Harvick Wins Chicago Busch

Kevin Harvick won his fifteenth career Busch race after pit problems hampered Ryan Newman at Chicagoland Speedway

Harvick Wins Chicago Busch

Despite a caution in the closing laps, Harvick was able to hold off Greg Biffle and a fast charging Ryan Newman to take the win, moving Harvick into equal fourteenth in career Busch series wins.

Newman, who sat on the pole, had dominated the first three quarters of the race before a problem in pit lane under caution forced him back to the pits, Newman restarting in eighteenth with just over forty laps remaining.

His superior speed saw him climb back up to fourth before the late race caution, taking third soon after the restart but unable to pass Harvick or Biffle before the chequered flag.

The chase for the title saw little change, points leader finishing seventh one place behind Clint Bowyer who is second in the points standings, with third in points Reed Sorenson finishing in tenth place.
