BROOKLYN, Mich. (AP) - NASCAR just got more interesting down the stretch.
Kevin Harvick won his first Cup race in nearly two years at Michigan International Speedway over the weekend - a result that could mean a driver who has a win getting knocked out of the playoffs.
"It creates a big bubble," Harvick said Sunday. "I think some of those guys that have won races that hadn't been doing very good, it creates a real scenario to where there could be at least 16 winners. There's a lot of things that can still happen."
Just three races remain in the regular season- the next being Sunday at Richmond Raceway in Virginia, and time is running out to secure a spot in the 16-driver postseason.
Fifteen different drivers have won races this year.
