Kevin Harvick by the numbers since joining Stewart-Haas Racing

1 Comment

Kevin Harvick’s victory at New Hampshire Motor Speedway was a continuation of the excellence the No. 4 Stewart-Haas Racing team has displayed since hitting the track in February 2014.

In his 100th start since joining the organization, Harvick earned his 11th win and 34th overall in the Sprint Cup Series.

The combination of SHR, Harvick, and crew chief Rodney Childers has produced one of NASCAR’s best teams. Harvick won the 2014 championship and finished runner-up to Kyle Busch last season. It was an impressive start with SHR considering Harvick finished no higher than third in points (twice) in his 13 years at Richard Childress Racing.

But just how good has Harvick been in the last 100 races? Here are the numbers:

  • 11 wins
  • 23 second-place finishes
  • Nine poles
  • 51 top-five finishes
  • 70 top-10 finishes
  • 5,650 laps led
  • Has led over 1,000 laps in his each of his three seasons at Stewart-Haas Racing
  • Was the points leader after 26 regular-season races in 2015 and 2016

After 28 races this season, Harvick leads the Sprint Cup Series in top-10 finishes with 22 and is tied with Brad Keselowski for a series-best 14 top-five finishes. However, as he advances into the round of 12 in the Chase, Harvick continues to lead the series with an average finish of 8.6.
