March 11, 2018 at ISM Raceway in Avondale, AZ Kevin Harvick scored his third consecutive win in as many races. This is Harvick’s 40th Monster Energy Cup Series win.
Harvick figure out the win during the last cycle of pit stops when Kyle Busch’s team was slow in changing the right rear tire, allowing Harvick to move ahead and build an lead that with only 53 laps remaining that Busch couldn’t overcome. Busch, led a race-high 128 laps and had a faster car but it wasn’t enough.
“I’ve been mad as all get out because this team does a great job, this organization does a great job,” Harvick said. “We’ve got fast racecars, and for them to take that away from those guys pissed me off last week. And to come here to a racetrack that is so good to us, is a lot of fun, and everyone was so determined, we just wanted to stomp ‘em. We didn’t stomp ‘em but we won and that’s really all that matters. To all those haters out there ... I see you.”
