BROOKLYN: Kevin Harvick won the NASCAR Cup race at Michigan. He raced to the 47th NASCAR Cup victory of his career. With just three races before the playoffs, the timing of his latest strong performance may help him win a second championship.
Late in the race, the Stewart-Haas Racing driver created a cushion between his Ford and the competition and finished more than a second ahead of Denny Hamlin.
“Nothing I could really do,” said Hamlin, who drove a Toyota-powered car for Joe Gibbs Racing. “Didn’t have enough speed.”
Kyle Larson was third, more than 16 seconds behind Harvick. He was followed by Martin Truex Jr., Daniel Suarez and points-leader Kyle Busch.
