Har­vick shakes off scan­dal to win pole

The Charlotte Observer - - Front Page - — WIRE SER­VICES

Kevin Har­vick has won the pole for Sun­day’s fi­nal qual­i­fy­ing race for the cham­pi­onship. The strong run came as his team is snared in a cheat­ing con­tro­versy.

Har­vick’s win­ning car from last week was found to have an il­le­gal spoiler and the pun­ish­ment cost him his au­to­matic berth into the fi­nal four. Need­ing a trou­ble-free run at ISM Race­way out­side Phoenix to get back into the fi­nale, Har­vick stepped up with a strong qual­i­fy­ing ef­fort to put him in the top start­ing spot. NASCAR: NASCAR sub­mit­ted a non-bind­ing of­fer to ac­quire all Class A and Class B com­mon stock of In­ter­na­tional Speed­way Corp. not al­ready owned by the con­trol­ling share­hold­ers of auto rac­ing se­ries. The in­tent is to com­bine ISC and NASCAR as one pri­vately run group. Xfin­ity Se­ries: Austin Cin­dric and Ross Chas­tain landed full-time rides in the Xfin­ity Se­ries, and both will be driv­ing the best cars of their ca­reers. Chas­tain was named driver of the No. 42 Chevro­let at Chip Ganassi Rac­ing. Cin­dric will drive the No. 22 Ford next sea­son for Team Penske.
