Kevin Harvick, driver of the No. 4 Budweiser Chevrolet SS, led the four-car Stewart-Haas Racing (SHR) contingent Friday at Dover (Del.) International Speedway by setting the eighth-fastest lap in qualifying for the FedEx 400 benefiting Autism Speaks NASCAR Sprint Cup Series race Sunday. Harvick turned a lap of22.154 seconds at 162.499 mph on the 1-mile, concrete oval.
“The car was just too free to get the lap we needed in qualifying,” said Harvick, who has three top-fives and 12 top-10s in 26 career Sprint Cup starts at Dover. “Overall, the Budweiser Chevy was fast in race trim this morning, so we’ll just work on that a bit more tomorrow to get it ready for Sunday.”
