BAKERSFIELD, Calif. — An almost flawless run Sunday by Kevin Harvick who beat Joey Logano by 6.118 seconds to claim his second Brickyard win at Indianapolis Motor Speedway.

The Bakersfield-native also had the best car on the 2.5-mile oval for the entire weekend. He is currently number four in the points standings and is in a playoff position.

Harvick won the pole Sunday morning, led 118 laps in the afternoon and easily pulled away from Joey Logano over the closing laps for his third win this season.

“This is awesome. I kept telling myself get the baby girl a trophy,” Harvick said. “Good weekend to come, so she doesn’t know what’s going on, just a lot of noise but pretty special.”

On Monday, Harvick tweeted a picture of his trophy and teased a meal at Outback Steakhouse.
