Pole-sitter, Kevin Harvick, holds off Nationwide Series points leader “Blazingly Bad” Brad Keselowski for the victory in Friday night’s Virginia 529 College Savings 250 at  Richmond International Raceway.

The victory was Harvick’s third of the season and 37th of his career, third all time in the series. The owner/driver of Kevin Harvick Inc. led 170 of the 250 laps and was elated with the progress his # 33 Armour Chevy race team had made with the new car.

“This is the future of our company, so we put a lot of effort into this program, knowing that all the other cars were going to go away, and knowing that we had to be good with this car,” said Harvick, who gets his new chassis from Richard Childress Racing and his power from Earnhardt-Childress engines.

“RCR’s been a big part of this, as well, with the engines, the chassis and the engineering. Everybody’s been working together. It’s easy when you get started in the right direction to keep it going that way.”

Here is the unofficial results from the Virginia 529 College Savings 250.
