Saturday March 31, 2012 – When Kevin Harvick wins the pole in a truck race, he seems to win on race day! In four previous races where he took the pole, Harvick went on to win. Starting from the pole Saturday, Kevin Harvick lead all but 2 laps of the NASCAR Camping World Truck race at Martinsville Speedway. His domination of the rest of the field seemed effortless, if you can say such a thing about a truck race at Martinsville. The Paper Clip is notorious for destroying trucks, but Harvick avoided burning up brake parts, tires and rear end gears which put several trucks in the pits. Every lap seemed smooth with solid work in the pits by his crew. No one really challenged him all day. His teammate at Richard Childress Racing, Ty Dillon, had an almost equally impressive drive. Dillon followed Harvick in the number 2 spot almost the entire race, except for running in the lead the 2 laps that Harvick didn’t occupy first place.
