Kevin Wins #16! 2011 Goody’s Fast Relief 500 Martinsville Cup Race

From the back to the front, The Closer strikes again! After having trouble early in the race, Harvick and the #29 team get faster and faster as the race goes on putting up the fastest lap of the race within ten to go. On the last restart, after being moved back to 4th and having to fight Kenseth to not go back to 5th, Kevin works his way back to the front and takes the lead from Junior with 4 to go. After the race, Harvick said he hated to be the “bad guy” for beating Junior, and Junior said he didn’t want to be the “bad guy” if he punted Harvick to get the win. A little nod of mutual respect – note that Junior had just moved Kyle Busch to get the lead a few laps earlier.
