Kevin Harvick (#4 Budweiser/Jimmy John's Chevrolet SS) finished second in the November 22nd NASCAR Sprint Cup Series season-ending Ford EcoBoost 400 at Florida's Homestead-Miami Speedway.
The Stewart Haas Racing driver started 13th in the lineup and completed all laps of the 267-lap event (led 46 laps). Harvick, who competed in all of the season's 36 races, scored three wins (March 8th at Las Vegas Motor Speedway, March 15th at Phoenix and October 4th at Dover), one pole, 23 top-fives, 28 top-10s and closed out the season second in the final 2015 Sprint Cup Series driver championship standings.

Last year Kevin Harvick held off a determined Ryan Newman in a late-race shootout to win the 2014 Cup championship. This year the shoe was on the other foot as Harvick chased Kyle Busch across the line to finish second in both the race and the season-long battle.

Harvick had a rocky road making the final four, but he was one of the best fantasy values all season until the playoffs began. This was Harvick’s eighth consecutive Homestead top-10 and his fifth top-five during that span.

Jeff Gordon posted the fastest single lap in final practice for the Ford EcoBoost 400 at Homestead among Chase contenders with a speed of 173.321 mph. He was ninth fastest overall, followed by Martin Truex Jr. in 10th with a lap of 173.232 mph, 17th-fastest Kyle Busch at 171.418 mph, and 26th-fastest Kevin Harvick with a 169.972 mph lap.

While Harvick was slowest, he was running on older tires most of the race. He should easily run among the top 10 most of the afternoon and challenge for the victory. This year’s battle between the top four is more equal that it would appear based on the speed chart.

Kevin Harvick failed to advance to the final round of qualification for the Ford EcoBoost 400. With a lap of 175.444 mph, he will start Sunday’s race in 13th.

Harvick is not in much jeopardy overall, but he lost a moral victory of sorts. His three Championship contenders Kyle Busch, Jeff Gordon, and Martin Truex Jr. all advanced into the top 12.

Kevin Harvick posted the seventh-fastest lap in Friday’s rain-shortened practice with a speed of 173.550 mph, which was 0.283 seconds behind the leader Carl Edwards. That made him the second fastest Chase contender behind Martin Truex Jr.

Harvick won last year’s edition of this race after starting among the top 10, so he knows what he needs to feel in this car. He has been a favorite to finish in the top five all week and this confirms that prediction.

Kevin Harvick has been close to perfect at Homestead since the track added progressive banking in 2003. In 12 starts on this track, he failed to crack the top 10 only once and he is currently riding a seven-race streak of such finishes.

Harvick is the defending Cup champion and he won that honor by winning last year’s Ford 400. He certainly can repeat, but last year’s victory was his first top-five on this track in four years so that is far from certain.

Kevin Harvick dominated the Quicken Loans Race for Heroes 500 and would have most likely won his fifth straight Phoenix race if not for rain that soaked the track. His second-place finish is his seventh such finish in the past eight races there, however.

Harvick scored the most points in most games because of his domination, but more importantly he will head to Homestead with a chance to defend his 2014 title. Last year he won both of the last two races to claim the Cup.

Kevin Harvick lost two tires to punctures and had to run the last 100 laps with one hand on a shifter that was trying to pop out of fourth, but when the checkers waved, he finished the AAA Texas 500 in third.

Harvick sits comfortably in the points with a 10-point advantage over the cutoff point, but he also has a great opportunity to win at Phoenix International Raceway since he enters with four consecutive victories on that track. Fantasy owners should use ink to place him on their final-four roster at Homestead-Miami Speedway.
Nov 8 - 6:23 PM

NBC’s Nate Ryan reported from the track that three Chase drivers, Brad Keselowski, Joey Logano, and Kevin Harvick, each sit on three penalties for failing inspection. If they earn a fourth penalty, they will lose pit stall selection at the next track, which could come either at Phoenix International Raceway or Homestead-Miami Speedway.

Keselowski has already incurred this penalty once and it was probably part of the reason he was not in contention for the victory at Kansas Speedway. Dale Earnhardt Jr. has incurred that penalty this week at Texas Motor Speedway and fantasy owners want to watch for the impact. Keselowski and Logano specifically need to be in contention to win given how deep in the points they are.
Nov 7 - 2:10 PM

Kevin Harvick will start the AAA Texas 500 in exactly the same spot that he ended the Duck Commander 500. He qualified second to Brad Keselowski this week and finished second to Jimmie Johnson this spring.

Harvick has a good chance to win but another solid run is his primary goal. He will be a great value in any game.

Sprint Cup regular (#4 Chevrolet SS) Kevin Harvick had the best 10-lap consecutive average speed in the only practice for the XFINITY Series O’Reilly Auto Parts Challenge at Texas Motor Speedway.

His average of 179.317 mph in the No. 88 Hunt Brothers Pizza Chevrolet Camaro was best of the 14 cars that ran 10 consecutive laps on the track for this session. #7 Regan Smith, #33 Austin Dillon, #2 Brian Scott, #9 Chase Elliott, #54 Kyle Busch, #42 Kyle Larson, #20 Erik Jones, #3 Ty Dillon and #62 Brendan Gaughan are the rest of the top-10 on this list.
Nov 6 - 5:05 PM

Kevin Harvick posted the second fastest lap in the first practice session for the AAA Texas 500 with a top speed of 196.421 mph, which was 0.089 seconds slower than the leader Brad Keselowski.

Notably, Harvick has finished second in his last two Texas Motor Speedway races. He does not need to win this week to advance to the next round of the playoffs but he is in a good position to do just that. If he is on one’s fantasy roster, he should remain there through the end of the season.
Nov 6 - 2:27 PM

Kevin Harvick is one of four drivers who enter the AAA Texas 500 with back-to-back top-fives on this track. He finished second to Jimmie Johnson in both events.

Harvick and Johnson are joined by Brad Keselowski with a third last fall and a fifth this spring and Kyle Busch who swept the top-five in 2014 before missing this spring’s race.

Kevin Harvick sustained damage exiting pit road late in the Goody's Headache Relief Shot 500 at Martinsville Speedway and he had to make multiple stops. Ultimately, he surged forward again and finished eighth to become the fourth-best Chaser.

Harvick led laps and challenged for the win for a while. He has a great shot at winning Phoenix International Raceway in a couple of weeks and should enter the Ford 400 with a chance to win the championship.
Nov 1 - 10:15 PM

Kevin Harvick posted the best 10-lap average in Friday’s practice for the Goody's Headache Relief Shot 500 at Martinsville Speedway. His top speed of 95.762 mph was recorded from his laps eight through 17.

Harvick qualified 12th and he is going to need this long-run speed to get to the front and overcome any deficits in the pits. He should be well-regarded to finish in the top 10.
