Kevin Harvick shook off the rust of a two-month break in the Nascar schedule by winning the closed-door Real Heroes 400 on Sunday at the Darlington Raceway in South Carolina.

Californian Harvick seized the lead at the midway point and led for more than 150 laps to claim Nascar's first live competition since 8 March, when the series was shut down due to the coronavirus pandemic.

Harvick earned his 50th career victory in a race contested without fans and with a number of new health safety precautions.
