Kevin Harvick Tames Darlington Saturday Night
On a track that claims it’s “Too Tough To Tame” Kevin Harvick proved that taming and dominating Darlington Motor Speedway was possible. Harvick won the pole, then ran up front most of the night, eventually taking the checkered flag home, too.
But it didn’t come easy for Harvick.
In the waning laps, Harvick found trouble keeping Jimmie Johnson at bay, especially with the help of late-race cautions. Dale Earnhardt Jr. actually led at the end, but Harvick secured the point in time.
Harvick became the first driver this year to win two races, breaking the streak of a new winner every week.
Next week, Nascar takes off for Easter, then it’s more under the lights, short track action at Richmond.
