Frontstretch Podcast: Happy Times for Happy Harvick

In the latest episode of the 2018 Frontstretch Podcast, we review the Kevin Harvick Invitational at ISM Raceway, with Dustin AlbinoMike Neff and Joseph Wolkin, while also previewing the weekend ahead at Auto Club Speedway.

The trio discuss the hot start that Harvick and Stewart-Haas Racing have jumped out to, putting all four cars in the top 10 for the first time ever this past weekend. Coming off back-to-back weekends in which the No. 4 car led more than half the race, it took a patient Harvick to be the closer on Sunday, leading just 38 laps.

Finally, we discuss each manufacture, as Toyota has five finishers inside the top nine on Sunday, while Chase Elliott was the lone Chevrolet inside the top 10. What’s wrong with Jimmie Johnson and Hendrick Motorsports, and is it time for a cookies and mile meeting with team owner Rick Hendrick?
