Kevin Harvick Gets His Own Section
When Kevin Harvick starts in the catbird seat, it’s worth hashing out his prospects in a full section and not just a paragraph. By virtue of his win at Darlington, Harvick starts P1 and should have the best prospect of being an early lap leader. Oddly enough, despite eight wins, this is only the fourth time that Harvick will start on the pole. In those three previous races, Harvick has led a total of 15 laps. Granted, two of those races were at Daytona, the road course and the oval.
In that same line of thought, Harvick has sat on the pole recently at Richmond with lacking results. Since 2016, Harvick has been the pole sitter three times and that has resulted in laps led totals of 63, 40 and 30. He did manage to finish in the top five in all three of those races, yet he failed to really meet the criteria we needed as a dominator. Somehow, over the last four years at Richmond, Harvick has managed to be the worst pole sitter in terms of dominator points scored.
“That’s all fine and dandy,” you say. What about his prospects for Saturday night? To be honest, I think fading Harvick might be the best option. The reason I failed to write up Harvick last week was just how non-existent Harvick has been in night races. Yes, he ultimately won, but he was by no means the best car at Darlington. His victory was 100% right place at the right time. While the package changes, I don’t think his prospects do as a dominator. Harvick could very well steal another win. Yet that might not result in him being anywhere close to a value at his salary.
