It's a clichéd statement in the sports world, but the term "woodshed whooping" perfectly sums up Kevin Harvick's run in the Pennzoil Las Vegas 400.

Kyle Larson topped the chart in second Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series practice at Las Vegas Motor Speedway. The driver of the No. 42 Chip Ganassi Racing Chevrolet posted a time of 28.791 and a speed of 187.559 mph.
Kevin Harvick strolled into the Las Vegas Motor Speedway deadline room a few minutes early for his media availability. Sporting a hoodie and a jovial attitude, and despite his run a year ago in Nevada, his confidence was sky-high coming off his victory at Atlanta Motor Speedway.
