Kevin Harvick dominated Phoenix International Raceway once again and won The Profit on CNBC 500 after leading 224-laps on Sunday afternoon. It was Harvick's second straight NASCAR Sprint Cup Series win at Phoenix and his first with his new team Stewart-Hass Racing.
“To add an extra team, bring in a bunch of new guys, new driver, (crew chief) Rodney Childers has just done a phenomenal job of putting this together,” Harvick said. “These guys all want to win, that is why they came here. That is why I came here.”
Sunday was Harvick's fifth win at Phoenix, a series record, and his 24th NSCS career win.
“Yeah we had a great car,” Earnhardt said. “Harvick was fast all weekend, congratulations to him and his whole team..Right at the end of the race I think we were a little bit quicker than Kevin. Just real, real happy with the cars, just hate to come home second but that No. 4 (Harvick0 was quick all week.”
Brad Keselowski, who started on the pole, finished third. Joey Logano, who led 71-laps, finished fourth and Jeff Gordon rounded out the Top-5.
“He (Harvick) was good everywhere,” Keselowski said. “I am not sure there was anywhere he didn't have an advantage.”
