Unfortunately, for the Stewart-Haas Racing team, Harvick was caught speeding entering pit road under caution with 15 laps to go. "They gave me a great Autotrader Ford Fusion, and we were able to get by Kyle there at the end".
"I don't think anybody knows how hard this was to pull off then maybe the other teams in the garage area".
Keselowski, who had his own misfortune at Atlanta in 2013 that cost him a shot at making the Chase, wasn't about to turn down Harvick's gift.
"Man, I just, one way or another I've figured out how to lose races here at Atlanta after being so dominant", Harvick said.
India dismisses China land swap idea on Tawang
He last visited Arunachal Pradesh in 2009 and while China protested the trip, there was no major impact on relations with India. Dalai Lama is considered by China as a risky separatist leader, who can affect for the worse ties between India and China.
"Well, you know, wins are always special, but early in the season they're really good", said Keselowski after the race. "When you win that way, you just take it and move on". "I know I do".
"I thought I was being conservative", Harvick said. The No.4 was sent to the tail end of the field, handing the lead over to fellow CA native, Kyle Larson. After Keselowski pitted, other drivers inside their fuel windows for the second stage opted to go ahead and make scheduled stops.
He earned 48 points for the race, third-highest on the day. But Brad just drove a smart race. "We got right back to where we were, which was a big gain".
For the second consecutive week, Kyle Larson flirted with victory in the NASCAR Monster Energy Cup series.
Takata pleads guilty in air bag scandal, agrees to pay $1B
The costs of the recalls have saddled Takata, which also makes seat belts, with two straight years of losses. A group of five major automakers faces a lawsuit over alleged wrongdoing in the Takata recall crisis.
After announcements that the track will undergo its first repave of the century, drivers, fans and media alike have pleaded to keep the 1.5-mile track just the way it is - and Sunday's competitive race only grew their begs.
"I really hate it for everybody on this Jimmy Johns Ford", Harvick disappointingly exclaimed on FOX after the race. I knew I needed to be close to pit road speed because we were having trouble getting out of the box, but I didn't think I was pushing it that close. He finished eighth back in 2014. "I would not have been able to make it". "It was an uphill battle all day".
Thirteen penalties to 11 drivers were doled out Sunday for exceeding the speed limit on pit road, compared to only one in last year's Atlanta race.
Hendrick Motorsports teammate, Kasey Kahne and Chase Elliott rounded out the top-five. Elliott was critical of how speeding was being called, although he would not elaborate. He grew up in Dawsonville, Georgia that is about two hours away from Atlanta Motor Speedway by auto. I think he was just doing a little better job driving than I was and being consistent and doing a good job around the bottom and conserving his tires and still running fast. He had to come back in for a second stop, knocking him from the lead to 14th place on the restart. I think we have a great foundation on pit road to build off of. They're still on the list, just a little further down than usual. Fellow Team Penske driver Joey Logano finished 6th, while Daytona 500 victor Kurt Busch finished 7th. The 2016 Folds of Honor QuikTrip 500 only featured one speeding penalty, leaving many puzzled as to why there was such a dramatic increase. He remains the series points leader after two races.
