DOVER, Del. –Having picked up his second victory of the season in the Coca-Cola 600, Kevin Harvick is all but a lock to qualify for the Chase in his final season with Richard Childress Racing.

Conventional wisdom says it’s difficult, if not impossible, for a driver to win a championship as a lame duck, but Harvick isn’t letting that deter him.

“Right now, we’re just racing on a week-to-week basis, and the performance of the cars has been good,” said Harvick, who will move to Stewart-Haas Racing in 2014. “We’ve been able to get to Victory Lane four times — two points races — so I think we’re in a good position to contend for it.

“Everybody is focused on the job and task at hand to be able to put ourselves in position to try to do that. I don’t see why not.”
