KEVIN HARVICK, NO. 29 RHEEM CHEVROLET – FINISHED SECOND
POST RACE TRANSCRIPT:
KERRY THARP: Let’s get started in our post-race. We’ll roll right into the eighth annual Subway Fresh Fit 500 NASCAR Sprint Cup Series event here at Phoenix International Raceway, Race 2 of the 2012 season. Our race runner up at today’s eighth annual Subway Fresh Fit 500 is Kevin Harvick, and he drove the No. 29 Rheem Chevrolet for Richard Childress Racing. Second place finish today and Kevin is third in points, eight out of the first place points leader. Kevin, talk about I know you said there on pit road that you were proud of your team for gutting it out here today even though you ran just a little bit shy of Sunoco there at the end.
KEVIN HARVICK: Yeah, when you come out of caution they tell you you’re nine laps short, you really don’t think there’s any possibility to make it. But a couple cautions and a little bit of saving and a little bit tighter crunch on the numbers, we wound up about a lap short.
But those are the types of things you’ve got to do to take the chances, and when you’re close enough to at least coast around, they did a good job. So we came here and struggled at the last race here and ran 25th, 30th all day and came back and raced for a win today. So they’ve done a good job over the winter, and hopefully that continues over the next few weeks in the preparation that they’ve done through the winter.
