Kevin Harvick made sure the final three races of the NASCAR Cup Series regular season would be must-see TV. By taking the checkered flag last weekend at Michigan International Speedway to break a long dry spell, Harvick became the 15th different winner this season.
Good news for Harvick, bad news for every winless driver hoping to race for the championship.
Only 16 drivers will make the NASCAR playoffs, which means it's now a must-win situation for those without a victory in 2022 — and that likely includes Ryan Blaney, the only driver without a win who would be poised to make the playoffs on points. Blaney leads Martin Truex Jr. by just 19 points in the battle for the final playoff spot, so points racing may not be enough for the Team Penske driver.
With the pressure on every winless driver and even those with one victory who are trying to shore up playoff points, Sunday's race on the three-quarter mile oval in Virginia's capital is sure to be a battle.
Here is all the information you need to get ready for Sunday's Federated Auto Parts 400 at Richmond Raceway:
