This was Harvick’s first race win of the year and second for Stewart-Haas Racing (SHR). Harvick became the fifth Ford driver to secure a coveted spot in the play-offs, joining Kurt Busch, Keselowski, Ricky Stenhouse Jr., and Ryan Blaney.
“I am so excited,” Harvick said from Victory Lane. “I think as you look at it, getting our first win with Ford, this has been a great journey for us as an organization and team. It means a ton. To finally check this one off the list. I feel like we have been close a couple times but, never put it all together. Being so close to home and having raced here so much, this was one that was on the top of the list and today we were able to check that box.”
Running a tight fuel and tire strategy, Harvick took the lead in the third and final segment of the Sonoma Save Mart 350 to lead a total of 24 laps and capture the green-white checkered flag. Harvick recorded his 36th Cup win and back-to-back wins for SHR in Sonoma.
