Kevin Harvick wins at the Magic Mille and enters the Round of 12
Kevin Harvick wins the Bad Boy Off Road 300 at the New Hampshire Motor Speedway, the second race of the Chase for the NASCAR Sprint Cup. With this win, his third in 2016 season and 34th in a career, Harvick secures the spot in the Round of 12 of the Chase.
Harvick led for only eight of 300 laps, but it was enough for second win at Loudon’s ‘Magic Mille’. He used an aggressive restart with six laps remaining to take the win ahead of Matt Kenseth, who led for 105 laps. Kyle Busch, Brad Keselowski and Kurt Busch completed the Top 5.
Martin Truex Jr., the winner of the previous race at Chicagoland and the first man who secured the Round of 12, finished seventh at New Hampshire Motor Speedway, after leading 141 laps, more than any other driver.
The Sprint Cup Series heads to Dover International Speedway next weekend for final race in the Round of 16, the Citizen Soldier 400.
