martin looked like kasey kahne had something going on. >> they just ran out of room and hard to get off turn two when you don't ghit. >> but this is really the first attempt as the last caution that came out moments ago -- >> juan montoya had the race won. he was going to drive away from harvick and you can see right here, the crew chief really stressed about the caution. >> let's listen in to the radio chatter. >> you did the right thing right here. the 14 will come out second and we'll start out on the bottom. good work. >> 94 races since the last victory for juan pablo montoya, making colombia proud so far tonight. and as mike joy mentioned earlier, you can bet 100-to-1 to win this race. it he looked like he had it won but she in trouble here. >> the restart will be amazing. you can have three attempts at
8:01 pm
it. i know we'll have two. there's no way the cars on the front row will hold off the guys with two tires. you can't run as many laps as burton and mcmurray and allmendinger have run and hold off those with fresh tires. >> when they go down to turn one it's all bets off on this start. carl edwards last year clearly close to having a victory. he has a chance to redeem himself here. i'm a big race fan and it doesn't get better than this. short track racing on saturday night. a nascar sprint cup win hangs in the balance. >> and they have a full moon even if they there are clouds muddying the picture. juan pablo montoya said after kansas last week, we're fast. we just have to eliminate mistakes. you thought that was a guy being optimistic. but they have been fast and eliminated mistakes and was that
8:02 pm
close to victory. >> he and jamie mcmurray have been strong this year. they decided to roll the dice and start on the outside of front row. but i have been impressed with the chip ganassi team. it looked like if not for a crash by brian vickers they had it worked out. >> of the drivers in the top seven only carl edwards has won this year. some of the streaks and how long it's been for guys, you see jeff burton, virginia native, mark martin, certainly in that mix. we talked about montoya and jamie mcmurray, who is currently second, part of that chip ganassi racing. already tonight we have seen mini-streaks stopped. kyle busch three straight wins. >> don't you love how the complexion of the things changed. at first it looked like a joe gibbs racing night and now they are nowhere to be found. >> let's listen in on jeff
8:03 pm
burton and some radio chatter. >> it's what you're made of here, jeff. you can do it, buddy. you can do it. >> richard childress chatting. >> that's a guy that knows how to get things done. they have won races. but the challenge is great, chris. i don't see it happening. i don't see how that front row can hold off the guys charging on him. even just getting a start with used tires will be a challenge. they will be three and four wide down into one. >> i will give michael waltrip a decaf for this. >> jeff burton finished second six times since his last win. that was charlotte, october 2008, 157 races ago. here's the dilemma, burton, mcmurray, and allmendinger, their tires are 60 laps older than what is on carl edwards, tony stewart and juan montoya's cars. montoya has to start on the
8:04 pm
outside. if he was on the inside they would be six wide into turn one. >> carl edwards and tony stewart they went with just two right side tires. >> i like that gamble. they are in the best place i think. watch mcmurray. just get around here one time and then if something happens the race is over. you are thinking about getting to the white flag. >> after the white flag, the next flag ends the race. so here they come. jeff burton, jamie mcmurray, two chevrolets in front of allmendinger, edwards, stewart trying to thread the middle and make a hole where none exists. >> there goes carl on the outside. and kevin harvick in that 29. that's his teammate he's chasing. >> mcmurray is caught up way up the hill. coming to turn three looking for the white flag. on the outside, harvick with the lead. burton. bowyer. into turn one for the final time. logano.

8:06 pm
and fenders intact. and one man gets to burn down the house. >> it's not over just yet. >> look. >> been rubbing all night long. a little rubbing after the race. they're not hurting anything. >> tony stewart restarted up in the top five unofficially finishes 18th. let's see what happens here. >> he took stewart out of the groove. >> got up underneath and pushed him up the hill and everybody went by. >> cost four or five spots here. kenseth tries to come down track. get to the back bumper. >> no harm, no foul right there. he did get into allmendinger. matt was like i'm coming through.
8:07 pm

8:10 pm
show. some people angry but kevin harvick who was seventh on the restart, smiling as he gets his first victory of the season. krista voda is there for the celebration. >> kevin harvick has been to victory lane many times in his career. but there is something that feels different about this one. >> i want to thank everybody first. it has been a tough start to the season. the cars have been really fast. have to thank, jimmie johns, bad boy buggies, everybody participates in this car. a lot of people thought we might lay down this year. there is no lame in that game is there? i want to say happy birthday to kim back home. >> the phrase lame duck has been used before. but you had to make the decision whether to stay out or come in
8:11 pm
for the tires. i guess you made the right choice. >> sprint cup racing is something that you have to take chances and the guys that stayed out took chances. we had to take chances but we have been beat by tires a couple times this year. gil made the right call. >> his first win of 2013. the good night in richmond for kevin harvick. >> opinions expressed on the racetrack carried over in the garage. and your conversation between yourself and tony stewart what took place? >> we'll get a that in a minute. this was a solid run. we were top five all night. some guys cycled ahead of us. we were able to get back by them. all in all a great night to be in the top five and have restarts up front and lead some laps. you could just tell. green/white checkered, some guys are staying out and some are

8:13 pm
to win. >> we made the right call when we pitted and stayed out and we got the caution at the end. it was a no-brainer to take tires. what hurt us was restarting on the outside. when you are on the outside and people are bad tires, everything packs up. when you are on the outside where are you going to jump? on the inside you can jump to the guys what harvick did. when harvick went by and the 22 was there. i said we just got the get a finish. before this we had six really bad weeks. so we are in the 10 chevy this week and i'm proud of the guys. >> what were you thinking when the caution flag came out? >> really? really? >> thank you, juan. >> we know shakira was rooting for you no matter what. only four laps led the entire season for kevin harvick but he is in victory lane. we'll have more on the sprint post-race show.
