LAS VEGAS — Kevin Harvick looked like a potential race winner until an issue with the left front hub and brakes forced him to the garage at the 200-lap mark Sunday.

Having won last week at Phoenix, Harvick was philosophical about the issue that had cost him a chance at consecutive victories.

“It’s hard to complain,” said Harvick, who led 23 laps before the issue with the hub relegated him to a 41st-place finish, 30 laps down. “These guys on this Jimmy John’s Chevrolet have given me cars that are good every week.”

In his first season with Stewart-Haas Racing and with crew chief Rodney Childers, Harvick and his team are still learning.

“Just a little parts failure there and just we’ll figure out the cause of it and try to just keep that from happening,” Harvick said. “Every week is a new notebook for us. I really think, as we get established and get some foundation for our set-ups and just the little things this, team is going to be dangerous.”
