Pole Sitters at Texas
This is where things compound. We have the bad short term history of pole sitters during the pandemic. We have underwhelming numbers for Harvick as a pole sitter during this time as well. Furthermore, since Texas was repaved, the driver starting first has led an average of just 53 laps since 2017. That includes 40 laps or fewer for the pole sitter in four of seven races. It seems like fading Harvick makes too much sense not to do.
Yet, here’s where things get complicated for NASCAR DFS. Since Texas was repaved, Harvick is the only pole sitter to actually perform well dominator-wise. He started on the pole in the spring 2017 race and led the second-most laps (77) before finishing third. Flash forward to last fall and Harvick started on the pole, led 119 laps and won the event. In fact, the No. 4 team has won back-to-back-to-back Texas playoff races. Since the repave, Harvick has no finish worse than eighth with an average finish of third. It’s nearly unfathomable how good he’s been here of late.
