(CHARLOTTE) — Kevin Harvick took home the victory in what proved to be a wild night in Charlotte.
Harvick won the Coca-Cola 600 Sunday night at Charlotte Motor Speedway for the second time in three seasons. He pulled away from second-place finisher Kasey Kahne on a restart with 11 laps to go.
Kurt Busch, Denny Hamlin and Joey Logano rounded out the top five in a race that became NASCAR’s longest event.
“It was one of those nights,” Harvick said, “where you have to grind it out and keep yourself on the lead lap.”
The race was stopped nearly 30 minutes at one point when a TV camera support rope snapped and landed on the track and in the grandstands. There were 10 people hurt, according to Charlotte Motor Speedway. Three were taken to hospitals, and have been treated and released.
The chase for the Sprint Cup continues on June 2. at Dover International Speedway.
