Kevin Harvick earns 50th career victory at Darlington Raceway in first NASCAR race of 2020
Congratulations to Marathon coach owner Kevin Harvick for his victory in “The Real Heroes 400” – NASCAR’s first Cup Series race since the coronavirus pandemic caused a 10-week racing layoff. The names of health care workers across the country were substituted for the driver’s name on each of the 40 cars and the grandstands were completely empty at Darlington Raceway in Darlington, SC, for the debut race on Sunday. When the checkered flag flew, Kevin Harvick had his 50th career victory, leading the race for 159 of the 293 laps, and tying Hall of Famers Junior Johnson and Ned Jarrett for 12th place on NASCAR’s all-time wins list. To round out the day, three other Marathon coach owners finished in the top ten: Kurt Busch (3rd), Chase Elliott (4th) and Erik Jones (8th). Marathon wishes all of their NASCAR family a safe and successful NASCAR season.
