The bad news is that Kevin Harvick scored his second-worst finish of the season when he crossed under the checkers in the Coca-Cola 600 at Charlotte Motor Speedway. The good news, that was still enough for his 11th top-10 in the first 12 races of this season.
Harvick spent enough time in the lead that he was one of the top earners in the NASCAR Fantasy Live game and other contests that offer more than just finishing points. His Charlotte finish was also impacted by the fact that at least four drivers ahead of him achieved their position through a fuel mileage gamble. May 25 - 10:00 AM

Kevin Harvick finished second in last year’s all-star race to Jamie McMurray. He needs to improve by only one position to score his second win in this prestigious event.

Harvick’s other all-star win came in 2007, which was notably preceded by a second the previous season. As strong as he’s been on similarly-configured, 1.5-mile tracks in 2015—with first- or second-place results in all four races—he should be considered a favorite Saturday night.
May 14 - 10:02 PM

Kevin Harvick had one of the dominant cars in the SpongeBob 400 at Kansas Speedway, but he was unable to catch Jimmie Johnson in the closing laps and was forced to settle for second.

This was his 11th top-two finish in the last 14 races. He may not have won, but he remains one of the best values in any fantasy game and is a place-and-hold driver.
May 10 - 1:16 AM

Kevin Harvick posted the fastest single lap in the first practice session for the SpongeBob 400. His top speed was 190.772 mph.

Harvick enters the weekend as the pole winner of the last three races at Kansas Speedway. His pole in fall 2013 came before a victory. Last spring he finished second but slipped to 12th last fall.
May 8 - 1:31 PM

Kevin Harvick survived a lap-48 accident and held on to finish eighth in the Geico 500 at Talladega SuperSpeedway.

That was his 12th top-10 finish in the past 13 races dating back to last fall’s AAA Texas 500. The only times he failed to finish first or second in that span came on the short tracks of Martinsville Speedway (eighth) and Bristol Motor Speedway, and now the superspeedway of Talladega—all of which are considered wild card courses.
May 3 - 7:17 PM

Kevin Harvick fell outside of the top five at the three-quarter mark of the Toyota Owners 400, but he battled back at the end of the race and finished second to his teammate Kurt Busch.

Harvick led only two laps—both under caution—but he was in contact with the leaders most of the day. He remains a place-and-hold driver for the foreseeable future.
Apr 26 - 4:32 PM

Kevin Harvick posted the quickest time in the final practice session for the Toyota Owners 400. His top speed of 122.212 mph was set from laps five through 14.

Harvick’s incredible start to the 2015 season took a momentary hit at Bristol when he crashed in the aftermath of the Jimmie Johnson/Jeb Burton kerfuffle, but there is no way that is going to stall his momentum.
Apr 24 - 3:16 PM

Kevin Harvick recorded the quickest 10-lap average in the final practice session for the Food City 500 with a speed of 125.934 mph from laps 35 through 44.

Harvick was seventh fastest in terms of single laps in that session, but he has been uniformly strong all weekend. He remains a favorite for Sunday and should keep his current top-10 streak alive at the very least.
Apr 18 - 12:43 PM

Kevin Harvick posted the quickest 10-lap average in the second practice session for the Food City 500 with a speed of 125.725 mph from laps two through 11.

Harvick also had the second-fastest single lap at 126.395 mph. He qualified fourth and has a great balance of early speed and durability. He is heavily favored to score his first Bristol top-five in the last 13 races on this track. His most recent triumph was a fourth in the 2008 Sharpie 500.
Apr 18 - 10:56 AM

Sprint Cup regular Kevin Harvick has the best 10-lap consecutive average speed in the XFINITY Series final practice for the Drive To Stop Diabetes 300 at Bristol Motor Speedway.

The average speed of 121.468 mph in the No. 88 Chevrolet Camaro was best of the 26 cars that ran 10 consecutive laps on the track for this final practice session. No. 54 Denny Hamlin, No. 60 Chris Buescher, No. 2 Brian Scott and No. 20 Erik Jones are the rest of the top five on this list.
Apr 17 - 5:05 PM

Kevin Harvick mounted a determined charge in the closing laps and finished second to Jimmie Johnson in the Duck Commander 500 at Texas Motor Speedway. It was his ninth top-two finish in the last 10 races dating back to his second-place finish in last year’s AAA Texas 500.

No matter what game a fantasy owner is playing, Harvick continues to be one of the best values. Players can place-and-hold him without any concerns so long as he continues to finish in the top five.
Apr 11 - 11:41 PM

When Austin Dillon failed to finish the STP 500, Kevin Harvick took over the top spot in terms of the longest active running streak. He has been on track at the end of his last 35 attempts.

Thirty of the 35 races ended on the lead lap, which is a contributory factor to his strong results. Not that any fantasy owner needed more incentive, but Harvick remains one of the top picks in every type of game.
Apr 10 - 7:46 PM

Kevin Harvick’s streak of top-two finishes at the beginning of the season made him the runaway favorite and a great value regardless of his high salary cap. Until he stops earning maximum points, he will remain a staple on most fantasy rosters.

The key to success in regard to Harvick is going to be determining exactly when to drop him. He cannot sustain this momentum forever and top-15 results will make him a poor value while salary cap formulas adjust. Of course, it is reasonable to assume he could continue to finish in the top 10 well through the all-star break at Charlotte in May.
Apr 7 - 9:37 PM

Kevin Harvick’s streak of top-two finishes came to an end at Martinsville. He ran that well in his last eight races, but failed to crack the top five in Sunday’s STP 500. He finished eighth.

Harvick challenged for the victory much of the afternoon and led the most laps at 154. Considering that Martinsville is his third-worst track in terms of average finishes, he had a much better performance than his statistics would indicate and remains the hottest driver on the circuit.
Mar 29 - 8:40 PM

Kevin Harvick passed teammate Kurt Busch a few hundred yards shy of the finish line and crossed under the checkers second. This is his eighth consecutive first- or second-place finish as his incredible season continues.

Next week’s venue at Martinsville is not one of Harvick’s better tracks, but until he finishes outside of the top five, he deserves a slot on most fantasy rosters.
