Harvick shakes off cheating scandal to win pole
Kevin Harvick has won the pole for Sunday’s final qualifying race for the championship. His team, meanwhile, 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.
