Kevin Harvick won the Toyota Owners 400 at Richmond International Raceway on Saturday night finishing ahead of Clint Bowyer and Joey Logano.

Matt Kenseth sat on the pole for the race. Kenseth and Clint Bowyer would lead much of the first three-quarters of the race. On lap 159 Brad Keselowski cut a right front tire four laps later the sprinklers at the track began watering the grass.

Kyle Busch would be involved in a crash late in the race which began with Tony Stewart getting into Jimmie Johnson. On lap 340 Kasey Kahne would run into Mark Martin and proceed to bump him afterwards, sending Martin to the garage. Moments later Kurt Busch bumped Martin Truex into the wall.

STANDINGS: Johnson continues to lead Sprint Cup points

Juan Pablo Montoya was leading the race with under ten to go when Brian Vickers hit the wall. Most of the field hit pit road but Jeff Burton, Jamie McMurray and A.J Allmendinger remained out setting up a green-white checkered attempt.

Harvick was able to blow past Burton before the car got back to the white flag and went on to claim his first win of 2013. Coming to the line Kenseth bumped Kurt Busch out of the way for seventh. As Harvick completed a burn out Kurt Bush and Tony Stewart bumped each other on the cool down lap, a result of some contact on the final restart.
