Kevin Harvick Dominates to Win on the Monster Mile of Dover [VIDEO, PHOTOS]

He got back to that domination as he won both the first and second stages of the Dover race, led a race high 201 of the 400 laps in the race and scored his fourth win of the 2018 Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series season and his second victory on the Monster Mile.

Kevin’s Stewart-Haas Racing teammate followed with a second place finish Sunday. Daniel Suarez claimed third place with Martin Truex Jr. in fourth place. Kurt Busch, another Stewart-Haas Racing team, rounded out the top five. See the complete race results for the AAA 400 Drive For Autism here.

Joey Logano (2nd), Kevin Harvick (3rd) and Clint Bowyer (4th) all hold steady in the point standings for another week as well. Brad Keselowski moves up to take over 5th place in the standings.
