Finishing the NASCAR sprint Cup series in fourth place is Richard Childress Racing’s #29 Kevin Harvick. Kevin finished ahead of team mates, #07 Clint Bowyer and #31 Jeff Burton. Kevin missed the Chase in 2004 and 2005. But this was his third straight year in the Chase.
Kevin won the 2007 Daytona 500 in 2007, but hasn’t won a race since then. He was second twice in 2008 at Bristol and Miami-Homestead. Homestead being in the Chase. He had six straight top 10 finishes to climb from 13th in the points to seventh, securing himself a spot in the Chase. This is Kevin’s third straight Chase appearance.
Kevin started the Chase in eleventh place. He had three top tens in a row to start the Chase. And he never did worse than 20th at Talladega. He finished 13th twice at Lowes and Atlanta. And had seven top 10 finishes in the chase. Not bad, but not enough to win the Championship.
Kevin needs more wins all year long to be a contender in 2009. RCR is not quite there. The teams perform well, but winning takes them to the top and all three teams don’t have enough wins. Look for Kevin again in 2009. If he can win, he’ll be a challenge.
