Kevin Harvick turns laps at Kansas Speedway Friday. Harvick scored his eighth pole of 2014 and 14th of his career.
KANSAS CITY, Kan.—With a qualifying time of 27.325 second, Kevin Harvick won his eighth pole of 2014 and set his sixth track record of the season at Kansas Speedway.
Harvick’s pole position is his third consecutive at the speedway and enters as the defending winner of the fall 2013 race.
Although he hasn’t won since May at Darlington, Harvick thinks he can pull off a win at any of the remaining racetracks left on the schedule.
“It could be anywhere,” he said. “I truly feel we can win at every style of racetrack at any point, it’s just a matter of everything going right. I have that kind of confidence in the race team, no matter where we go, you don’t think about how you’re going to run.”
If Harvick can win Sunday, it will be his fifth career win from the pole. But the bigger picture is the championship, and Harvick says he and his team need to keep qualifying and running consistent to have the results show.
