Q: Looks like Kevin Harvick is on his way to a championship, and I couldn’t be happier about that.
Who was hurt more on Sunday – Kyle Busch or Jimmie Johnson? In particular, what has happened to the No. 48 team since August, and can it be fixed?
SPEED’s Bob Dillner reported, “there was an issue with the [Sylvania 300]-winning car of Kevin Harvick and also his teammate, Jeff Burton, in post-race tech.”
Kevin Harvick dominated the Sylvania 300 at New Hampshire Sunday, leading 118 of the final 123 laps to take the checkered flag for the second week in a row.
The Sylvania 300 is the 27th race on the 36-race NASCAR Nextel Cup schedule. The Loudon, N.H. track its first Nextel Cup winner in Rusty Wallace in 1991.
