Kevin Harvick’s Historical Top-Two Streak

Phoenix_NSCS_Harvick_VL_031515Kevin Harvick might not be happy about having just two wins, but he does have eight runner-ups that give him 10 top-two finishes on the year.

The 10 top-two finishes tie him with NASCAR Hall of Famer Bobby Allison (1972) for the most through 14 races in a season. The only other drivers with as many as nine top twos through 14 races are NASCAR Hall of Famers Richard Petty (1971) and Cale Yarborough (1974 and 1977).

Harvick’s strong finishes have allowed him to build a 39-point lead over Martin Truex Jr. in the season points standings.
