Harvick dominates in must-win race to advance in Chase

DOVER, Del. (AP) — Kevin Harvick dominated a race he had to win to advance to the second round of NASCAR's playoffs, while six-time champion Jimmie Johnson was eliminated from the field.

Harvick led 354 laps Sunday at Dover International Speedway and earned the third automatic berth in the 12-driver Chase for the Sprint Cup championship field. Harvick was mired in 15th in the standings and had to win to keep his title defense alive.

"Never quit. That's why right here, guys," Harvick said over the radio as he took the checkered flag.
