Kevin Harvick finished third in the Ford EcoBoost 400 at Homestead-Miami Speedway after leading 79 of 268 laps. He led early after earning the pole on Friday.

Harvick was out to prove he could be as strong as the Chase contenders despite failing to advance to the finale. He did just that by outrunning all but one of the Championship Four. It was his third straight top-five on this course and he will be a force with which to reckon next November if he is still in Chase contention.
Nov 20 - 9:22 PM

Kevin Harvick posted a speed of 177.637 mph and will lead the Ford EcoBoost 400 field to green Sunday at Homestead-Miami Speedway.

This is Harvick’s first pole at Homestead. He has a pair of fifth-place efforts as his high water mark with the most recent coming in 2014. He won the race and the championship that year. He is one of the favorites among non-Chasers to win this week.

Kevin Harvick entered the Can-Am 500 needing to win in order to advance to the Championship finale; he finished fourth.

For the first time since the implementation of the knockout-style format, Harvick fails to advance to the next level. While two years might not seem like a deep data pool, he has survived 13 elimination rounds and often needed to win in order to advance. Harvick’s fourth-place finish at Phoenix was the seventh consecutive top-five on this track and it earned a ton of fantasy points. Pride is on the line next week, and Harvick will try to win the Ford 400 and stop the winning streak of current Chasers.

After failing inspection for a third time at Texas Motor Speedway last week, Kevin Harvick, Carl Edwards, Tony Stewart, and Martin Truex Jr. will miss 15 minutes of practice time at Phoenix International Raceway.

Edwards is already locked into the finale for the Chase Championship. Tony Stewart and Martin Truex Jr. are not in Chase contention, so this penalty will hurt Harvick the most. With five victories in his last six races on this track, he is probably not overly concerned about his baseline setup, however.

Kevin Harvick has earned six victories and two runner-up finishes in his last nine Phoenix International Raceway starts.

The question has to be asked: "How long will this perfection last?" All streaks come to an end at some point, but fantasy players should feel confident that Harvick will not simply drop to the back of the pack. If he scores another top-five he will be a good vale and it seems likely the only thing that would keep that from happening is an accident or mechanical failure.

Kevin Harvick finished sixth in the AAA 500 at Texas Motor Speedway, but after contact with Austin Dillon in the late stages of the race it could be a pyrrhic top-10.

Harvick raced Dillon hard near the end of the AAA 500 and took the air off his spoiler. Dillon wiggled in front of the No. 4, was contacted, and hit the wall. On the way to the garage, his crew chief mentioned how much more Harvick had to lose at Phoenix. While it is unlikely that Dillon will purposefully wreck the 4, he will certainly race him hard if he has the opportunity. Harvick is 18 points behind the cutoff and practically in a must-win situation.

Kevin Harvick posted the fastest single lap in Friday’s practice for the AAA Texas 500 at Texas Motor Speedway with a lap of 196.685 mph.

Harvick led a contingent of four Chase contenders in the top four, which could make for an interesting battle on Sunday. Harvick is not typically known as a strong qualifier, but he started on the outside pole in both of last year’s races en route to top-three results. Harvick qualified 22nd this spring and finished 10th.
Nov 4 - 2:02 PM

Kevin Harvick stumbled ever so slightly in the spring Duck Commander 500 with a 10th after scoring three consecutive top-fives at Texas Motor Speedway.

Harvick finished second in back-to-back races in fall 2014 and spring 2015. He was third last fall, but his need for a victory this week might prove to be an unwanted distraction. Look for a top-10 result, but save him for Phoenix if you really want to maximize his potential for victory.
Nov 3 - 7:57 PM

In addition to driving his regular No. 4 Chevrolet SS in Sunday's Sprint Cup Series AAA 500 at Texas Motor Speedway, Kevin Harvick will be back behind the wheel of the JR Motorsports No. 88 Hunt Brothers Pizza Chevrolet Camaro in the NASCAR XFINITY Series (NXS) O'Reilly Auto Parts Challenge on Saturday afternoon.

Harvick has five wins in 18 NASCAR XFINITY Series starts at TMS, as well as nine top-five and 15 top-10 finishes. This weekend marks Harvick’s final start for JRM. Over the span of three seasons, Harvick has accumulated 33 NXS starts for JRM, with six wins, 18 top-five and 28 top-10 finishes.-JRM

Kevin Harvick posted a lap of 97.048 mph and failed to advance to the final round of qualification for the Goody's Fast Relief 500 at Martinsville Speedway with only the 20th-fastest time.

Harvick was the slowest Chase contender in the first practice session and he was never able to overcome the lack of speed. Harvick does not typically qualify well on short, flat tracks, but he should be able to use strategy to get a top-10. If that happens, he will add at least 10 place-differential points to his total.
Oct 28 - 5:32 PM

Kevin Harvick posted the slowest time among the Chase contenders in Friday’s practice session for the Goody's Fast Relief 500 at Martinsville Speedway with a speed of 97.608 mph.

That put his .111 second behind the leader Kyle Larson. While that might now sound like much, it made him the 19th-fastest driver among 40 who recorded a speed. Harvick is not known as a strong qualifier, but he should race well enough to finish in the top 10. He will be a good value once place-differential points are added in, but he will not record the top-five needed to make him worthy of his salary cap.
Oct 28 - 1:13 PM

Kevin Harvick has four recent top-10s at Martinsville Speedway, but he has not finished in the top five since 2011.

It is hard to say Harvick will not be a good value this week, but there are certainly better opportunities to start him. Texas Motor Speedway and Phoenix International Raceway are next up on the schedule and the No. 4 has been stellar on similarly-configured, 1.5-mile tracks to recommend him in the Lone Star State. His record at Phoenix is—well simply spectacular.

Kevin Harvick finished seventh in the Hellmann's 500 at Talladega SuperSpeedway after starting the afternoon 22nd.

Harvick had a decision to make at the end of the race that might have radically altered his outcome and that of many drivers in the field. Denny Hamlin entered the race needing to finish significantly better than several drivers on the cusp of the top eight in points and put himself in a bad situation with Harvick on the frontstretch. Harvick lifted when Hamlin tried to cut him off and lost several positions in the final run to the checkers as a result.
Oct 23 - 7:58 PM

Kevin Harvick posted the slowest speed in qualification for the Hellmann's 500 at Talladega SuperSpeedway with the 22nd-fastest speed of 190.768 mph in the first round.

Harvick knows it is not where you start, but where one finishes at Talladega. He has qualified 24th or worse four times in his past six attempts on this track before sweeping the top 15. His best improvement was a ninth-place finish in October 2014 after starting 39th.
