Harvick Extends Top-10 Streak

Kevin Harvick finished 10th in Thursday night’s NASCAR Cup Series Alsco Uniforms 500 at Charlotte Motor Speedway to extend his top-10 streak to 13 races dating back to last fall.

Harvick remains the only driver to finish in the top 10 in each of the eight races this season. He led a race-high 63 laps, but had a short-run car and was passed by eventual race winner Chase Elliott with 27 laps to go.

"It just falls off after lap 30," Harvick said. "We knew that’s what we had with our Busch Light Ford and it went straight 60-some laps. They did a really good job turning the car around. It was the total opposite of what we raced last Sunday, so it was a good test session for us. We just didn’t need a long run."

With the finish, Harvick maintained his lead in the standings. He now leads Joey Logano by 14 points.
