Kevin Harvick had the lead on the final restart. He made a power move by Alex Bowman for the lead on Lap 245. With clean air, would he get his fifth win of the season? Unfortunately for him, he couldn’t.
His car just wasn’t good enough to capitalize.
Harvick, said his car wasn’t ideal in the handling department which is why he faded from first to fourth over the final 20 lap run.
“We just didn’t have a very good night,” Harvick said. “It wouldn’t turn into the corner and dead sideways in the middle of it. We got to the lead, we just went dead sideways after 4-5 laps. We were just holding on and hoping for another restart because that’s about all we had in it for a couple of laps.”
Harvick, now has six straight top 10 finishes on the season now and six top four results in his last seven night races at Kansas. He hasn’t finished outside of the top 10 on the season since Homestead back on June 14.
“We try to stay in there and dig all night and try not to make any mistakes,” Harvick continued. “If you do that and have good pit stops, you’ll have a good night.”
