Different week, same result: Harvick wins third straight in Arizona

12 March 2018

Harvick celebrated the Phoenix win by patting the rear window. In fact, two different drivers pulled off the hat trick in 2015: Kyle Busch, who won at Kentucky, New Hampshire and the Brickyard; and Joey Logano, who won Charlotte, Kansas and Talladega during the Chase (but didn't win the title). "Put a fire in our belly".

Harvick was extra-motivated following the NASCAR penalties from Las Vegas.

Harvick took the lead with 22 laps left when Ryan Newman finally made his last stop on the sunny afternoon after morning rain.

He led Kyle Busch by.77 of a second at the end of the 312-lap race. He won the last two weeks in Atlanta and Las Vegas. Vehicle chief Robert Smith was suspended for two Monster Energy Series races, and will wrap up the suspension at Auto Club Speedway.

Home Sweet Home: Marquise Goodwin Has 'Flourished' in Year 1 in SF
His wife, Morgan, had to deliver their stillborn son at 19 weeks because of complications early in the morning of November 12. Goodwin, a former Olympic long jumper who is among the NFL's fastest players, was used primarily as a deep threat in Buffalo.

In fact, Hamlin's ability to frustrate Harvick's repeated attempts to pass enabled JGR teammate Kyle Busch to catch and pass both of them for the lead. There was a great mid-race battle for the lead between Harvick, Denny Hamlin, Busch, and Chase Elliott, which resulted in Busch leading.

His older brother Kurt Busch won Stage 2 when a late caution shook up the running order after pit stops, and the elder Busch-who had a good auto all day but never one that could stay with the leaders over a long stretch-came out on top. In 31 Cup starts in Phoenix, the California driver has 15 top-five finishes.

Bourdais snatches victory: Sebastien Bourdais wept as he crossed the finish line Sunday for his second consecutive victory at St. Petersburg.

"Those are some of the folks that I go to for any advice, because - Denny, Kevin, Darrell -those are guys that are going to tell you the way it is", DiBenedetto said. Is he going to come back? Bourdais said. "I really try not to leave any room for uncertainty as far as what I was going to do and how forward I was going to go by coming back past year, 2½ months later".

There is no evidence that Charlie was an eyewitness to the murders, or that he exists. Simpson said, "I think Charlie had followed [Goldman] in, and he brought the knife".

Larson will start second in the No. 42 Chevrolet.

Across the paddock, Robert Wickens fumed at the disastrous turn of events that had cost him a victory in his IndyCar debut. Wickens wound up finishing 18th. He is one of few drivers in the field that has multiple wins in Arizona.

He is part of an all-Canadian lineup at Schmidt Peterson Motorsports, and he and Hinchcliffe were strong the entire weekend. But SHR is no longer the top-heavy team with only two or three cars contending each week.

Rossi was not penalized for the contact and finished third. "Once the four gets clear of traffic and gets in his own air, it's hard to beat that guy".

NCAA tournament preview: No. 9 Florida State
Mizzou lost its first-round game in each of its last three appearances in 2011-13 and last won a game in the 2010 tournament. Meanwhile, one of their star players is now out for the game because he got a DWI the weekend ahead of the tournament.

"The run was ideal for me, made the pop, he defended the position, in doing so, he put me in the marbles pretty late in the corner, " Rossi said. But Rossi was adamant that he didn't err and was justified in racing for the win.
