Kevin Harvick is dominating NASCAR right now.

In all honesty there really isn’t any other way to say it. In the first three races of 2015 Harvick has himself three finishes inside of the top-two. If you go back to 2014, Harvick now has six consecutive finishes inside of the top-two. Oh and by the way, Harvick will be running in Phoenix this weekend which just so happens to be a track that he has dominated in his career.

Despite winning the title in 2014 many folks wondered what could have been with Harvick had he not had so much bad luck throughout the season. Over the last six races that he has run Harvick is giving everyone the answer to that question. It’s impossible to really make any driver a favorite to win the title this season given the new chase format. However, it’s also pretty hard to argue against Harvick repeating as a champion if he continues to run like this over the span of the entire season. Obviously Harvick will finish outside of the top-two at some point but in the meantime his fans should enjoy the ride.
