Harvick gets win in Speedweeks opener at Daytona

DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. (AP) -- Kevin Harvick won the exhibition Sprint Unlimited race by dominating the final two segments of Saturday night's Speedweeks opener.

It was Harvick's third win in the last five years in the non-points race at Daytona International Speedway. He held off challenges from Tony Stewart and Greg Biffle on the final lap to win in his Richard Childress Racing Chevrolet.

It's a strong opener for what's going to be Harvick's final year with RCR. He's already signed on to drive for Stewart-Haas Racing in 2014.

Harvick broke his engine trying to do a celebratory burnout and his car had to be pushed to Victory Lane.

Biffle finished second and Joey Logano was third in his Penske Racing debut. Stewart was fourth and Matt Kenseth fifth in his Joe Gibbs Racing debut.
