NASCAR Sprint Cup Series - Camping World RV Sales 301
July 14, 2013 – New Hampshire Motor Speedway
Kevin Harvick and the No. 29 Budweiser team collected their ninth-consecutive top-10 finish after earning a seventh-place result at New Hampshire Motor Speedway on Sunday afternoon. The California native started the scheduled 301-lap event from the 18th position and ran in or near the top 20 during the early laps. Harvick was scored in the 17th position when the yellow flag waved on lap 203. Crew chief Gil Martin called him to pit road to receive two fresh right-side tires and fuel, positioning the Richard Childress Racing driver eighth for the ensuing restart. Harvick maintained a position near the top 10 during the final laps, ultimately crossing the finish line in the seventh spot. Following his 11th top-10 finish of the season, Harvick remains fourth in the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series driver championship point standings.
We struggled terribly today, but we were able to make something out of it. The Budweiser team kept at it all day, and I'm proud of the guys for all their hard work this weekend. We've got a lot of work to do when we come back to New Hampshire Motor Speedway in the fall, but we know what we need to fix and we'll work with our teammates to get things figured out. - Kevin Harvick
