Harvick Breezes to NASCAR Win

Harvick Breezes to NASCAR Win

The 40-year-old Busch spoke to reporters after qualifying at Michigan International Speedway but shed little light on his status for next season.

Kevin Harvick collected his series-leading seventh victory of the season when he drove away from the field late in the race to win the Consumers Energy 400 at Michigan International Speedway on Sunday.

Denny Hamlin started the race on the pole and led the first 13 laps.

Unsurprisingly given the weather in recent weeks, the XFINITY Series once again faced a rainy day on what was supposed to allow for significant practice time at Mid-Ohio Sports Car Course.

During pace laps, Joey Logano entered pit road to change a left front shock. "There's nothing that's been signed and whatever has been reported is all hearsay". The incident dropped Truex to 38th in track position, but the reigning NASCAR champion was able to bounce back to finish fifth in the first stage. After a round of green flag pit stops, Kevin Harvick held the point and took the green and white checkered flag winning the stage. By this point, Suárez had cracked the top twenty from his fortieth-place start.

Harvick passed Jamie McMurray with 11 laps remaining for the winning move, but McMurray had not yet pitted, so Harvick's pass just completed the normal pit cycle. It is believed that McMurray is in the final year of his contract with CGR who also fields a auto for Kyle Larson.

Allgaier won the 20-lap first stage after Cindric led the first 17 laps before pitting, yielding the lead to him. He remained in the position as Stage #2 began on lap 67. Points leader Kyle Busch was second in the 60-lap stage.

Less than 10 laps, in, though, Erik Jones brought out the first caution for a spin and a trip into the grass.

Leaders Summary (Driver, Times Lead, Laps Led): K. Harvick 5 times for 108 laps; M. Truex Jr. Martin Truex Jr., along with Busch, the other member of the "Big Three" this year, finished 14th.

Harvick won this race back in 2010.

(5) Austin Dillon, Chevrolet, 200. Harvick and the No. 4 team can accomplish all of those goals with a win this weekend in the team's final visit to MI in 2018.

A fuel strategy to get Truex back to running up front didn't work out.

"With that in mind, we're going to have to deliver and make results and win races, and I think that's what the sport is about at the end of the day", Keselowski said. 85-109; K. Harvick 110-170; A. Dillon 171-175; J. Logano 176; R. Newman 177-188; J. McMurray 189; K. Harvick 190-200. After finishing second in June at MIS, he was determined to get the checkered flag this time around.

Rounding out the top five were Austin Dillon of Richard Childress Racing and Ryan Blaney of the Penske team.

With rain in the area overnight, NASCAR called for a competition caution less than halfway through the opening stage. During victory celebrations, son Keelan arrived on the track to accept the checkered flag and rode in the #4 vehicle.

"But I feel like they've kind of surpassed us maybe a little bit the last few weeks". "I got to battle with Harvick there, and that was awesome".

"I was sitting there watching (Allgaier and Cindric) go at it".

"I'm kind of focused more on my team than those teams", Keselowski said.

The next Cup race is Saturday, Aug. 18 - Bass Pros Shops NRA Night Race at Bristol (Tenn.) Motor Speedway.
