Kevin Harvick Won NASCAR at New Hampshire Motor Speedway
Sunday's NASCAR race was a battle between Kevin Harvick and Kyle Busch late in the event. Busch was out front but Harvick came out on top at the end of the Foxwoods Resort Casino 301 Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series race at New Hampshire Motor Speedway.
There was some serious bumping going on by Harvick. That's how he ultimately won the race as he was pushing into the back of race leader Busch with his front bumper.
With six laps to go, Harvick made a very harsh nudge in the middle of turns one and two that sent Busch sliding up the race track. Harvick took advantage and drove past for the lead.
Harvick went on for the win, coming in just under two seconds ahead of Busch. Harvick has the most wins in the series this year with now six victories.
And the battle between these two drivers goes much further than just this single race. They are contending in the points, where Busch leads Harvick by 53.
I think we'll see a little payback on the bumping in the races to come as Busch remained cool and said, "I’m not sure he had to do it, but he did. It’s fine. How you race is how you get raced, so it’s fine."
Aric Almirola, who led 42 laps, came in third. Fourth was Martin Truex Jr. followed by Chase Elliott. See where your driver finished.
