This past weekend, the 2020 NASCAR Cup Series Championship Playoffs Round of 16 came to a close. When the dust settled, it was Kevin Harvick, driver of the number 4 Ford Mustang for Stewart-Haas Racing, who claimed victory.


The incredible win marks Harvick’s second of the 2020 postseason, and the ninth total victory of the season for the veteran driver and former champ.


 In addition, Harvick’s win at this year’s running of the Bass Pro Shops NRA Night Race at Bristol Motor Speedway makes the high-performance Ford Mustang three-for-three in the 2020 NASCAR postseason.


The win came after a hard-fought, 40-lap battle against Kyle Busch, a former NASCAR Cup Series Champion and the current driver of the number 18 Toyota Camry for Joe Gibbs Racing.


“To beat Kyle Busch at Bristol, I kind of got myself in a little bit of a ringer there,” chuckled a relieved Harvick, who is the clear favorite to take home the Cup this year.


“We were here to try to win a race,” Harvick added. “I know how much (crew chief) Rodney (Childers) really enjoys coming here and, hell, how can you not enjoy coming here with all this enthusiasm? Everybody is tired of being at home.”


Saturday’s night race at Bristol was the cutoff event for the Round of 16. With the Round of 12 set to begin this coming weekend at Las Vegas Motor Speedway, four drivers, including Ford standouts Matt DiBenedetto and Ryan Blaney, unfortunately did not make the cut.


That said, Ford still has exceptionally high chances of taking home the title this year. In addition to the dominant Harvick, Ford Performance’s Joey Logano, Clint Bowyer, Aric Almirola, and Brad Keselowski are still in contention.


What do all these driver’s have in common? Simple. The incredible power of the all-new Ford Mustang of course!
