On a bright, warm day at Atlanta Motor Speedway, an estimated crowd of 25,000 saw Kevin Harvick win the E-Z-Go 200, besting Kyle Busch. This was Kevinís seventh victory in 102 starts in the NASCAR Camping World Truck series. In the two truck races he has run in Atlanta, it is his first victory and second top-10 finish.

“When you have the sponsor on your truck and they sponsor the race too, that makes life good,” Harvick said. “We just had a great truck. We didn’t make a whold lot of changes on the truck all weekend.”

For Kyle Busch, his second place finish makes this his sixth top-10 finish in six races at Atlanta. Third place finisher Aric Almirola posted his first top10 finish at AMS.

Kyle was asked if they had anything at all to catch Harvick at the end of the race. He responded “that was about all we had. We gave it everything there. That’s a good run for us”

But with the victory for Harvick, there was the downside from his other truck driven by Ron Hornadsay. Ron finished 34th, a DNF as a result of a blown tire that happened after a collision with Kyle Busch at lap 16,

With the truck win today, Harvick has now won a race in each of the three major NASCAR series at Atlanta Motor Speedway.
