BRISTOL, Tennessee– Kevin Harvick came to Bristol for one thing and one thing only: the checkered flag. After a rain delay, which caused Saturday’s race to be postponed, Harvick took the checkered flag 1.933 seconds ahead of runner-up Ricky Stenhouse Jr. This is Harvick’s second victory of the season and the 33rd of his career. After the race on the .533-mile concrete short track, Harvick said, “We’ve had some good cars here over the last few years. We knew we had the performance that we needed to have in the cars pretty much every week. And it’s been one of those deals where things have just not gone exactly right. But to have the win now and just try to get that momentum before we get into the Chase and get things rolling is really what we needed.”
