FORT WORTH, Texas (AP) - Kevin Harvick led 127 laps and won the NASCAR Nationwide race at Texas for the fifth time Saturday night, while Ricky Stenhouse Jr. got even with Elliott Sadler for the season points lead with two races left.
Stenhouse fought a loose car much of the night, and managed a fourth-place finish to make up his six-point deficit to Sadler, who finished 11th. Stenhouse's six victories, two more than Sadler, give him the tiebreaker.
Sadler was sixth, only two spots behind Stenhouse, on the final restart with 18 laps left at the 1 1/2-mile high-banked track. But he started sliding back, and lost the points lead after dropping out of the top 10 with three laps left.
The five Nationwide wins at Texas by Harvick matched Kyle Busch for the most.
