After his disastrous start to the Chase last week at Chicagoland Speedway, Kevin Harvick is dominating Sunday’s Sylvania 300 at the halfway mark.

Harvick has led 128 of the first 150 laps of the scheduled 300-lap race at the 1.058-mile flat oval of New Hampshire Motor Speedway in Loudon, N.H.

Brad Keselowski is running second, followed by Matt Kenseth, Dale Earnhardt Jr., Chicago winner Denny Hamlin, Kurt Busch, Jimmie Johnson, Joey Logano, Kyle Busch and Kasey Kahne.

Pole-sitter Carl Edwards is running 11th, having led the second-most laps (19), while Keselowski has led two laps.

Other Chase drivers outside the top 10 include Martin Truex Jr. (12), Ryan Newman (13), Jeff Gordon (14), Jamie McMurray (17), Clint Bowyer (20) and Paul Menard (23).

Aric Almirola wrecked 36 laps into the race and has not returned. Others involved in wrecks include Landon Cassill and Alex Bowman.
