2013 Daytona 500 (Sprint Unlimited): Chevrolet NASCAR Sprint Cup Race Recap

Kevin Harvick, driver of the No. 29 Budweiser Chevrolet SS, won his third career NASCAR Sprint Cup Series Sprint Unlimited race in dominating fashion on Saturday night at Daytona International Speedway.

Harvick led 40 of the 75 laps en route to capturing the first win for the all-new Chevrolet SS race car. It is the eighth trip to the Sprint Unlimited Victory Lane for team owner Richard Childress.

Harvick’s victory gives Chevrolet its 20th win in 35 Sprint Unlimited races, more than any other manufacturer. Eight Team Chevy drivers started tonight’s event and six of those drivers had previously visited Victory Lane at least once in the Sprint Unlimited.

Tony Stewart, No. 14 Mobil 1/Bass Pro Shops Chevrolet SS, started 14th and won segment number one, of the three-segment event. His Chevy SS was strong all night as he was able to come from the back to the front several times and finished fourth in the race.
