FONTANA, Calif. (AP) - Kevin Harvick earned his second Xfinity Series win of his phenomenal NASCAR season on Saturday, easily holding off Brendan Gaughan at Auto Club Speedway.
Harvick led 100 of the 150 laps while cruising to a comfortable victory on the 2-mile oval. He was 3.317 seconds ahead of Gaughan.
Harvick is excelling in two series early in the season. He has won two Sprint Cup races and finished second in the other two heading into Sunday's race.
Harvick also won the Xfinity race at Atlanta, and he finished third in his only other start.
Although Harvick was the only Sprint Cup driver who finished in the top seven, 12 Sprint Cup drivers ran the Xfinity Fontana race this weekend to gain familiarity with NASCAR's new rules package on a 2-mile track.
