There’s Hope For Harvick

So the number four car of Kevin Harvick failed post-race inspection, eh? Fancy that. Everyone colors outside the lines a little, Harvick and company are no worse than anybody else. They say if you ain't cheatin', you ain't tryin'. The real trick is to avoid getting caught at the wrong time. For Harvick, the timing couldn't be worse. Or is it? Perhaps for Kevin Harvick, it's really not so bad. But he lost his automatic bid for the finals, his crew chief got suspended, and he lost points. I ...

The Big 3? How About Kevin Harvick As The Big 1?

Dominance In NASCAR Is A Good Thing

Though he's still among the greats, the mustard is off of Jimmie Johnson's hot dog. He's not through being a quality competitor, but it's no given he'll get that record-breaking eighth championship.
