Harvick Finishes 17th at Pocono Raceway

Harvick Finishes 17th at Pocono Raceway

NASCAR Sprint Cup Series - 400
August 4, 2013 – Pocono Raceway
Kevin Harvick and the No. 29 Budweiser Chevrolet team finished 17th in the 400 at Pocono Raceway on Sunday afternoon after battling handling issues during the 160-lap affair. The California native started the 21st race of the 2013 NASCAR Sprint Cup Series season from the 14th position and worked his way into the top 10 during the early laps when a loose-handling condition developed on the red and white Chevrolet forcing him back in the running order. The Budweiser crew made a variety of adjustments during multiple two and four-tire pits stops throughout the race, but the handling issues persisted leaving Harvick to run within the top 20 for the majority of the afternoon. Crew chief Gil Martin called his driver to pit road one final time, with 10 laps remaining, for right-side tires and fuel positioning Harvick 14th for the final restart on lap 158. The Richard Childress Racing driver was shuffled back in the field leaving him to finish 17th. Following the event at Pocono Raceway, Harvick remains fourth in the Sprint Cup Series driver championship point standings.

These fast, flat tracks have not been kind to us this season. It's not fun for anyone on our team to run and finish in the top 20. Even though we didn't get the finish we were looking for today, we're not going to let it get us down. Next week is another race and a completely different style of track. - Kevin Harvick
