Kevin Harvick overcame several issues including losing a lap to charge to his third victory of the season in the NASCAR Sprint Cup series Hollywood Casino 400 at Kansas Speedway Sunday. Harvick led from his first pole since2006 and would go on to lead the most laps, 138, but it was far from an easy day.
A record 15 cautions slowed the race but in the end also helped Harvick whose Richard Childress Racing Chevy was the class of the field, as long as he was out front.
Harvick led the field to the green but the first caution came out just as the field exited turn 1. Danica Patrick running three wide, got loose entering the turn. Her Chevy careened into the wall sweeping up David Reutimann and Cole Whitt. Patrick was done for the day while Reutimann and Whitt continued. Kyle Busch, who came into the day third in points, and started at the back of the field spun but didn’t hit anything. MORE>>>
