It was quite the weekend for Kevin Harvick at Phoenix.
On Friday, rumors surfaced of his departure from Richard Childress Racing at the end of the 2013 Sprint Cup season and move to the team owned by his friend, Tony Stewart.
Among all of the talk, there was still a race to be run. A race that Harvick very much had a shot of winning.
Running inside the top-10 for most of the day, Harvick was able to move up into the top-five on a round of pit stops, placing him in contention with the leaders for the first time in the race.
While Harvick was near in the front on the leader board, he wasn’t quite able to contend with the front runners, Kyle Busch, Denny Hamlin and Brad Keselowski.

Multiple sources have confirmed that Kevin Harvick will move to Stewart-Hass Racing in the 2014 season. ESPN first reported today that Harvick will move to SHR for the 2014 season and beyond.

Brad Keselowski has long since proven he's an elite talent behind the wheel and a glib, if somewhat irreverent analyst in front of the microphone. Now we can add prophecy to his list of accomplishments. We can also add fisticuffs to the repertoires of the Clint Bowyer and Jeff Gordon crews, who brawled in the garage after Gordon wrecked Bowyer and dashed his championship...

Kevin Harvick survived a late caution and oil on the track to win his first race of 2012 in the AdvoCare 500 from the Phoenix International Raceway. While Harvick was celebrating in victory lane, the focus was in the garage area as chaos reigned after Jeff Gordon intentionally wrecked Clint Bowyer to bring out the caution on lap 312, the scheduled last lap of the race.

That’s the only word to describe Sunday’s race in Phoenix. It was by far the wackiest race of the season. The first 310 laps were all normal but the last two laps were insane. We witnessed a fight in the garage, a big pile-up coming to the checker and a driver break his winless drought. Kevin Harvick pulled into victory lane after he stole the lead from rival Kyle Busch...
