Kevin Harvick snapped a victory drought of nearly two years when the NASCAR Cup Series visited Michigan International Speedway on Sunday (Aug. 7), waiting through a rain delay and outrunning the field en route to the 2022 FireKeepers Casino 400 win.
His reward? A 13th consecutive postseason bid, the longest active streak in the sport. Harvick will now seek a second championship after winning one in the first year of the sport’s elimination-style playoff format in 2014.
Frontstretch’s Adam Cheek is joined by Jared Haas to break down whether Harvick’s triumph vaults him into title contention after a winless 2021 and so-far-lackluster 2022. The duo also discusses the Next Gen performed in the Irish Hills at Michigan and if the Cup Series will have 16 or more winners with just three races left until the playoffs.
