Former NASCAR driver Jeff Burton had his say on regular-season winner Kevin Harvick’s failure to qualify for the Championship race.
Harvick turned out one of the most dominant performances the regular season has seen with seven wins in the 26 races. He added two more wins in the Round of 16. However, a disappointing showing in the Round of 8 resulted in his elimination from the Championship race.
His dominant season came to nothing as he won’t be able to run for the championship and add to his one title.
Speaking about Harvick, Burton said:
“With this playoff that you had today, you cannot just rest on what you did in the regular season.
“Not that they did, but they had some bad luck with the tire going down, and secondly, they didn’t run well.”
