|Harvick Wins NASCAR Nationwide Race at Las Vegas
|LAS VEGAS (AP) -- Kevin Harvick overcame a pair of horrendous pit stops to win the Nationwide Series race at Las Vegas Motor Speedway.
Harvick led 83 of the 200 laps Saturday, but had to rally back into the lead after his crew cost him several spots on pit road.
Denny Hamlin was second, followed by Carl Edwards, Brad Keselowski and Brian Vickers.
Danica Patrick wrecked about halfway through the race when she ran into the lapped car of Michael McDowell. She had just pitted and was on fresh tires, and McDowell says he misjudged her closing rate.
She finished 36th in her last race before a four-month hiatus to return to the IndyCar Series.
