Kevin Harvick wins Nationwide Series race at Texas, full results plus Hamlin interview

Kevin Harvick was victorious in the NASCAR Nationwide Series race at Texas Motor Speedway. Harvick’s win in the O’Reilly Auto Parts Challenge was his second in the Nationwide Series this season.

Kyle Busch started on the pole in the No. 54 Toyoyta. Busch led much of the early portions of the race but Harvick came on strong as the race developed. Ryan Blaney moved up to second as the race closed but had nothing for Harvick who led 227 laps.

The championship battle between Elliott Sadler and Rickey Stenhouse stayed close. Sadler entered the race with a six point lead, he will head to Phoenix tied with Stenhouse in the points.

As Harvick celebrated with a burnout on the front stretch drivers Denny Hamlin and Austin Dillon butted their cars together. Asked after the race about the incident Hamlin said the following about Dillon. “Well He’s gotta give room, that’s why he always gets wrecked at Bristol and some other tracks…. First of all  he got his ride because of his name… He needs to learn a lesson.”

Hamlin said a few other words which you can see in the video below. No interview was aired with Austin Dillon during ESPN’s race coverage.
