BRISTOL , Tenn.—Kevin Harvick doesn’t make a ton of NASCAR Camping World Truck Series appearances. His competitors are probably glad.
Entered in a third straight truck race for the first time in 2011, Harvick made it three straight victories with a convincing performance in Wednesday night’s O’Reilly Auto Parts 200 at Bristol Motor Speedway.
Harvick, riding the momentum of wins at Pocono (Aug. 7) and last weekend at Michigan , pulled away on a final restart with 10 laps left to score a relatively comfortable victory.
Points leader Johnny Sauter surged past Todd Bodine on the late restart to take second. Bodine finished third, while James Buescher and Timothy Peters completed the top five.
