RICHMOND, Va. (AP) - Kevin Harvick pulled away on a restart with 47 laps to go and ended Chase Elliott's two-game winning streak in NASCAR's Nationwide Series with a dominating victory early Saturday at Richmond International Raceway.
Harvick led 202 of the 250 laps in a race delayed nearly 3 1/2 hours by rain Friday night. The victory was the 41st of his career in the series, and his record-extending seventh at 0.75-mile Richmond.
Elliott, the Georgia high-schooler and son of racing great Bill Elliott, was looking to win his third consecutive race and pad his points lead, but managed to do just the latter when Harvick was too fast.
The pair finished nearly seven seconds ahead of third-place finisher Kyle Busch.
Kyle Larson was fourth, and pole-sitter Brian Scott fifth.
