HOMESTEAD, Fla.(AP) - Kevin Harvick held off Ryan Newman to win the Ford EcoBoost 400 at Homestead-Miami Speedway and the 2014 Sprint Cup Series championship.
Harvick, who had to win last week at Phoenix just to advance into the Sunday's final four, had a decent car early but seemed to fade behind Denny Hamlin when the sun went down. Then a debris caution with 20 laps remaining forced the four championship contenders to make tough strategy decisions that ultimately decided their fate.
