2014 Phoenix: Chevrolet NASCAR Sprint Cup Race Recap

Kevin Harvick in the No. 4 Jimmy John’s Chevrolet SS turned in a dominating performance today leading 224 of the 312 laps to win The Profit on CNBC 500 NASCAR Sprint Cup Series race at Phoenix International Raceway (PIR). Harvick’s victory is the 24th of his career and marks him in the record book as PIR’s all-time leader in Sprint Cup victories with five. The Stewart-Haas Racing driver led a 1-2 finish for Chevrolet, which is now two-for-two in the 2014 NASCAR Sprint Cup Series.

Chevrolet SS drivers took six of the top 10 finishing positions. Coming off a victory at the Daytona 500 a week ago, Dale Earnhardt, Jr. placed second in his No. 88 National Guard Chevrolet SS to give Team Chevy a sweep of the top two positions for the second consecutive race at PIR. Chevrolet has now won seven of the last 11 races at PIR.

"Man, this just solidifies so many things and so many decisions," Harvick said in Victory Lane. "It’s been so much work with all the time and effort that these guys have put in, but what a race car. I’m just really happy and thank everybody at the Hendrick engine shop and all these cars sharing information. Dale [Earnhardt] Junior racing there for second was a lot of fun. Man, this is awesome!"

Jeff Gordon in the No. 24 Pepsi MAX Chevrolet SS placed fifth, followed by six-time and defending NASCAR Sprint Cup Series champion Jimmie Johnson’s No. 48 Lowe’s Chevrolet SS in sixth and Ryan Newman in the No. 31 Quicken Loans Chevrolet SS in seventh. Jamie McMurray rounded out the top-10 in the No. 1 Cessna/Bad Boy Buggies Chevrolet SS coming home 10th.

Earnhardt, Jr.’s runner-up finish solidified his early lead in the Sprint Cup championship standings. Gordon moved up to third in points with his top-five finish at Phoenix and Harvick moved from 12th to fourth with the victory.

Next week the series continues the west coast swing competing at Las Vegas Motor Speedway Sunday March 9th.
