Kevin Harvick won the Consumers Energy 400 on Sunday at Michigan International Speedway in Brooklyn, Michigan. This is Harvick’s second Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series win of the season.

Besides winning in Michigan, he also won the Foxwood Resort Casino 301 at New Hampshire Motor Speedway in Loudon, New Hampshire. Both of his wins have come in the last four Cup races.

“We just had a really fast car all weekend,” Harvick said. “Our car handled really well today, and with the multiple lanes, we were able to run all three lanes pretty well and make our way through traffic. So just really proud of everybody on our Mobil 1 Ford, everybody from Busch and Hunt Brothers and Jimmy John’s and everybody back at the shop from Haas Automation and Stewart‑Haas Racing, just put a really fast car on the racetrack and we were able to capitalize on it, and that’s always fun.”

Late in the race, there was some speculation that Harvick may run out of gas. However, Harvick’s team made the right decision on the last pit stop, as there was enough fuel to win this race.

The No. 4 driver now has three career wins at Michigan.

In addition, this is Harvick’s 47th Cup win in his career in 669 starts in 19 years.

Harvick led 22 of the 200 laps. He first led from lap 110 to 113 then again from 1983 through 200.

Denny Hamlin was the second-place finisher. Kyle Larson finished third, while Martin Truex Jr. and Daniel Suárez rounded out the Top 5.

Besides Harvick’s 22 laps led, Truex Jr. also led 43 laps. Brad Keselowski led 66 laps and Joey Logano led 52 laps.

Hamlin also led six laps, while Kyle Busch led three laps. Kurt Busch had five laps led and Ryan Blaney also led three laps.

Two drivers were not able to finish the race. Clint Bowyer, driving the One Cure car for Stewart-Haas Racing, crashed on lap 139.

Spencer Boyd, driving the Chelle Corporation car for Rick Ware Racing, crashed on lap 123.
