Kevin Harvick Captures Richmond Pole

Kevin Harvick is set to start from the pole on Saturday in the NASCAR race at Richmond Raceway, but the field has been jumbled considerably.

The Busch Pole Award was Harvick's third at Richmond, his second of the season and the 27th of his career, setting up a showdown with the Joe Gibbs Racing and Team Penske cars that have monopolized Victory Lane in the first eight Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series events of the season.

"It's just the way it goes sometimes and you just have to work through it all and keep pushing to try to find more speed all the time". With about 40 to go, Bowyer almost caught him, but Truex never let him pass. Bowyer relinquished the second spot to Logano, but Truex expertly navigated lapped traffic and took his 20th career victory, the 17th in the past four seasons. In hopes of still trying to win the race, I needed to stay on the bottom and hope that he slipped up in traffic or something. "It sure was fun behind the wheel".

Logano held on for second followed by Bowyer, Kevin Harvick and local favorite Denny Hamlin.

All of the lead-lap cars elected to pit, with Kyle Busch the first off pit road but he was penalized for speeding on pit road, which sent him to the rear of the field. Hamlin finished fifth in Saturday night's race. Joey Logano finished.178 seconds behind the race victor, as Gibbs and Team Penske maintained their stranglehold on the premier division. I think that's where our strength is and we've had some moments in some of these races that we've kind of been knocked off that we've been able to rebound and come back up through. They include the cars of local favorite Denny Hamlin, a three-time victor on the 0.75-mile oval, Chase Elliott and Matt Tifft. They were those of seven-time series champion Jimmie Johnson, Aric Almirola, Erik Jones, Daniel Suarez and Joey Gase.

With the series off next weekend for Easter, Larson is looking forward to the break. He is well prepared this year as he said that they have been working well with Adam Stevens since 2015 and he is confident that he will achieve.

Lillard went nine-of-21 from the field on his way to 30 points in 38 minutes, adding four rebounds, four assists and three steals. The Blazers led 39-25 after the first quarter and were able to close out the rest of the game in entertaining fashion.

Chase Elliott started the night 10th in points, but ran 15th and has just two top-10s this year. Cup and Xfinity racers are back at it again in two weeks at Talladega Speedway.

Average Speed of Race Winner: 99.852 miles per hour.

Competition officials introduced the quicker post-race inspection timetable in an effort to make the results official on race day, aiming for a 90-minute target time frame to complete their scrutineering.

Lead Changes: 8 among 5 drivers.

Jones' failed inspection moves Kurt Busch up to the front row to start alongside Harvick in the second position.
