Column By: JESSY MILLER / RPW – LOUDON, NH – It was Kevin Harvick who was holding the lobster in Victory Lane come Sunday evening. Harvick has been fighting to get his first win of the year all season and the wait for the No. 4 team has finally come to an end.
Prior to the New Hampshire Motor Speedway win, Harvick had 12 Top-10’s and only six Top-5’s. A big difference compared to last years stats where he ended the season wirth 8 race wins, 29 Top-10’s and 23 Top-5’s.

The Stewart-Haas Racing driver’s New Hampshire win was also his fourth win at the track, tying him with Jeff Burton (Race analyst and broadcaster for NBC) for most wins at the New England track.
This win is Harvick’s forty-sixth career Cup win.
Lots of silly shenanigans happen when Havrick’s son Keelan comes to the track, including kissing the lobster and making silly faces for pictures next to the trophy.
