History at Kentucky Speedway

Harvick has six career top 10s in nine starts at Kentucky and has one top five there since 2017. While he’s never won at the track, he has momentum on his side. He has one of the best average finishing positions (10.78) in the field.

2020 performance

Harvick has the most wins (4) in the series and is tied with Denny Hamlin for most top 10 finishes with nine. He’s been the model of consistency this year and has only dropped outside of the top 15 once.
