Kevin Harvick, who took the lead with 11 laps to go, is all smiles as he celebrates after winning the Sprint Cup race at Michigan on Sunday.
Kevin Harvick passed Denny Hamlin with 11 laps to go, then held on to win the NASCAR Sprint Cup series race at Michigan International Speedway.
Harvick's No. 29 team gambled by staying on the track instead of
making a pit stop during a late caution. It paid off with a
momentum-building victory Sunday for the series points leader. This
is Harvick's third win of the season and his first this year on a
nonrestrictor plate track.
Hamlin finished second, followed by Roush Fenway Racing drivers
Carl Edwards, Greg Biffle and Matt Kenseth. Team owner Jack Roush
was back at the track this weekend, days after his hospital release
following serious injuries in a plane crash.
