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.

Yes. Sterling and Dixon have had bans for years. It’s time for Rock Falls to impose a ban.
No. It would be too great a burden for homeowners to dispose of fallen leaves in other ways.
