Column: Harvick advancing bad for everyone else in NASCAR

CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) — No one would have blamed a championship contender for getting just a little bit excited when Kevin Harvick wrecked during the opening race of the Chase for the Sprint Cup.

And it would have been understandable if a driver or two had started salivating a bit when Harvick ran out of gas while leading the very next week.

The reigning Sprint Cup champion had been backed deep into a corner Unless he overcame some pretty heavy odds, he'd be knocked out of the way in the race for the championship.
