BLACKSBURG, Va. (AP) - Three days after securing a share of the lead heading into NASCAR's playoffs, Kevin Harvick visited Virginia Tech and avid stock car racing fan Frank Beamer.

He also presented Beamer with a replica helmet and received a Hokies jersey - No. 29, like his Sprint Cup car - and his name on the back,
Harvick says a winning football team is a lot like a winning racing team - stocked with good people dedicated to success.
Beamer also was placed on the spot when asked who he thought would win the Chase for the Championship.
"Kevin Harvick," he said, quickly adding he also roots for drivers from Virginia.
