SPARTA, Ky. (AP) - Kevin Harvick passed Kyle Busch on the final restart and held off Brad Keselowski to win the NASCAR Nationwide Series race Friday night at Kentucky Speedway.
After failing to pass Busch on an earlier restart, Harvick succeeded with another chance on Lap 196. His Chevy gained enough space from Keselowski, who rallied from 17th following a pass-through penalty with 50 laps left to finish second in a Ford.
Before the pit road speeding penalty, Keselowski seemed headed for a second straight victory at the track in leading 138 laps.
Harvick led twice for 14 laps. He has two series victories this season and 42 in 309 career starts. He also won at the track in 2001.
Busch was third, and Paul Menard fourth.
Regan Smith's late accident left him 28th and allowed Elliott Sadler to take a four-point lead over rookie Chase Elliott in the season standings.
