Wasn’t Winning Supposed To Matter More?

Really, winning doesn't matter all that much. If it did, Joey Logano would be leading the way; Jimmie Johnson and Matt Kenseth would be in the mix, and so would Kyle Busch.

Hopefully they can beat themselves." - Kevin Harvick.  Did you catch that little quote in the NBC Sports piece by Dustin Long? Does anybody doubt "Happy" means it? Let's just say that if he can't wheel the 4 car past his competition, he won't hesitate to make use of the "chrome horn" to get the job done.
