NASCAR America: Logano appreciative of clean, hard racing with Harvick


Kevin Harvick needed to win at Phoenix to advance to this Sunday’s Chase for the Sprint Cup Championship at Homestead-Miami.

With eight previous wins at the one-mile short track, Harvick looked like a lock to reach the championship-deciding race for the third straight year, including his title win in 2014.

But in the end, it wasn’t to be.

Still, race winner Joey Logano was appreciative that Harvick raced him hard and clean at Phoenix nevertheless.
