2013 Richmond NASCAR: Cup results

Kevin Harvick emerged victorious under the floodlights of Richmond International Raceway on Saturday evening with victory in the Toyota Owners 400 Cup race.
Kevin Harvick claimed his first win of the 2013 NASCAR Sprint Cup at Richmond International Raceway, getting a flying restart into a wild green-white-chequered climax the the Toyota Owners 400 to steal a win for Richard Childress Racing.

It's Harvick's 20th victory in 439 championship starts, and the third time he's won in 25 Cup appearances on the three-quarter mile Richmond short track.

The race had been dominated for much of the night by Toyota runners, with Joe Gibbs Racing's Matt Kenseth leading 140 of the 406 laps before dropping to seventh at the end, and Michael Waltrip Racing's Clint Bowyer accounting for another 113 before finishing as runner-up to Harvick at the line by 0.343s.

Even though he wasn't on his best form, Jimmie Johnson finished in 12th place which means he extends his lead in the Cup standings to 43 points, almost a full race win's worth. With Brad Keselowski handicapped by a midrace flat tyre and a late engine problem causing him to finish eight laps off the pace, the second position in the standings now goes to Carl Edwards who finished in sixth place on Saturday night.
