The Camping World 200 started off more like a demolition derby than a Busch Series race. However, the second half of the race was much cleaner than the first half, so the teams had to adjust on the fly and come in for fuel when the caution flew with 38 to go. While Matt Kenseth tried a two-tire stop to get to the front at that point in time, his car was just not good enough to hold off Kevin Harvick and Carl Edwards.
In a Nutshell: It was Juan Pablo, Juan Pablo, Juan Pablo… all the time South of the Border. Montoya may have felt the pressure to live up to the hype this weekend, as his face graced posters all over Mexico City to promote the race… in the end, he certainly pulled through. Things didn’t start …
Matt Kenseth gave Roush his sixth victory in the last seven Busch Series races at California when he drove off to a five-length win over Casey Mears in the Stater Bros. 300.
Kevin Harvick took the lead on lap 79 of 120 in the Orbitz 300 and never gave it up, leaving Dave Blaney, Carl Edwards, Clint Bowyer and Mark Martin scratching their heads and unable to mount a challenge against him.
Matt Kenseth led Carl Edwards to the checkered flag under caution in the Ford 300 at Homestead to win his second straight race in the series to close out the season. Paul Menard, Denny Hamlin and JJ Yeley rounded out the top five.
The Busch Series title already squared away, Kevin Harvick is now attempting the challenge of figuring out how many different ways he can win a Busch Series race this season. This time, it was his fuel mileage that held up, as Harvick posted his ninth Busch Series victory of the season in the O’Reilly Challenge at Texas Motor Speedway.
Kevin Harvick got one more shot at the Sam’s Town 250 win and took advantage of a poor start by the No. 60 Ford of Carl Edwards to pounce going into turn 1. Teammate Clint Bowyer joined the fray, making it three-wide briefly before Harvick and Bowyer ran off to settle it amongst themselves.
It was business as usual for Kevin Harvick Saturday afternoon; he scored his seventh Busch Series win of the season in the Yellow Transportation 300 at Kansas Speedway, and once again, he found his way to victory lane even without the fastest car.
Clint Bowyer has come oh-so-close so many times, racking up four second-place results heading into the Dover 200. This time, he finally sealed the deal.
It was another chapter of the same story Friday night in the Emerson Radio 250, as Kevin Harvick chalked up his sixth Busch Series win of the year at Richmond International Raceway.
