With a defending Sprint Cup champion already posting multiple wins, the sport’s only female driver showing solid consistency, and its “comeback kid” winning today at Richmond, Stewart-Haas Racing has shown itself to be the most-dominate team in the sport, with all three cars showing improvement.

“This is a team win”, Kurt Busch said from victory lane. “To see where this team has come from, to where all three drivers are doing as well as we are, it just goes to show you how much focus we have on a full-team effort here.”
Kevin Harvick, driver of the 4 car, has been nearly unbeatable this year. Kurt Busch, in the 41 car, has come back from an early-season suspension to post his first win after several top-5 finishes. And even Danica Patrick, in the 10 car, has posted a number of top-10s while cutting down on DNFs.
“I’m really proud with what we’re doing here”, said team owner Gene Haas. “It’s one thing to have a winning car, but to have all three competing for wins, that really makes all the work worthwhile.
“I think this’ll give us the confidence we need to put another team out there on the track—in Formula 1 of course.”
Team co-owner Tony Stewart was also pleased, throwing his equipment in the team trailer in celebration.
