Kevin Harvick pulled away from Kurt Busch and Jeff Gordon on a late restart to win a wreck-filled race at Kansas Speedway.
With the win, Harvick moved into third in points behind leaders Matt Kenseth and Jimmie Johnson. Kenseth, who finished 11th in Sunday’s race, has a slight 3-point lead over Johnson in the Chase for the Sprint Cup Championship.
There were 15 cautions in the race, breaking the record of 14 set in last year’s race.
Harvick sat on the pole for the first time in 254 races. He also won the last time he qualified first, at New Hampshire in 2006.
