Nationwide: Richmond - Race results

8 September 2012

Kevin Harvick won his first Nationwide Series race of 2012 by clinching victory in Friday evening's Virginia 529 College Savings 250 at Richmond International Raceway, his 38th win in 288 series starts, by a margin of almost two seconds over reigning champion Ricky Stenhouse Jr.

Stenhouse's second place combined with accidents for championship rivals Elliott Sadler and Sam Hornish Jr. means that Sadler's lead in the standings closes to just one point over the #6, with eight races remaining in the 33 race season.

Earlier, Stenhouse had claimed pole position for the race, sharing the front row with series rookie Austin Dillon. Stenhouse's time of 21.983s (122.822mph) was faster by just 0.095s to give him his fourth pole of 2012 and his eighth in a total of 98 Nationwide starts.

X-Games star Travis Pastrana fared impressively earlier in the day, topping the practice times with a time of 21.977s (122.856 mph) on the three-quarter-mile, D-shaped asphalt Richmond International Raceway. He also claimed fifth place on the starting grid for the Virginia 529 College Savings 250 night race on Friday evening, his first top ten start since joining the Nationwide Series.
