Harvick started the 200-lap event from the sixth position and went on to lead two laps before crossing the finish line sixth, after his Chevrolet Silverado developed a loose-handling condition during the latter portion of the event. In the Rearview Mirror: Talladega Superspeedway … Tim George Jr. and the No. 2 Applebee’s/Potomac Family Dining Group team scored a top-10 finish in the Camping World Truck Series event at Talladega Superspeedway. What are your thoughts on competing in the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series at Martinsville Speedway?  “Martinsville (Speedway) is a great track for me and it’s really one of my favorite places to race. I’ve had a lot of success at Martinsville over the years, and I think it’s because the track reminds me so much of the short tracks where my racing career started. It’s a lot more enjoyable going to a track where you know you do well at. I’m really hoping that we can repeat the success the No. 2 RCR team found in March and take the Kroger/Tide Chevrolet back to Victory Lane.”
