Harvick: The Road To 800 Cup Series Starts

Sunday’s Geico 500 at Talladega (Ala.) Superspeedway marked a milestone for Stewart-Haas Racing’s Kevin Harvick. When the green flag waved, it was Harvick’s 800th career start in the NASCAR Cup Series, dating back to 2001. It only took three races for Harvick to reach victory lane for the first time. In 2006, Harvick experienced a resurgence after two consecutive seasons of missing NASCAR’s Chase for The Cup. Harvick’s victory in the fall was his 10th career Cup Series win. It had been a rocky two seasons prior for Harvick and the No. In the first year of NASCAR’s new bracket-style playoff format, Harvick out-dueled his three championship competitors, leading 54 laps in the process. The 2018 season saw Harvick begin the year red-hot, winning three consecutive races early on. In the first event back from NASCAR’s 71-day stoppage due to the COVID-19 pandemic, Harvick dominated the 400-mile race, notching his 50th win in the Cup Series.
