Food City 500 - Bristol Motor Speedway

Harvick Survives to Win Crashfest at Bristol
So who needs a crew chief? Kevin Harvick won the Food City 500 at Bristol Motor Speedway, while his crew chief Todd Berrier was at the house, serving race number two in a four-race suspension handed down by NASCAR after infractions at Las Vegas. Already down a crew chief, the crew found a puddle under the No. 29 on Sunday morning after the impound. The car was found to have to have leaky power steering, and in order to change the part, Harvick would have to start at the rear of the field, which he did. Not any of those things would deter Harvick from his ultimate goal, victory lane. Harvick broke a 55-race winless streak with his win on Sunday, his first win since he won at Indy in August of 2003. Starting from the rear, Harvick would avoid many wrecks, including a 14-car pileup, and would take the lead for the first time at lap 91 and would pass Greg Biffle at lap 434 and would lead the rest of the way. Harvick would win going away beating Elliott Sadler by 4.652 seconds to capture his fifth career Nextel Cup win. Harvick led three times for 109 laps, while Rusty Wallace led the most laps in the event, leading four times four a total of 157 laps. Elliott Sadler finished second after starting from the pole position, while Tony Stewart came home in third. Dale Earnhardt Jr. and Dale Jarrett rounded out the top five in the finishing order. The event was slowed by 14 caution periods for a total of 115 laps, including the first one on lap three.
