Kevin Harvick Dominates At Atlanta

Kyle Busch picked off another Nationwide Series Poll as he goes for his tenth win this season in the Series.

"Really happy with what we got here today," said Austin Dillion.

Elliott Sadler said that his car is good on the long run.

The race started off with a long green flag run where Kyle Busch was leading lap after lap.  The first caution flag finally came out on lap 36 as Robert Richardson Jr. spins out.  It was close to green flag pit stops at this time so all cars came down pit road for service with Kyle Busch keeping the race lead.

As the race restarted Austin Dillion challenged for the lead big time and had it as the caution came out on lap 43 for Kasey Kahne that spun out.  After the race restarted we got into a long green flag run.  Kyle Busch easily got back into the race lead, but Kevin Harvick and his car started to get hot.  At lap 60 Kevin took over the race lead as Kyle Busch started to drift back. Around lap 86 Joey Logano wound up hitting the wall hard enough he made an early green flag pit stop.  At lap 93 Kevin Harvick made his first green flag pit stop and was back in the race after the pit stop all cycled through.

The debris caution finally came out on lap 104.  The caution brought in only a couple cars down pit road for service.  When the race restarted Kyle Busch was in sixth place and only slowly moving up to Kevin Harvick.    With 70 laps left Kyle was only up to third place.  Around 20 more green flag laps go by and the next round of green flag pit stop start.

Joey Logano pitted with 50 laps left.  Kevin Harvick pitted with 48 laps left.  Michael Annett had the lead for a couple laps and then Kevin Harvick got the lead back.   With 30 laps though Kevin said he had a loose wheel over the radio.  Joey Loagno who was in second was closing in on him for the race lead at this time.   With 21 laps left the lead was under one second.   The caution finally comes out with 14 laps left as Jeff Green crashes in the wall hard.

The caution brought in the leaders with cars taking four fresh tires with Kevin Harvick in the race lead, Joey Logano in second and Kyle Busch in third.  The race restarted with seven laps left and Kyle Busch quickly went to the outside to get second.  Kevin kept the race lead as Kyle kept to the high side to try to get the race lead.  Kyle could only get close to Kevin in the final few laps, but just did not have enough speed to get the race as Kevin won the race.

Kevin Harvick stated that Kyle Busch was going to go for it in the final laps.

Kyle Busch stated that he got aero loose on the final lap.

Joey Logano stated that he was just so tight.
