Kevin Harvick vocal on pit crew errors
According to Racing Insights, Harvick’s final pit stop at Sonoma was 22 seconds.
“Our GEARWRENCH Ford Mustang was good. We had our minimum of once-a-week catastrophic failure on pit road and got back as far forward as we could, as usual,” Harvick said after the race at Sonoma.
“It is what it is, I guess. We didn’t finish where we should have.”
He added, “I mean, we took away all of our chances,” Harvick added. “We should have been second at worst but we keep screwing up every week.”
