LOOKING BACK: Harvick continues to show flashes of having one of the strongest cars in the field in 2014, but his luck of bad luck also continued at Texas as he suffered engine failure early in the event after leading a lap and running second to teammate Tony Stewart. "The Jimmy John's Chevrolet was really fast - again," said Harvick. "It's frustrating. I don't know what else to say. It's a disappointing end to the day." Since winning the second race of the season, Harvick has had a strong enough car to win one or two more races but mechanical problems have resulted in four finishes of 36th or worse to leave him 26th in the points. Even with the win, Harvick has to rank in the top 30 to make the Chase. Harvick set a new track record of 198.282 miles per hour in the opening round of qualifying.

ETC.: Even though his team has shown impressive strength early in the season, Harvick feels the best is yet to come. "Honestly, I don't even think we've scratched the surface as a team," said Harvick. "We're still trying to get all the cars built and everything organized and flowing exactly how it needs to flow in the shop and the fab shot with all the stuff that we've changed over the winter. I think we've just got a few things to clean up and things are going to be coming together even better."
