Harvick wins the USG
Durock 300 NASCAR race
July 10th 2005
Kevin Harvick had to hold off Greg
Biffle to win the
USG Durock 300
NASCAR Busch Series race at Chicagoland Speedway in Joliet, Illinois on
Saturday. Harvick held on to the lead for the last 19 laps earning him
his second victory of 2005.
"I got a good start and never had to
check up through (turns) 1 and 2. Once we got out (in) front it was that
much better. There for about 10 laps, you didn't have to let out of the
throttle," Harvick said.
A loose lug-nut cost Ryan Newman
dearly after leading from the pole position the first 118 of the 200 lap
race. Newman’s Dodge was a power house from the start, but a penalty on
pit road put in into third place.
Biffle, who came in second place held
some resentment after the race saying
"I think Kevin Harvick is a chicken. I think he's a punk
and I wish he was sitting right here beside me …If you want to know how
I really feel, I'd get points taken away…He
had to try to block to keep us a lap down and he stayed behind the 41
for as long as he could so we wouldn't be the lucky dog. Whatever he
needs to do to try to win - I guess he needs to because he hasn't won in
Harvick responded to the criticism by
saying "I think the biggest thing he needs to do is remember we were all
racing. If he wants to step outside and take care of it we can. He needs
to remember I still owe him one from 2002. He just needs to quit whining
about it and just race."
