Kevin Harvick, driver of the No. 4 Budweiser Chevrolet SS, led the four-car Stewart-Haas Racing (SHR) contingent Saturday at Watkins Glen (N.Y.) International by qualifying fourth for Sunday’s Cheez-It 355k at The Glen NASCAR Sprint Cup Series race. Harvick turned a lap of 68.447 seconds at 128.859 mph around the 2.45-mile, 11-turn road course.
“I didn’t really put a whole lap together,” said Harvick, who won at Watkins Glen in 2006. “The car was really good – just didn’t get everything out of it that I needed to get the pole. Still, it’s a solid effort by our Budweiser team and a really good starting position. From there we should be able to hopefully race up front all day.”
