Maybe something else would have happened. Maybe not. DeLana Harvick, wife of Kevin Harvick, expressed her frustration with Austin Dillon and his team for staying out and causing the final caution instead of pitting when his car lost power in Sunday’s Cup race.
That caution sent the field to pit road. Harvick, who was leading, exited in the lead, but was called for speeding on pit road. That penalty cost him the win. Harvick, who led 292 of 325 laps, finished ninth.
Since his dramatic win at Atlanta in 2001, Harvick has not won another Cup race at the 1.54-mile track.
