Kevin Harvick picks up $1 million check with All-Star win

CONCORD, N.C. (AP) — Nothing can stop Kevin Harvick these days, not an experimental rules package or a field of racers with nothing but pride on the line, and the hottest driver in NASCAR scored a $1 million payday by winning the All-Star race.

Harvick's win Saturday night came exactly 11 years to the day of his only other win in Charlotte Motor Speedway's exhibition event. This time the victory is part of a raging hot streak that brought him into the All-Star race with five points race victories, including the last two.

It's technically three in a row now, although the All-Star race is for cash only. But the stat sheet shows that Harvick has won six of the 13 races since the season-opening Daytona 500, and Ford drivers have eight of those wins.
