KANSAS CITY, Kan. – Kevin Harvick didn’t just have his hands full with the Sprint Cup field Sunday. He also was trying to tame a squirrely surface at Kansas Speedway.

He handled both better than anybody else.

Harvick pulled away from Kurt Busch and Jeff Gordon on a late restart to win a wreck-filled race over the recently repaved track, keeping his No. 29 Chevrolet out of trouble all afternoon and making a big move in the Chase for the Sprint Cup championship.

“It was an interesting weekend, to say the least,” Harvick said.
