Harvick wins in Vegas
LAS VEGAS — Kevin Harvick overcame a pair of horrendous pit stops to win the Nationwide Series race at Las Vegas Motor Speedway.
Harvick led 83 of the 200 laps last night, but had to rally after his crew cost him several spots on pit road.
"You look like a bunch of idiots on pit road," he told his Kevin Harvick Inc. crew after their first slow stop.
Harvick had to methodically work his way back through the field, and found himself trailing leader Denny Hamlin late in the race. Once past Hamlin, Harvick coasted to his second career win at Las Vegas and 35th in the Nationwide Series.
Hamlin was second, followed by Carl Edwards.
Danica Patrick finished 36th in her third and final NASCAR race before she takes a four-month hiatus to return to IndyCar racing.
She wrecked about halfway through the race when she ran into the lapped car of Michael McDowell.
