Kevin Harvick, driver of the No. 29 Budweiser/Armed Forces Chevrolet, won the 52nd running of the Coca-Cola 600 at Charlotte Motor Speedway.

"The chemistry and the way everybody is on this race team – money can’t buy that," said Harvick. "It’s not about having the fastest car all the time. It’s about putting your car in the position to win, and we’ve been doing that an awful lot."

This is his first victory in a points-paying race at Charlotte Motor Speedway.

David Ragan finished second in the No. 6 UPS Ford, while Joey Logano finished third in the No. 20 Home Depot Toyota.

The race came down to a last lap pass, as Dale Earnhardt Jr. ran out of gas while in the lead.
