Arab News - - Sport News - AP

Kevin Har­vick held off a late charge from Denny Ham­lin to win the NASCAR Cup race at Po­cono on Satur­day as the stock car se­ries got back on the track after a tur­bu­lent week. Har­vick, 44, had won at ev­ery track ex­cept Po­cono in NASCAR’s cur­rent ro­ta­tion, but he’d come up short in 38 prior ap­pear­ances at Po­cono in Long Pond, Penn­syl­va­nia.

The 2014 se­ries cham­pion won his third race for Ste­wartHaas Rac­ing this sea­son. Satur­day’s race was the first of two sched­uled this week­end as NASCAR seeks to get the fo­cus back on rac­ing after a week that opened with a fed­eral in­ves­ti­ga­tion into a noose found in the garage stall of Bubba Wal­lace.
