Kevin Harvick won The Real Heroes 400 at Darlington Raceway, as the NASCAR Cup Series resumed its 2020 season Sunday after the COVID-19 outbreak paused its schedule.  The driver of the No. 4 Stewart-Haas Racing Ford led a race-high 159 laps around the egg-shaped oval in South Carolina. This victory marks Harvick’s 50th at NASCAR’s premiere level, making him the 14th driver in Cup Series history to reach that milestone. Harvick broke a tie with Tony Stewart at 49 wins and is now tied with Junior Johnson and Ned Jarrett for 12th place on the all-time list.  Alex Bowman came in second, followed by Kurt Busch and Chase Elliott. Denny Hamlin rounded out the top five.

Racing resumes at Darlington Wednesday, with coverage beginning at 5:30 on KIX 101.1.
