Harvick's Blown Engine Sends Another Contender To Rear For Folds of Honor QuikTrip 500
Kevin Harvick blew an engine after 35 laps in practice Saturday and will join four other former Sprint Cup Series champions at the back of the field in Sunday's Folds of Honor QuikTrip 500 despite putting up the fastest lap of the practice session.
Harvick, the defending champ, was scheduled to start on the outside of the front row for Sunday's Folds of Honor QuikTrip 500. The engine failure sends Harvick to the rear with Jimmie Johnson, Matt Kenseth, Jeff Gordon and Tony Stewart, who were all caught in Friday's qualifying delay kerfuffle.
"It's just a better show," Harvick said optimistically.

Pennzoil Makes Donation to PVA after Joey Logano's Win in Daytona 500; Raises the Stakes for Vegas
After Joey Logano jump-started his season by winning the Daytona 500 on 2/22 in the No. 22 Shell-Pennzoil Ford; Pennzoil commemorated the milestone victory by donating $22,222 to the Paralyzed Veterans of America (PVA). Upon learning about the donation Logano announced he would match the $22,222 contribution to his personal charity. To take the offer to the next level, Pennzoil is incentivizing Logano to bring the No. 22 to Victory Lane again at Las Vegas Motor Speedway on March 8th. Should he grab the checkered flag again in the No. 22 Pennzoil Platinum Ford, Pennzoil will add another '2' to the donation figure and donate an additional $222,222 to the PVA.
