This is Kevin Harvick time now. The Stewart-Haas Racing driver enters this weekend’s Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series race at the Texas Motor Speedway 14 points behind the cutoff line but heading to two very good tracks of him.
Harvick, has been so good at Texas in the past. In fact, Harvick is the two-time defending race winner in the annual playoff race. He’s scored three top two finishes in his last four Texas starts including 10 straight top 10’s in the LoneStar state as well.
Out of those 10 top 10’s are six top three’s including two wins, three runner-up’s and a third place run.
This is his weekend. He needs it. Luckily, he’s had 10 top eight finishes in his last 13 starts on the season in his No. 4 Ford including five top eight’s in the playoffs alone.
What was odd was, he was the worst SHR finishing driver in the spring race. His teammates were second (Clint Bowyer), third (Daniel Suarez) and seventh (Aric Almirola).
I think they can all be strong again on Sunday, but Harvick should be the top finisher this go around.
