Kevin Harvick used a late bump and run to win last year at New Hampshire Motor Speedway. Repeating required another bump, but there was little time for a run before Harvick crossed the finish line 0.210 seconds ahead of Denny Hamlin on Sunday in Loudon, N.H.
"It turned into a wild finish," Harvick said after his first NASCAR Cup Series victory of the season.
Harvick won at New Hampshire last year after a late bump from behind knocked Kyle Busch off the lead. This time he led the final 31 laps but had to nudge Hamlin to the side on the final turn to secure victory.
"I just told him we were leaving on a tow truck or winning the race today," Harvick said.
Hamlin led 113 laps, but he couldn't catch Harvick after pitting on a caution on the 265th lap.
NASCAR paid tribute to crew chief Nick Harrison, who died overnight after Saturday's Xfinity Series race. No details about his death were provided. Harrison, 37, had been a crew chief with all three NASCAR national series since 2006.
