Harvick wins Vegas Nationwide race The best car in the Sam's Town 300 finally got to the front -- just in time to win the race.
Frustrated by slow stops on pit road and a variety of different tire strategies on the part of his competitors, Harvick passed Denny Hamlin for the lead with 25 laps left in Saturday's race at Las Vegas Motor Speedway and pulled away to beat Hamlin by 1.361 seconds.
The victory was Harvick's first of the season and the 35th of his career, second best all-time in NASCAR's Nationwide Series.
Carl Edwards ran third, polesitter Brad Keselowski fourth and Brian Vickers fifth. Trevor Bayne, Justin Allgaier, Paul Menard, Greg Biffle and Steve Wallace completed the top 10. Danica Patrick fell out of the race after a crash on Lap 83 and finished 36th in her final Nationwide race before returning full-time to the IndyCar Series.
