The West Coast swing is over!

With the end of the three-race tour, NASCAR America’s analysts gave out their West Coast awards.

The categories were “Best Gamble,” “Best Hi-5,” and “Best Dressed.”

The winner of “Best Gamble” was Kevin Harvick for his move on Kyle Larson that resulted in him wrecking on Lap 39 of Sunday’s race at Auto Club Speedway.

The accident derailed Harvick’s attempt to win four consecutive races.

Jeff Burton talked with Harvick on Monday morning.

“He said, ‘Look, I didn’t want to give the spot up. I wanted those points,'” Burton said. “He turned left trying to side draft and just misjudged it. He hit him and away he went. His whole thought process was, ‘I need those points.'”
