Kevin Harvick finished fifth in Sunday’s Advance Auto Parts.
Harvick was a much bigger factor than his fifth-place result suggests. He hooked up with fellow Ford drivers (and doesn’t that sound odd after all his years in a Chevrolet) to push Brad Keselowski and Joey Logano to the front. Keselowski’s contact with Denny Hamlin on the last lap broke the lead pack’s momentum, however, and Harvick was unable to capitalize on his new-found track position. Feb 19 - 1:39 PM

Kevin Harvick’s recent record at Daytona International Speedway may best highlight the difficulty of handicapping restrictor-plate, superspeedway races. He has three top-fives bookended by a pair of 39ths.

Harvick finished 39th in July 2014 and again in last year’s Coke Zero 400. In between, he had a second in the 2015 Daytona 500 followed by two other fourth-place results. Crash damage contributed to his two bad results.

Busch Beer returns to Kevin Harvick’s No. 4 Ford Fusion for the Advanced Auto Parts Clash at Daytona – the 75-lap, bonus-points-paying race that kicks off the 2017 NASCAR Cup Series season Feb. 18.

Harvick has three wins in the Clash at Daytona – 2009, 2010 and 2013 – tying him for second-most with his team owner Tony Stewart and NASCAR Hall of Famer Dale Jarrett. In the 2009 Clash, Harvick survived an incident-filled race that saw a record eight caution periods and less than half the starting field make it to the checkered flag. The following year, he joined Neil Bonnett, Ken Schrader and Stewart as the fourth driver in event history to win consecutive races. In his 2013 win, Harvick led 40 of 75 laps, dominating the second and third segments en route to his third Clash at Daytona victory in five years.-TSC

Kevin Harvick has a three-year average finish of 7.0 at Richmond, which makes him the third-best driver in that span on this course.

Harvick has four top-fives and a worst result of 14th on this track. He has also been stellar at Phoenix International Raceway and New Hampshire Motor Speedway, which qualifies him as a great short, flat track driver. These three tracks host six of the 36 races.

Kevin Harvick has the second-best, three-year average finish among active fulltime drivers at Kansas Speedway with a 5.83.

This is one of the 10-best driver/track pairings in the past three years. Harvick’s three years on this track have been highlighted by three poles, two victories, and three second-place finishes. His other two results in that span fell outside the top 10.

Kevin Harvick has the best average finish at Phoenix International Raceway during the past three years. In fact, he has the best three-year average of any driver making more than two starts on any course in that span.

To say that Harvick has been dominant at Phoenix would be a gross understatement. He has won five of the last seven races at that track and has a perfect record of top-fives. That might actually make him a non-factor this March because almost everyone will have him activated and if he loses, those rosters will be unaffected. If he wins, however, it will certainly hurt to not have him on one’s roster.

Kevin Harvick and Brad Keselowski each have average finishes of 9.0 in their last six attempts at Charlotte Motor Speedway, which is the best in the field.

Harvick would have had sole possession of that honor and a much better average if not for a blown engine this fall that snapped a seven-race, top-10 streak. In that span of races, he won twice and finished in the runner-up position three times. Keselowski earned his average with consistent finishes of 16th or better, but only one top-five. He visited Victory Lane in 2013, however.

If NASCAR had awarded segment points in 2016 at the one-quarter and halfway marks, Kevin Harvick would have been the second-most productive throughout the season.

Harvick would have earned 337 bonus points for his running position at the one-quarter and halfway points with at least a top-10 position in 50 of 70 possible segments (including Homestead-Miami Speedway since most games will not change scoring, but excluding the Daytona 500). Four of his segment wins and the 10 points that went along with it would have come after the beginning of September. Of course, NASCAR did not award points and that would have changed team strategies, but this is one way to determine who was consistently among the leaders.

Kevin Harvick has the best average finish at Talladega among fulltime drivers marking more than two starts in the past three years.

While most tracks highlight drivers with average results of 10th or better in the past three years, Talladega plays by its own rules and consecutive top-10s are hard to achieve. Harvick has an average of only 1.17 in that span of events, which underscores just how much of a wild card this track can be.

Kevin Harvick has the third-best average finish among all active drivers during the past three years at Michigan International Speedway with a mark of 7.5 in six races.

Michigan does not host their first race until June, but the two-mile tracks are similar and this could bode well for Harvick at Auto Club Speedway where he has runner-up finishes in his last two starts.
Feb 5 - 2:10 PM

In the past three years, Kevin Harvick has scored 75 top-10s, which puts him second on this list and only one out of first.

During this span of races, Harvick has earned 54 top-fives, which ties him with Joey Logano for first on that chart. Harvick also has 12 victories in the last three seasons, which is two less than the leaders Logano and Jimmie Johnson. Harvick has been famously great at Phoenix International Raceway where he swept the top five in the past three years. He also has five top-10s on the similarly-configured, 1.5-mile Charlotte Motor Speedway and Texas Motor Speedways.

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.

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
