Kevin Harvick

The only Ford driver to make it to the NASCAR Cup Series' championship four in Miami, Harvick led the line for Stewart-Haas Racing, but NASCAR’s revised aero package changes for 2019 hurt his team perhaps more than any other in the field.

It took until Loudon in July for Harvick to win a regular-season race, and by that time the Penske-run Ford team's drivers had already won five between them. Harvick would win three more, leading a dominant SHR 1-2-3 at Texas that put him in the final four at Homestead. But fourth place was all he could manage there, having gambled on a car set-up that was only quick on short runs.
