(Kansas City, KS) -- Pole-sitter Kevin Harvick battled through a season-high 15 cautions and fought off Kurt Busch and Jeff Gordon late for a win in Sunday's Hollywood Casino 400 at Kansas Speedway. Harvick says this was an excellent weekend for the team.

It was Harvick's third victory of the season and the 22nd of his Sprint Cup career. Busch finished second followed by Gordon, Joey Logano and Carl Edwards. Jimmie Johnson crossed sixth and pulled to within three points of 11th-place finisher Matt Kenseth for the lead in the Chase standings.  Harvick's win vaulted him to third in the points, 25 back of Kenseth.  The fifth race in the Chase is next week at Charlotte Motor Speedway.
