Harvick Wins Degree V12 300
Kevin Harvick passed Dale Earnhardt Jr on the penultimate lap of the Degree V12 300 at Atlanta Motor Speedway, and then held off Kyle Busch, who passed Earnhardt Jr on the last lap, to win the race.
Earnhardt Jr stretched his fuel to make it to the finish, but could not hold off Harvick or Busch, who had fresher tires and more fuel, having pitted roughly 60 laps after Jr’s last pit stop.
Top 5: Harvick, Busch, Earnhardt Jr, Brad Keselowski, and Jeff Burton.
Joey Logano, Carl Edwards, Greg Biffle, David Ragan, and Reed Sorenson rounded out the top 10.
Notables: Kasey Kahne (11th), Brian Vickers (12th), David Gilliland(15th), Mike Wallace (19th), Jason Leffler (20th), Steve Wallace (23rd), Kenny Wallace (27th), Kelly Bires (32nd), and Dave Blaney (43rd).
