FORTH WORTH, TX, November 6, 2017 – Advancing to the Championship Round of 4, Kevin Harvick won his first race at Texas Motor Speedway in the Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series Playoffs. Stewart-Haas Racing teammates, No. 41 Kurt Busch won the MENCS pole and No. 4 Harvick secured the checkered flag in the AAA Texas 500.
“This feels so good,” stated Kevin Harvick. “We have been qualifying well here and racing well ever since I have been at Stewart-Haas Racing and just never got it to work out to go to victory lane. Today we had to earn it. To be able to pass the 78 car for the win is something that is huge for our confidence and team knowing we need to go to another 1.5 mile at Homestead to race for the championship. I am really proud of everyone on our Mobil 1 Ford. This thing was a hot rod today.”
