Rivals Busch and Harvick Return to Truck Series To Contest Owners Championship

With the new rule NASCAR implemented in 2011 that only allows drivers to accumulate points in one of NASCAR’s series, past Kansas Speedway winners Kyle Busch and Kevin Harvick are not eligible to earn driver points in the Camping World Truck Series. However, the two Sprint Cup drivers are going head-to-head for the owners championship in the Truck Series. Kyle Busch Motorsports won the championship in 2010 and Kevin Harvick Inc. won it in 2009. Kyle Busch Motorsports currently holds the top spot in the standings by 33 points over Kevin Harvick Inc. Both owner-drivers will race Saturday at Pocono Raceway and it will be the third time in 2011 the two drivers have faced off in the series. Busch has beaten Harvick on both previous occasions.
