CONCORD, N.C. (AP) -- Nothing can stop Kevin Harvick these days, and the hottest driver in NASCAR picked up a $1 million payday with yet another victory.
Harvick won the All-Star race on Saturday night exactly 11 years to the day of his only other win in Charlotte Motor Speedway's exhibition event. This time it is part of a raging hot streak that sent him into the All-Star race with five points race victories, including the last two.
It's technically three in a row now, although the All-Star race is for cash only.
Because it doesn't count, NASCAR could play with the rules and it experimented with a package that included a horsepower-sapping restrictor plate and was designed to improve a race that has become beyond boring over the last 10 years. The package Saturday night did make for better racing, but the same result: Harvick celebrating again.
