Kevin Harvick finished third in the Sylvania 300 and is a virtual lock to advance to the Contender round. He has a 41-point advantage over 13th-place in the standings and needs only about a top-35 finish to continue in the Chase.
Harvick had one of the strongest cars all weekend. He led the most laps and was never in serious jeopardy of falling out of the top five. Equally important, the team had flawless pit stops and that will alleviate some of their worry entering Dover. Sep 21 - 7:51 PM

Kevin Harvick posted the quickest 10-lap average in final practice for the Sylvania 300 with a speed of 134.465 mph from his 28th to 37th laps on the track.

His fastest lap in that session was a third-best 135.236 mph, which gives him a good balance of speed and durability. The battle for the New Hampshire trophy will most likely come down to Harvick, Brad Keselowski, and Jeff Gordon because they also had top-three fastest laps and 10-lap averages.

Kevin Harvick qualified third for the Sylvania 300 and looks to carry the momentum of back-to-back top-fives at Chicagoland and Richmond into New Hampshire.

Harvick was also fast in the Saturday morning session with the fourth-fastest lap at the 45-minute mark. He was running second to Brad Keselowski this summer in New Hampshire’s first race before he ran out of gas on the final restart.

Because of the high volume of mistakes by his crew, Kevin Harvick swapped with Tony Stewart before the MyAFibStory.com 400. It did not keep the No. 4 from being error-free as they left lugnuts loose during an early-race pit stop. Harvick was forced to pit twice under caution and dropped to the back of the lead lap.

Fortunately, the incident occurred early enough in the race that Harvick had plenty of time to overcome it and he finished fifth, but the fallibility of this team remains an open question and that will impact his fantasy handicap and likelihood that he will advance through all three rounds of the Chase.

In addition to his familiar No. 4 Jimmy John’s Chevrolet SS for Stewart-Haas Racing in the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series, Kevin Harvick will pilot a similarly-designed No. 5 Jimmy John’s Chevrolet Camaro in Saturday’s Jimmy John’s Freaky Fast 300 Nationwide Series race at Chicagoland Speedway.

Harvick’s third-place run at Richmond last week gave him his 22nd consecutive top-10 finish in Nationwide Series competition dating back to 2013. It’s the second-longest top-10 streak of Harvick’s career, as he previously went 23 races in 2006-07.-JR Motorsports

Kevin Harvick was expected to be one of the challengers for the victory Saturday night at Richmond International Raceway. He was the only driver other than Brad Keselowski to lead laps in the Federated Auto Parts 400, but the team lost the handle in the second half and he had to fight hard for a fifth-place finish.

The hidden good news is that neither the driver nor crew made any big mistakes. Points matter once more during the Chase and Harvick needs to record consistently strong finishes to contend. If he can do that, he will be a good fantasy value as well.

Kevin Harvick will race Chassis No. 846 this week at Richmond. Its last outing ended in a second-place finish at Pocono in August.

This chassis also scored a 39th at Bristol following an accident and 17th at Dover with a flat tire. Speed and handling have not been Harvick’s issue this year, but he must have a mistake- or incident-free race to capitalize on the chassis’ strength.

Kevin Harvick posted the fastest single lap in a marathon, three-hour practice session. His top speed was 129.112 mph, which was set early on lap two.

Nearly everyone posted their fastest laps early while the track still had a lot of grip from morning temps and rain on Thursday. This session was much longer than normal because NASCAR and Goodyear are using a new compound.

No one would deny the speed that Kevin Harvick has had all season, but his results have been hit-or-miss—mostly because of mistakes. At Richmond this spring, he ran an error-free race, but still missed outside the top 10.

Harvick has not been at his best on short tracks this year with only one top-10 finish and no top-15s. He backed up his 11th at Richmond with an 11th at Bristol, but that latest position was determined by a pit road speeding penalty.

Sprint Cup regular (No. 4 Chevrolet SS) Kevin Harvick will return to Richmond in JRM's No. 5 Chevrolet Camaro looking to mirror his Nationwide Series spring performance at the three-quarter-mile track.

It was then (April 25) when Harvick led 202 of the final 203 laps en route to his seventh victory at RIR. Harvick’s effort earned a perfect 150.0 Driver Rating according to NASCAR’s Loop Data. Harvick leads all drivers with seven wins, 17 top-five and 20 top-10 finishes in Nationwide Series competition at Richmond. His April performance at the track propelled him past Mark Martin for the most laps led (1,387).-JR Motorsports

Sprint Cup regular (No. 4 Chevrolet SS) Kevin Harvick wins the Great Clips 300, his 43rd victory in 312 NASCAR Nationwide Series races.

This is the No. 5 Chevrolet Camaro driver's third NNS victory and 11th top-10 finish in 2014. It is his third victory and 10th top-10 finish in 13 NNS races at Atlanta. The win was Harvick's second consecutive Nationwide Series victory at Atlanta Motor Speedway.

Kevin Harvick recorded the second-fastest single lap and the second-quickest 10-lap average in the second practice session for the Oral-B USA 500. His fastest lap was 188.328 mph and his average speed was 180.796 mph.

Harvick mentioned Jeff Gordon as his principal rival for the weekend and was nearly .75 miles per hour slower than the No. 24. Restarts, pit stops, and the pace of the race will equalize that discrepancy, however, and these two drivers should battle side-by-side.

With a lap of 190.398 mph, Kevin Harvick earned his sixth pole of the season. Starting up front has been a good omen for this driver. Four of his previous five poles this year ended in top-10 finishes, including a victory at Darlington and second-place finishes at Kansas and Michigan.

Harvick will need an error-free race to finish that well again. Last week he won the pole for the Irwin Tools Night Race at Bristol, but a late-race penalty for speeding on pit road kept him from finishing in the top 10.
