No hollow NASCAR results for Kevin Harvick
After finishing second in the Auto Club 500 at Auto Club Speedway, Kevin Harvick was asked if his early lead in the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series was hollow. He coupled his runner-up finish in Fontana with a seventh-place finish in the Daytona 500 to take a 19-point lead over Richard Childress Racing teammate Clint Bowyer in the Sprint Cup Series standings.
Harvick shrugged off his pair of top 10s and said he was more focused on getting his next win rather than being first in the Cup standings.
Jamie McMurray, the winner of the Daytona 500, is fourth in the Sprint Cup standings.
Jimmie Johnson, the reigning four-time Cup champion and winner at Fontana, is 12th in the Cup standings.
