Harvick Wins Another NASCAR Nationwide Race
GLADEVILLE, Tenn. (AP) -- Kevin Harvick took advantage of a late caution to win the NASCAR Nationwide Series race at Nashville Superspeedway on Saturday, the Sprint Cup driver's second victory in four series starts this season.

Harvick and crew chief Ernie Cope gambled by taking two tires under caution and seized the lead from Kyle Busch with 34 laps to go. Brian Keselowski touched off the race-changing caution by spinning at the entrance to pit road.

Harvick's Chevrolet was strong on long runs all afternoon and was not seriously threatened as the race was contested under green the rest of the way. Harvick beat Reed Sorenson by 0.2 seconds at the finish.

Busch, who beat Harvick in the Trucks race Friday night, was third. Justin Allgaier, coming off a victory May 20 at Bristol Motor Speedway, was fourth, and Brad Keselowski finished fifth.
