Kevin Harvick taught a little school Sunday. In his second points race for Stewart-Haas Racing, Harvick took the lead on lap 74 and went on to lead a race high 224 laps in route to a dominating win in the NASCAR Sprint Cup series race at Phoenix International Raceway.

Harvick had been fast in the practices leading up to the race and that continued Sunday as no one in the 43-car field seemed to have anything that could compete with the No. 4 Chevy.

“We were a little faster at the end, but they were stellar,” second place finisher Dale Earnhardt Jr. said. “Impressive as heck all weekend.”MORE>>>
