Kevin Harvick in 2001 was picked by Richard Childress as a replacement driver when the late Dale Earnhardt was killed in the Daytona 500 season-opener. Harvick driving in only his 3rd NASCAR Cup race would find victory lane at Atlanta Speedway launching his driving career.

Harvick would pick up his second victory of the season after dominating 151 of 325 laps winning the Folds of Honor QuikTrip 500, his third victory at Atlanta Speedway.

“First [career] win came for me here at Atlanta and this is just a race track that I’ve taken a liking to,” Harvick said. “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.
