Before the NASCAR season gets too far along let’s take a quick look at the before and after of the NASCAR season. The after comes first though,in this rendition, because in NASCAR, like most things, you have to know where you’ve been before you can get a good grip on where you’re going.
In the last couple of weeks, Kevin Harvick has been the man. He’s taken on and beaten all comers, notching wins in both the Auto Club 400 at the Auto Club Speedway and the Goody’s Fast Pain Relief 500 at the Martinsville Speedway. Only a few weeks into the NASCAR season that’s not a bad way to get started. The question now is, and this is where the before part comes in, can Kevin Harvick keep it up and possibly win three in a row? I can’t remember if I’ve seen that happen before. I’m sure though, that some NASCAR stats freak has the answer.
If so Harvick will have to make it happen at the Samsung Mobile 500. Who knows? If he can rock NASCAR with a third, he’ll get a shot at #4 when the Aaron’s 499 rolls around in 10 days. Now that would be something. Anyway, two in a row puts Harvick at #5 in the NASCAR points standing so he’s got a ways to go before he’s at the top.
