Chase contending drivers swept the top-nine positions in the second practice session for the Bad Boy Off Road 300 at New Hampshire Motor Speedway. Their speed was separated by only 0.111 seconds.

The top of the field is incredibly tight from a tie for the fastest lap at 28.814 seconds to ninth-place Kevin Harvick’s 28.925 second trip around the track that equates to 131.678 mph. Last week, 13 of 16 Chasers finished 16th or better at Chicagoland and their dominance with continue at New Hampshire.

All three of the Stewart-Haas Racing Chase contenders advanced to round two of qualification for the Bad Boy Off Road 300 at New Hampshire. None of them moved to the next level.

Kurt Busch in 13th with a lap of 134.359 mph came closest. Kevin Harvick qualified 19th at 133.717, with Tony Stewart 23rd at 132.328. Harvick went back out and his car simply would not grip through the corner. Stewart did not even attempt to take a late-session time.

Fantasy owners may find the decision of whether to start or park Kevin Harvick this week to be a difficult one. His struggles last year at Chicagoland led to a mistake at New Hampshire Motor Speedway the following week and he’s coming off another frustrating performance this week.

Strictly by his 2016 numbers, he is a favorite to finish in the top five, however. He won at Phoenix International Raceway this spring and has three consecutive top-fives on the short, flat tracks of Richmond International Raceway and New Hampshire Motor Speedway. The ultimate decision might well come down to finances, however, because he is the most expensive driver in virtually every salary cap contest

When an errant tire from Aric Almirola rolled into the grass at Chicagoland Speedway during a green flag cycle of pit stops for the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles 400, it caught Jimmie Johnson and Kevin Harvick on pit road. During the race out, Johnson was one inch ahead of the leader Martin Truex Jr. at the finish line. Harvick aborted his stop at two tires, but was one inch behind at the line. That cost them a lap when he came back onto pit road to take the other two tires. Harvick could never recover and finished 20th.

Harvick fell to 14th in the standings from fourth at the start of the race. The team did not panic, which was important. They continued to pit with the leaders and never attempted a risky move like taking a wave around. Ultimately that did not play in their favor, but sticking with their game plan will almost certainly pay dividends at New Hampshire Motor Speedway this week. Fantasy owners should not panic either.

Kevin Harvick felt something was wrong during the second practice session for the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles 400 at Chicagoland Speedway, but that did not show up on the average speed chart. He posted the quickest 10-lap average in that session with a 182.250 mph in his first 10 laps on the track.

Harvick is one of only two drivers to sweep the top 10 on similarly-configured, 1.5-mile tracks. He has earned top-10 points in almost every race on every track type in 2016. If a player can afford him, he should be started this week.

Kevin Harvick halted practice with about seven minutes remaining, complaining that "things don’t feel right." He was 16th on the speed chart at the time with a lap of 183.924 mph.

Harvick was reportedly near the top of the 10-lap chart when he halted practice. It was not immediately reported what he was experiencing, but it must have raised some concerns for him to miss more than one-10th of this session.

Kevin Harvick had to overcome a speeding penalty just before the halfway point of the Federated Auto Parts 400 at Richmond International Raceway to finish fifth.

Ironically, the penalty came one week after Harvick lashed out at his crew for a slow Darlington Raceway pit stop that caused him to reorganize his team. This was Harvick’s fifth consecutive oval top-five and most of his efforts in that span started deep in the field to insure he earned positive place-differential points.

Kevin Harvick dominated the Bojangles' Southern 500 at Darlington Raceway by leading 214 of 367 laps. He jumped out to a sizeable lead from the pole, but lost five or more spots in the pits on multiple occasions.

On the next to last caution, Harvick fell from third to seventh and was never quite able to make up the track position. Harvick was still the top points’ earner in most fantasy games, however, and that is what players are truly concerned with. After the race, Harvick lashed out at his pit crew. Morale cannot be very high among the over-the-wall crew.
Sep 4 - 10:38 PM

NASCAR announced that qualification for the Bojangles' Southern 500 would be canceled and the lineup would be set by the rule book. As the points’ leader, Kevin Harvick assumes the pole with Brad Keselowski lining up second.

Weather has altered the schedule at Darlington Raceway. NASCAR canceled all activity on Friday—moving its two practices to Saturday. In order to accommodate the practice, they needed to cancel time trials that were originally scheduled for that day. Undoubtedly this was an easy decision with only 40 cars in attendance for a 40-car field. Look for some great values starting deeper in the field and make fantasy decisions based on Saturday practice times.

Besides driving his regular No. 29 Chevrolet SS in Sunday night's Sprint Cup Series race at Darlington Raceway, Kevin Harvick will take his turn in the JR Motorsports (JRM) No. 88 Armour Vienna Sausage Chevrolet Camaro for Saturday's XFINITY Series (NXS) VFW Sport Clips Help A Hero 200.

Harvick has 13 NXS starts at Darlington Raceway, including two top fives and eight top 10s, with a best finish of fourth (2015). In his 19 NASCAR Sprint Cup Series starts at "The Track Too Tough to Tame", he has one win (2014), five top fives and eight top 10s.-JRM

Kevin Harvick finished fifth in the Pure Michigan 400, which was his sixth straight top-10 on an oval track.

Harvick remains the best overall value in most salary cap games. His price tag can be restrictive, but when he fits a niche he is a no-brainer.

Kevin Harvick started deep in the field in 24th. It took a while to get to the front, but he was there with 100 laps remaining. He bumped-and-ran his way to the front, outlasted a late-race rain storm and won his second Bristol Motor Speedway even. He added 23 place-differential points to his Bass Pro Shops NRA Night Race winning total after leading 128.

His other victory came all the way back in spring 2005. He entered last spring’s race with an eight-race streak of sub-10th-place finishes before finishing second. He qualified seventh for that race and was seventh again this spring in qualification and at the end, so there was some concern with his starting position this week. He has regularly made his way to the front this season, however. The Bass Pro Shops Night Race was rain-delayed from Saturday night to Sunday afternoon.

Kevin Harvick’s qualification struggles in 2016 continue: he posted a lap of 127.436 mph and will roll off the grid only 24th Saturday night.

This is Harvick’s worst Bristol qualification in four races. The last time he rolled off the grid in the 20s on this track came in spring 2014 in his first ride in the No. 4 Stewart-Haas Racing team. He sustained crash damage that afternoon and also had an engine problem.

With about 45 minutes remaining in the first practice session for the Bass Pro Shops NRA Night Race at Bristol Motor Speedway, Kevin Harvick scraped the wall. The damage was minimal and will not require a backup car, but he will miss some precious track time.

Harvick lost rear grip and during the replay there were sprinkles on his camera. He was 15th on the speed chart at the time with a speed of 127.792 mph.
