One day shy of seven months, Kevin Harvick was finally able celebrate again in victory lane Saturday night. Harvick again had a dominate car leading a race high 162 of 334 laps, but unlike several other races this season, Harvick was able to seal the deal and score the win in Saturday night’s NASCAR Sprint Cup series Bank of America at Charlotte Motor Speedway.  It was his third win of the season and his first since April at Darlington.

“Everybody on our team has just continued to build better race cars,” Harvick said. “We know that we’ve had the cars to run up front and lead laps and do the things that we need to do. Things just haven’t gone right and we’ve made some mistakes; things haven’t gone right more than not”

“This was the night that we needed to win,” he added. “I don’t want to go to Talladega next week.”

Harvick took the lead for the final time with 21 laps to go and held it through the final round of green flag stops and a restart with two laps to go to score his third win at Charlotte Motor Speedway.   Jeff Gordon who led the second most laps on the night was second, Jamie McMurray third, Joey Logano fourth and Kyle Busch fifth.  MORE>>>
