 2013. When he missed Victory Lane, it was not by much and he is currently riding a seven-race streak of top-fives. Unfortunately, he was in a must win situation last fall to advance to the Chase finale when he had his worst result in more than three years; Harvick finished a "disappointing" fourth.

Jimmy Johns has extended its relationship with Stewart-Haas Racing for a "multi-year" primary sponsorship on Kevin Harvick’s No. 4 Chevrolet, according to a press release from SHR.

The sponsorship will kick off in 2017 with the Daytona 500 and includes 15 other races. Jimmy Johns will be an associate sponsor for the rest of the season. Money equals speed.

Kevin Harvick finished third in the Ford EcoBoost 400 at Homestead-Miami Speedway after leading 79 of 268 laps. He led early after earning the pole on Friday.

Harvick was out to prove he could be as strong as the Chase contenders despite failing to advance to the finale. He did just that by outrunning all but one of the Championship Four. It was his third straight top-five on this course and he will be a force with which to reckon next November if he is still in Chase contention.

Kevin Harvick posted a speed of 177.637 mph and will lead the Ford EcoBoost 400 field to green Sunday at Homestead-Miami Speedway.

This is Harvick’s first pole at Homestead. He has a pair of fifth-place efforts as his high water mark with the most recent coming in 2014. He won the race and the championship that year. He is one of the favorites among non-Chasers to win this week.

Kevin Harvick entered the Can-Am 500 needing to win in order to advance to the Championship finale; he finished fourth.

For the first time since the implementation of the knockout-style format, Harvick fails to advance to the next level. While two years might not seem like a deep data pool, he has survived 13 elimination rounds and often needed to win in order to advance. Harvick’s fourth-place finish at Phoenix was the seventh consecutive top-five on this track and it earned a ton of fantasy points. Pride is on the line next week, and Harvick will try to win the Ford 400 and stop the winning streak of current Chasers.

After failing inspection for a third time at Texas Motor Speedway last week, Kevin Harvick, Carl Edwards, Tony Stewart, and Martin Truex Jr. will miss 15 minutes of practice time at Phoenix International Raceway.

Edwards is already locked into the finale for the Chase Championship. Tony Stewart and Martin Truex Jr. are not in Chase contention, so this penalty will hurt Harvick the most. With five victories in his last six races on this track, he is probably not overly concerned about his baseline setup, however.

Kevin Harvick has earned six victories and two runner-up finishes in his last nine Phoenix International Raceway starts.

The question has to be asked: "How long will this perfection last?" All streaks come to an end at some point, but fantasy players should feel confident that Harvick will not simply drop to the back of the pack. If he scores another top-five he will be a good vale and it seems likely the only thing that would keep that from happening is an accident or mechanical failure.

Kevin Harvick finished sixth in the AAA 500 at Texas Motor Speedway, but after contact with Austin Dillon in the late stages of the race it could be a pyrrhic top-10.

Harvick raced Dillon hard near the end of the AAA 500 and took the air off his spoiler. Dillon wiggled in front of the No. 4, was contacted, and hit the wall. On the way to the garage, his crew chief mentioned how much more Harvick had to lose at Phoenix. While it is unlikely that Dillon will purposefully wreck the 4, he will certainly race him hard if he has the opportunity. Harvick is 18 points behind the cutoff and practically in a must-win situation.

Kevin Harvick posted the fastest single lap in Friday’s practice for the AAA Texas 500 at Texas Motor Speedway with a lap of 196.685 mph.

Harvick led a contingent of four Chase contenders in the top four, which could make for an interesting battle on Sunday. Harvick is not typically known as a strong qualifier, but he started on the outside pole in both of last year’s races en route to top-three results. Harvick qualified 22nd this spring and finished 10th.

Kevin Harvick stumbled ever so slightly in the spring Duck Commander 500 with a 10th after scoring three consecutive top-fives at Texas Motor Speedway.

Harvick finished second in back-to-back races in fall 2014 and spring 2015. He was third last fall, but his need for a victory this week might prove to be an unwanted distraction. Look for a top-10 result, but save him for Phoenix if you really want to maximize his potential for victory.

In addition to driving his regular No. 4 Chevrolet SS in Sunday's Sprint Cup Series AAA 500 at Texas Motor Speedway, Kevin Harvick will be back behind the wheel of the JR Motorsports No. 88 Hunt Brothers Pizza Chevrolet Camaro in the NASCAR XFINITY Series (NXS) O'Reilly Auto Parts Challenge on Saturday afternoon.

Harvick has five wins in 18 NASCAR XFINITY Series starts at TMS, as well as nine top-five and 15 top-10 finishes. This weekend marks Harvick’s final start for JRM. Over the span of three seasons, Harvick has accumulated 33 NXS starts for JRM, with six wins, 18 top-five and 28 top-10 finishes.-JRM
