Death, taxes and a Kevin Harvick win in the Fall race at Texas. Heading into Sunday’s NASCAR Cup Series race at the Texas Motor Speedway, Harvick is searching for his fourth straight win in the annual Fall classic.
He’s got a great chance of doing so too. He’s won nine times already this season but none since having two wins in the Round of 16. He was shut out of victory lane last round. So, he wants to get his momentum back and head to Martinsville next week, a track he’s only had two top five’s at in his last 16 starts on, without any stress.
He’s likely to do so.
“I feel better about Texas than I do here (Kansas),” Harvick said last Sunday. “Our guys did a pretty good job of bringing a whole lot better car than what we had at the first race. If our car’s that much better at Texas than it was the first race, it should be a good weekend.”
The Stewart-Haas Racing driver finished second last Sunday in Kansas and now sits +41in the standings. He’s scored 17 top 10 finishes in his last 21 races run now. Furthermore, out of those 16 top 10’s are 14 top fives at that.
In Texas, Harvick has 12 straight top 10 finishes at too including a fifth place run in the race this past July.
