Kevin Harvick was unable to pull out the win tonight in the Duck Commander 500, but he did make his team owner Tony Stewart proud by whining about another driver blocking near the end of the race.

"You might want to remind the mother f----- what happened to the 22 when he blocked.”, Harvick was heard saying over the radio, specifically complaining about Jimmie Johnson, who was in the lead at the time. Harvick had bumped the 22 car of Joey Logano out of the groove several laps earlier for daring to try and protect his position near the front.
“I’m really glad to see Kevin maintain this team’s proud tradition of complaining when other drivers are in our way”, said team co-owner Tony Stewart. “Whether it’s Brian Vickers less than a car length ahead of me at a road course, a Front Row Motorsports guy running next to Danica (Patrick), or a reporter trying to interview Kurt (Busch), we don’t let anyone stand in our way.”
Harvick has already qualified for the Chase for the Cup, but will not lose focus on individual races, nor individual drivers ahead of him on-track.
“It’s all about getting to the front”, Harvick said post-race. “And I’m not going to let ANYONE get in my way until I’m in first place—at which point anybody who tries to tap me will get attacked post-race.”
