Kevin Harvick and two-time Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series champion Buck Baker are now tied on the series’ all-time wins list.
Harvick’s victory Sunday (July 21) in the Foxwoods Resort Casino 301 at New Hampshire Motor Speedway netted the Stewart-Haas Racing veteran his first win of 2019 and the 46th of his career.
The drivers are now tied for the 16th-most Cup Series wins in series history.
“This is what we’re supposed to do,” Harvick said. “This is what we get paid to do. And it’s our job, and we expect it. We expect to go out and win races.”
The next five drivers on the wins list are Herb Thomas (48), Tony Stewart (49), New Jarrett (50) Junior Johnson (50) and Lee Petty (54).
Harvick is third among active drivers with the most wins in the series. Kyle Busch (55 wins) and Jimmie Johnson (83) are ahead of the 2014 series champion.
The next race for the Cup Series is the Gander RV 400 at Pocono Raceway next Sunday, July 28.
Harvick has never won at “The Tricky Triangle,” finishing second-place four times and inside the top five in the last five races at Pocono.
