Defending NASCAR Sprint Cup Series champion Kevin Harvick has been named the recipient of the NMPA's Richard Petty Driver of the Year Award for 2014.
The award, which has been presented each year since 1969, is determined by a vote of the National Motorsports Press Association membership. Harvick, driver of the No. 4 Chevrolet for Stewart-Haas Racing, was presented the trophy by the award's namesake, seven-time premier series champion Richard Petty, during the annual NMPA Awards Dinner Sunday night. It is the second time Harvick has been honored with the Richard Petty Driver of the Year award. Elevated to Cup competition following the 2001 death of seven-time champion Dale Earnhardt, Harvick responded by winning twice and finishing ninth in points in Cup while also winning the Busch (now XFINITY) Series Jan 26 - 1:36 PM

Kevin Harvick charged from 12th to the lead with 15 laps remaining and won the Ford EcoBoost 400 at Homestead-Miami Speedway. With his fifth victory of the season, he also won the NASCAR Sprint Cup championship.

For most of the race, all four Chase contending drivers raced among the top 10—usually the top six. NASCAR could not have asked for a better end to their inaugural playoff style Chase.

Kevin Harvick posted the fastest single lap in the Saturday morning's practice session for the Ford EcoBoost 400 at Homestead-Miami Speedway. He posted a lap of 175.069 mph.

Harvick starts fifth for Sunday’s race, which puts him close enough the lead to be able to make good use of that speed. This was the second practice in which he was the fastest Chaser and he is sending a message that he is the driver to beat for the championship.

Kevin Harvick posted the fastest lap in qualification for the Ford 400. His top speed was 179.946 mph and the No. 4 will roll off the grid fifth.

The Ford 400 will be as much mental as a representation of speed and Harvick has drawn first blood, especially in light of his fast time in Friday’s first practice.

Kevin Harvick posted the fastest single lap among the Chase contenders in the first practice session for the Ford EcoBoost 400. His top speed was 178.950 mph.

Harvick is one of the drivers who like to play psychological games with the competition and posting fast laps is one way to send a message. So long as he can keep this positive metal attitude, he will be relaxed and fast on Sunday.

Kevin Harvick has been one of the most consistently strong drivers at Homestead in the past six years. In that span of time, he has not failed to crack the top 10 and has three top-fives.

About the only thing negative that can be said about Harvick is that his last three efforts ended in top-10s. In order to contend for the championship, he is going to have to challenge for the victory or at least at top-five. He has finished second twice on this track with the most recent occurrence coming in 2008.

Kevin Harvick needed to win the Quicken Loans Race for Heroes 500k to advance to the Final Four at Homestead. He did exactly what he had to do by leading 264 of 312 laps and driving away from the field in the closing laps.

That was Harvick’s fourth win in the past five Phoenix races. It is rare that fantasy players had such an obvious favorite at the beginning of a race, which actually minimized Harvick’s usefulness since most players had him activated.

Kevin Harvick posted both the fastest single lap and the quickest average lap in Saturday morning’s practice session. In final practice, he was second fastest and had the quickest 10-lap average.

Does anything else really need to be said at this point? Start Harvick.

In addition to posting the fastest single lap in Saturday morning’s practice session, Kevin Harvick also had the quickest 10-lap average. He posted a speed of 137.836 mph from his laps two through 11.

A good starting position plus a fast single lap plus good long-run speed is going to be hard to beat. All signs continue to point to him being a favorite at Phoenix for the Quicken Loans Race for Heroes 500k.

Kevin Harvick posted the single fastest lap in the second practice session for the Quicken Loans 500k at Phoenix International Raceway. His fastest lap was 138.403 mph.

Harvick qualified third and should be able to put that speed to use in the opening laps. Harvick dominated the spring event and is nearly everyone’s favorite to do so again this fall.

Kevin Harvick posted the single fastest single lap in the first practice session for the Quicken Loans Race for Heroes 500k. His top speed was 141.521 mph.

Harvick was already considered one of this week’s favorites and this fast lap does nothing to change that perception. Harvick essentially must win to advance to the Championship round and he is going to be highly focused on Sunday.
Fri, Nov 7, 2014 03:03:00 PM

With three victories and a second-place finish in the past five races at Phoenix, Kevin Harvick should be considered the top-ranked driver entering this week’s Quicken Loans 500k.

Two of Harvick’s victories came in back-to-back races last fall and this spring. No one brings more momentum to the track, especially in light of last week’s second at Texas.

Kevin Harvick finished second in the AAA Texas 500 and now sits only six points behind the elimination bubble. With Jimmie Johnson’s victory, at least three drivers will qualify for the Championship race via their points’ standings.

Harvick did almost everything he needed to advance. He challenged for the lead most the evening and recorded the second-best average running position of 3.697. He now heads to Phoenix, which was a track he dominated this spring.

Kevin Harvick is scheduled to make his 500th career NASCAR Sprint Cup Series (NSCS) start in Sunday’s AAA Texas 500 race at Texas Motor Speedway (TMS).

In the midst of his 14th season in the series, Harvick has earned 26 wins, 111 top fives, 226 top-10 finishes and 14 pole awards. This weekend the No. 4 Budweiser Chevrolet SS will feature a special 500th start logo on the hood, under the right taillight and on the base of the b-post in recognition of the milestone. In addition, the hashtag #TexasToast appears on the car’s decklid.-Elevation Group PR

Kevin Harvick is another driver, along with Brad Keselowski and Carl Edwards, who effectively need a victory to advance to the Championship round of the playoffs. He won the most recent event on this track type at Charlotte.

Harvick blew an engine early in the Duck Commander 500 this spring and that came on the heels of a 41st-place finish at Vegas. Since then, he has finished worse than 12th only one time in the last seven similarly-configured, 1.5-mile track races.
