Kevin Harvick Dominates the Field at Texas
A dominating day for Kevin Harvick at Texas Motor Speedway put him in the Monster Energy NASCAR Championship Final Four. Harvick swept all three stages and led a race-high 177 laps, but needed overtime to win for the second time at Texas and 45th time in his career.
Harvick now joins Joey Logano who both now have guaranteed spots in the championship race at Miami-Homestead in two weeks. Logano led 54 laps to come in third behind Ryan Blaney.
Erik Jones ran fourth for the third time in the last five races. Kyle Larson finished fifth.
So with just one more guaranteed seed to be determined next Sunday at Phoenix, Kyle Busch and Martin Truex, Jr. hold down the third and fourth seeds based on points with Kurt Busch 25 points back of Truex in fifth.
