Harvick faces tough task at Martinsville

MARTINSVILLE, Va. (AP) Kevin Harvick has picked his way through traffic before at Martinsville Speedway, never when the stakes were so high.

A poor qualifying effort has Harvick starting 33rd, behind all the other title contenders, in Sunday's race on the Virginia short track. Because the rest of the Chase for the Sprint Cup championship field is starting in the top 13, Harvick won't have much time to avoid being lapped.

His Stewart-Haas Racing Chevrolet was considerably faster on Saturday - he was fastest in the final practice of the weekend - so crew chief Rodney Childers didn't seem too concerned about race day.
