Kevin Harvick, No. 29
Kevin Harvick will pilot chassis No. 391 from the Richard Childress Racing NASCAR Sprint Cup Series stable in the GoBowling.com 400 at Pocono Raceway. This Chevrolet was most recently utilized by the No. 29 team at Pocono Raceway in June starting the race fifth and finishing ninth. Since his first appearance at Pocono Raceway, Harvick has 25 starts to his credit. Throughout the years, the RCR driver has collected five top-five and nine top-10 finishes, holds an average starting position of 19.2 coupled with an average finishing position of 13.9, has completed 96.2 percent (4,528 of 4,707) of the laps contested, with five laps led. Harvick started 21st in the 2012 rain-delayed and shortened event at Pocono Raceway, and battled a loose-handling condition before crossing the finish line 16th.
The first thing is you've got to survive the restart. The track is really fast and the thing I like about what they did at Pocono is that all the bumps are now kind of swells instead of extreme bumps. Each corner is fast. Turn 1 is a corner where you drive in and down shift. The key to Pocono is getting up off the corners and in the throttle and being able to stay in the throttle really in all three (turns). - Kevin Harvick
