Kevin Harvick did what he needed to do Sunday. Harvick led a race high 355 of 400 laps to win the NASCAR Sprint Cup series AAA 400 at Dover International Speedway.  After starting 15th, Harvick quickly made his way to the front and never looked back scoring the 31st win of his career. Here’s how it all went down Sunday at Dover.

Due to heavy rain washing out all track activity on Friday, points set the starting lineup and points leader Matt Kenseth led the field to the green under cloudy skies.  Denny Hamlin was on the inside.

Paul Menard, Kyle Busch, Clint Bowyer and Kevin Harvick all started the race facing elimination. MORE>>>
