Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series

Late dash gives Harvick Texas win, berth in final

FORT WORTH -- Kevin Harvick gave the checkered flag to a young fan he brought onto the track to take a selfie -- one with the winning driver and car that will have a shot at another NASCAR Cup championship.

22 Ford of Team Penske locked in, the series goes to Phoenix next week with only two spots up for grabs for the championship run at Homestead.

They are comfortably above the cut line for points, but Chase Elliott or any of Harvick's three SHR teammates -- Clint Bowyer, Aric Almirola and Kurt Busch -- could advance with a victory in Phoenix.

Truex, who was close to clinching a title spot before that bump-and-run by Logano on the final lap to win at Martinsville last week, finished ninth.

Just short of 100 laps into the race, Johnson got loose and wiggled in front of Byron, who ended up in a spin after making contact with his teammate.
