It’s Still 2020: Harvick Wins, Busch Does Not

BRISTOL, Tenn. – Kevin Harvick edged Kyle Busch Saturday night in a torrid duel in the Bass Pro Shops Night Race at Bristol Motor Speedway to sail through the first round of the NASCAR Cup playoffs with two victories in three races.

Harvick opened the playoffs with a Darlington victory and then secured his third Bristol win two weeks later. His ninth victory this season leaves him ninth on the all-time win list with 58. It’s a team performance that has amazed crew chief Rodney Childers due to the conditions in which they have operated. 

 “I haven’t had one team meeting since February,” said Childers, who readily admits that Bristol is his favorite track. “I haven’t gotten my guys together. I haven’t had to tell anybody what to do. I haven’t had to tell somebody they need to work harder; they need to pay more attention to details.

“I have the best group that I’ve ever been around. We haven’t talked about how to get better.  We just all do our jobs. We expect to be the best.  Sometimes you are, sometimes you aren’t, and when we’re not, we take it on our shoulders and we go home and we try to get better. We’ve just learned so much.
