Harvick wins NASCAR race at Michigan International Speedway

Kevin Harvick is the man to be on the NASCAR Sprint Cup circuit these days. However, every driver will tell you not to count out defending four-time Cup champion Jimmie Johnson.

Harvick, who leads the points race and with Sunday’s win, clinched his spot in the upcoming Chase with only three regular races left in the regular season.

Harvick’s closest competitor Sunday was Denny Hamlin, who Harvick had passed with 11 laps to go, then held on for the win. Earlier in the race, Harvick’s crew chief had him stay out on the track instead of making a pit stop during a late caution.

Richard Childress Racing, which Harvick is an employee of, has had a recent surge on the track, but they typically don’t do well at Michigan International Speedway in Brooklyn.
