Harvick Did Not Lose Engine Before Crashing

Upon further review, it appears that Richard Childress Racing driver Kevin Harvick didn’t blow an engine, as originally reported.

Instead, he suffered from a punctured oil filter. Once replaced, the car fired, but the damage sustained from his contact with the wall prevented the team from returning to the Auto Club 500 from Auto Club Speedway.

Harvick’s inability to return to the race also ended his streak of consecutive races without a DNF. He was reportedly three short of the record.
