Kevin Harvick can relate to what Kyle Busch and the rest of Joe Gibbs Racing crew is going through.

Try as hard as he can, Harvick — like Busch and the rest of JGR’s Cup corps — the 2014 NASCAR Cup champ still has yet to win a race in 2017. Harvick’s last Cup win came at Kansas during last season’s playoffs, his fourth and final win of 2016. He’s gone 19 races since without a return visit to victory lane.

“I think there at the end, we just couldn’t get in the corner like we needed to all day, I couldn’t stop like I needed to,” Harvick said. “He could charge the corner, so I needed for him to make a mistake … but never made a mistake, did a great job and wound up winning the race.”

Harvick wound up earning his third career runner-up finish at Pocono — but remains in search of his first win at the Tricky Triangle.
