It almost seems that if it wasn’t for bad luck, Stewart-Haas Racing driver Kevin Harvick would have no luck at all.  In the last four races, Harvick has suffered issues that have sent him home early.

At Las Vegas Harvick a broken hub left him 41st; at Bristol a busted oil line left him in 39th and at Fontana a blown tire relegated him to 36th.
