Kevin Harvick: Wins AAA 400 Drive for Autism

Adjust Comment Print

Dover is hosting the OneMain Financial 200 XFINITY Series race Saturday, followed by the AAA 400 Drive for Autism Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series race Sunday.

But it was Kyle Busch who stole numerous headlines as the man who was tied for the most wins this season coming into Dover (3) had to pull out of the race with 124 laps to go as he had a problem with his driveshaft which resulted in his vehicle spewing oil and parts resulting in a caution.

Kyle Busch and Ricky Stenhouse Jr. round out the top-5 starters. "I don't know, I hope so, but I think it's more present timing as to how your performance is more so than past history at a race track".

What can the Monster Mile do for an encore?

Joey Logano said pit guns were discussed this week at a driver council meeting.

The race favorite per the odds is Kyle Busch at +350. He opened this season by wrecking out of the Daytona 500 and has just one top-five in 10 races.

"I'm bringing it home but do not break the arm off of this one", Harvick said he told his son.

However, he never really gave himself much of a chance to win at Talladega. That probably doesn't matter, as Busch has 17 wins over the last 3½ NASCAR seasons and is pretty capable of winning anywhere.

Larson has been second, second, and third over the last three years in this race. I got myself hung a little higher and longer than I needed to finish the corner.

Chase Elliott, another Chevy driver who had complained last week he didn't have help from his fellow manufacturer drivers in the closing laps, will start sixth on Sunday. He was fifth in the fall race a year ago. He won past year at Dover and hasn't won since.

That time came with 63 laps to go when Harvick passed Bowyer for the lead.

Kevin Harvick made the final 80 laps at Dover nothing more than a formality.

"Three cars in the top five says a lot about where we are as a company ..."

Paul Menard hit pit road with 10 laps remaining with a possible flat tire but ended up taking his No. 21 Ford to the garage.

The first race of the tripleheader weekend at Dover International Speedway is also Friday afternoon. Outside of Johnson, no active driver has a win in this race since 2010, and that was Kyle Busch.

You can always pick a longer shot, but it seems like one of these short prices will take the AAA Drive for Autism 400 down.
