After qualifying 33rd for Sunday’s Eliminator Round opener at Martinsville Speedway, Kevin Harvick and his No. 4 Stewart-Haas Racing team need to have a strong race pace from the drop of the green flag.
In that regard, it looks like they’ve found something.
After going fifth-fastest in this morning’s second Sprint Cup practice, Harvick topped final Cup practice this lunch hour with a lap of 19.457 seconds around the Virginia half-mile.
Harvick was among three Chasers in the Top 5 and four in the Top 10 during “Happy Hour.” Last week’s winner Brad Keselowski was third-fastest (19.485 seconds) and eight-time Martinsville victor Jeff Gordonwas fifth-fastest (19.495 seconds).
