Harvick Wins 2014 NSCS Championship with Win at Homestead


Budweiser Racing Team Notes of Interest:

Harvick on winning the 2014 NASCAR Sprint Cup Series championship:

“You know, I think as you go back in time and you just really think about everything that's led up to this point, this is what we race for. You show up to race for the Sprint Cup championship trophy, and to be able to come here in our first year with Gene (Haas) and Tony (Stewart) and Rodney (Childers) and all these guys on the team, you really have been able to experience something that you don't get to experience very often.
“And in the end, it's really about the people. I can drive the car, but these guys have made some bold decisions, whether it be on the pit box tonight, changing the pit crew, whatever it may be. You get to be a part of something from the beginning, and for me that was what I was looking for, to be a part of something that you could build from day one, and you felt like you knew everything that was going on for the most part.
“I got to race with just a good group of guys. I'm just really proud of everybody at Stewart-Haas Racing. They've been just phenomenal through this process. They've all been through it, and for the most part our team has not. But a lot of these guys on our team hadn't won a race, either.
“To come in here and be able to have that experience and guidance as a driver, I've never really looked at -- you've been frustrated in some of the situations, but as we've raced the cars and experienced the situations, I just feel like this format was made for us this year because of the fact that we had to build a new team. We made some mistakes along the way. I don't think any of us ever dreamed of making all those mistakes in front of the world, leading races and the things that we were doing. But in the end I feel like it all built up to this moment to be able to experience and handle the things that we did today.”

The following is the finishing position of the other SHR teams in Sunday's race:

Coming Up:
