Kevin Harvick has a selective memory—and he’s happy about it.
When Harvick came to Auto Club Speedway last year, he was riding a three-race winning streak and trying to join the elite four-in-a-row club. But Harvick’s bid to win at the two-mile track didn’t survive the first stage of the Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series race. Harvick was racing for position against Kyle Larson on lap 38 when the two cars collided near the exit from turn two.
