Harvick wins opener


DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. — Kevin Harvick thought he could win the debut race of NASCAR’s new Gen-6 car, and he had a solid reason for his confidence.

Harvick dominated Saturday night’s exhibition Sprint Unlimited, winning the kickoff to Speedweeks at Daytona International Speedway for the third time in five years. Harvick ties Tony Stewart and Dale Jarrett as three-time winners, while the late Dale Earnhardt holds the record with six wins.
