Kevin Harvick won The Real Heroes 400 at Darlington on Sunday in NASCAR’s first race back since the season was halted due to the coronavirus pandemic.
This was Harvick's 50th career NASCAR Cup Series victory, making him the 14th driver to accomplish that milestone, NASCAR said.
With the win, Harvick broke a tie with Tony Stewart, and is now tied with Junior Johnson and Ned Jarrett for 12th place on the all-time list.
No fans were in attendance to abide by health and safety guidelines.
The event honored health care workers as part of the The Real Heroes Project, a collaborative initiative among more than a dozen sports leagues to recognize and pay tribute to medical professionals on the front lines fighting Covid-19.
NASCAR is one of the first professional sports leagues to resume competition amid the pandemic.
