Kevin Harvick wins in Homestead, claims first NASCAR Sprint Cup title

Through the Gears: The four things we learned in the season finale at Homestead-Miami Speedway
Post-race reaction from Kevin Harvick's NASCAR Sprint Cup Series title-winning victory at Homestead-Miami Speedway.

The knock on the No. 4 team this year with driver Kevin Harvick and crew chief Rodney Childers was simple. Entering Homestead, they had clearly proven themselves as one of the fastest — if not the fastest — on the NASCAR Sprint Cup grid each week: four wins, including a Phoenix sweep and leading the most laps out in the series was their proof on paper. But for all the victories they’d tallied, this bunch still had a hard time finishing races.

Weekend of triumph and tragedy in the world of motorsports

Through the Gears: Four things we learned at Watkins Glen
Reaction from the NASCAR weekend, including the tragedy in New York involving Tony Stewart and AJ Allmendinger's win in the Sprint Cup Series' race at Watkins Glen.

So often when people look at tragedy they forget its human cost. Rarely are incidents involving death clear-cut — a battle of good versus evil like we read about as children. No one, with any shred of conscience, deserves to bear the guilt of killing a man, a catastrophe they carry the rest of their lives regardless of accident or intention. It’s a punishment worse than any court can impose, a daily nightmare where one can never hit the “Stop” button. Most importantly, there’s the victim, through which the word “recovery” is impossible.

Let’s have a quick flashback to NASCAR 2011. The hottest free agent on the Sprint Cup Series market? Carl Edwards, whose decision lie between sticking with Roush Fenway Racing and replacing a struggling Joey Logano at Joe Gibbs Racing. The choice was difficult, as Edwards was on the comeback trail with RFR after a 2008 season that witnessed a gaudy nine victories and found him on the cusp of unseating Jimmie Johnson.
