RICHMOND, Virginia — Sixty-five losses in a row. Two wins in a row.
Kevin Harvick might be driving through an ultimate U-turn.
Harvick won Sunday’s NASCAR Cup Series 400-lap race at Richmond Raceway for his second straight victory, underlining the strength of the Rodney Childers-led Ford team as the Cup playoffs approach. He finished .441 of a second in front of Christopher Bell.
After months of speculation that the veteran Harvick, 46, might miss the playoffs, now he appears to be poised to be a force in the search for a second Cup championship.
Call him Mr. August.
