Who won the NASCAR race yesterday? Full results for Sunday's Folds of Honor QuikTrip 500 at Atlanta

Sporting News

That's three wins for Kevin Harvick at Atlanta Motor Speedway, which means three tributes to the man who raced in the No. 3 car.

Harvick eased to victory Sunday in the Folds of Honor QuikTrip 500, his 51st career Cup Series victory. As he did in his previous two wins, he then took a reverse victory lap to remember the late Dale Earnhardt, whom Harvick succeeded at Richard Childress Racing in 2001 following Earnhardt's death in the Daytona 500.

"First [career] win came for me here at Atlanta and this is just a race track that I've taken a liking to," Harvick told reporters. "You always have those memories and now you want to celebrate everything that Dale Earnhardt did for this sport. To come here and be able to do that with wins and go to victory lane is pretty special."
