Kevin Harvick has contended for wins this season, but he hadn't yet broken through this season, until today. Harvick, who has the second most stage wins of any driver this season, 4, finally was upfront when it mattered most. Taking the lead with around 40 laps to go, Harvick cruised to victory line, finishing 9.8 seconds ahead of second place. The California resident becomes the 11th driver to go to Victory Lane, earring a spot in the Chase Ffor The Cup, just three months away.

The Monster Energy Cup returns to Daytona next weekend, for the Coke Zero 400. Next Week's race will be under the lights, next Saturday. WBKR will have flag to flag coverage, beginning at 5:30 P.M.
