Kevin Harvick Searching for 1st Richmond Win Since 2013

One of the many shockers to start the 2017 Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series season is that Kevin Harvick is still winless. We’re eight races in and Harvick hasn’t won yet. The last time its been this late in the season before Harvick won was in 2013. The race he ended that winless drought? The spring race in Richmond. Here we are, heading to the spring race in Richmond this weekend, and Harvick is hoping to end his winless streak to start the 2017 campaign. He’s been good so far…

But, he reached victory lane in the last race at Texas, and now today at Bristol, he won again. Johnson, did what he needed to do to win, just hang around until it’s go time. Kyle Larson, Joey Logano and Martin Truex Jr. dominated today’s Food City 500 in combining to lead 390 of the 500 laps, but there…

SHR Puts 2 Cars in the Top 3 in Monday’s Food City 500

It didn’t start out as a good day for the Stewart-Haas Racing camp in Monday’s rain delayed Food City 500 at the Bristol (Tenn) Motor Speedway. Kurt Busch crashed early on and would limp home with a 25th place finish while Danica Patrick wrecked not too long after and came home 36th. Also, Clint Bowyer was struggling with the handling of his car early on, as his No. 14 Ford was far too free. Two wrecked race cars and a third one without much grip. But, when the dust settled, two of the four…

Kevin Harvick Looking for 1st Cup Win Of the 2017 Season

It’s strange to that that we’re seven races into the Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series season, and Kevin Harvick has yet to win a race so far. Harvick, by far was the top driver to beat at Atlanta in the second race of the season back in early March, but a pit road speeding penalty with 15 laps-to-go ruined that. He really hasn’t been that close since that race outside of a fourth place finish in the last race at Texas. Other than that, Harvick has no other top five finishes…

Kevin Harvick Hoping for 1st Texas Victory on Sunday

Parity has been king in the Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series this season, as so far, five different drivers from five different teams have won the first six races. Now, we head to a familiar track, but one that has been given a big face lift since the last race back in November. In the offseason, the 1.5-mile Texas Motor Speedway was repaved, had a drainage system installed, the banking changed in Turns 1 and 2 as well as making those turns wider. Because of that, mixed with no testing…
