Harvick defeats Hamlin in the late NASCAR thriller in New Hampshire – NASCAR



Kevin Harvick of Stewart-Haas Racing survived a final round in New Hampshire with Denny Hamlin to claim his first victory in the 2019 NASCAR Cup Series season.

Joe Gibbs Racing's Hamlin led for much of the final stage before Kyle Larson hit the wall in Turn 1, triggering a warning on 37 of the 301 remaining laps.

Harvick finished in the top five and decided to stay outside to take the lead on the restart.

Hamlin restarted in fourth, quickly knocking out teammates Martin Truex Jr. and Erik Jones, who were also out, to launch a showdown with Harvick.

The gap between the two had stabilized after half a second, but Harvick made a compromise On the penultimate lap Hamlin came to a halt just inches from the SHR Ford.

Hamlin marked Harvick's bumper in Turn 1

, but the SHR rider managed to stay ahead.

Harvick made a defensive line in the final corners and though he approached Harvick's outskirts on the last corner, Hamlin could not prevail.

Harvick's first victory in 2019 arrives at the place where he finished his sixth race last season Has achieved victory. It is also the first win of the year for SHR.

Hamlin climbed to ninth place from behind in a replacement car, as did the JGR Toyota, who drove the Truex Jr. to Richmond earlier this season to end the first leg.

Both Hamlin and Harvick were among a number of front runners who sacrificed milestones at the end of the second leg to claim their position on the track towards the end of the race.

Erik Jones secured second place in a row. He experienced an eventful second leg and exchanged color with Hamlin in the two fights before Jones collided in the pit lane with Alex Bowman's Chevrolet.

Jones then slipped to 28th place and tagged Roush Fenway Racing Ford by Ricky Stenhouse Jr. during his recovery, causing a puncture that knocked the # 17 car into the wall.

Jones returned through the set in Phase Three and decided to pursue the same strategy as Harvick at the last precaution, barely bypassing the commitment. After a late call to stay outside, he had to get into the pit lane.

A late lawsuit by Leavine Family Racing's Matt DiBenedetto put Ryan Blaney in the top-5 of the year behind Ryan Blaney's best Penske car

Martin Truex Jr. was sixth in the lead over Ryan Newman , The latter was seventh, although he started in a replacement vehicle at the end of the field and lost a cylinder halfway through the final stages.

His Roush Fenway crew managed to replace the faulty coil wire with three consecutive pit stops, eager to stay on The Leadership Round.

Kyle Busch made sure that all four cars from Joe Gibbs Racing reached the top 8.

Later, on the wall of the first turn, Busch drove to a tug-of-the-road position.

Points' leader Joey Logano and team-mate Penske rounded out the top 10, while second-stage winner Aric Almirola finished eleventh at the 300th NASCAR start. [19659023] race result
