DARLINGTON, S.C. (AP) — Kevin Harvick is looking for another breakthrough win at Darlington Raceway, just like a year ago.

Then Harvick won on the country track when the NASCAR Cup Series returned from a two-month suspension because of the pandemic.

Harvick won eight more times after that, including a victory at the Southern 500 on Labor Day weekend.

Harvick enters Sunday’s Goodyear 400 without a victory. But he believes his success at Darlington can lead him back to Victory Lane.

Harvick’s not the only winless standout in the field.

Others seeking a win include points leader Denny Hamlin and reigning series champ Chase Elliott.
