The thing about dominance in any sport is not about just being dominant once, but instead being able to maintain it. It’s seen a lot in the NFL, just look at the Patriots over the last near two decades, they have dominated the NFL and have the titles to prove it.
NASCAR, it’s a bit different because just because a team will dominate one year may not mean they will the next. With the exception of maybe Jimmie Johnson, it’s hard to maintain that kind of swing year to year. In this era, with all the talent on the track, being able to dominate week after week is a challenge.
So how is it that one driver has been able to dominate four races, and get four victories?
Many don’t know, but Kevin Harvick certainly has figured out how to do so. Because on Sunday, he just did that. He powered his way through Atlanta, swept in to capture a jackpot in Vegas, then stated his claim to Phoenix.
Now, with a monster looking down, the No. 4 crew again did the job when it mattered, and all Harvick had to do was cruise his way to the front, and pull away from the field. A fearsome four, with a Freaky Fast Ford, is at the peak of his potential second title run, and he’s never looked better in doing so.
It never looked so good for a pair in the League either, because they both achieved yet another victory in their 2018 battle. Here’s the newest update after the AAA 400 Drive for Autism:
Sal Sigala Jr. – 458 – Kyle Larson finished 10th (3) 17

Next Race: From a monster to a state that is known for tornadoes, the Chiefs, and and Royals, it’s another 1.5-mile speedway that awaits NASCAR. It also means another time to turn on the lights, and let the night skies beam down on the fans, drivers, and the cars.
There is nothing like a Saturday Night delight for fans and teams alike, and it always makes for a great experience for all.
Participants, this weekend’s race is gonna be a little saucy, mainly because of the sponsor. After all, Kansas is known for some excellent barbecue from ribs, to pork, and anything else one can imagine. Don’t get those fingers too sticky, but lock in those picks by Thursday, May 10, at 10 p.m. ET for the KC Masterpiece 400.
