|Harvick won for ninth time at Phoenix.|
Harvick, whose win last week at Las Vegas was tainted by two violations of NASCAR rules and a fairly hefty penalty on his Stewart-Haas Racing team, earned his third consecutive NASCAR Cup Series race by capturing the checkered flag Sunday at ISM Raceway (formerly Phoenix Raceway).
He didn't dominate the race, but a driver in a foul mood focused on winning is the type of Harvick who typically races at Phoenix in November with championship spots on the line and not in March during the early part of the season.
"I've been mad as all get out because this team does a great job," Harvick said. "This organization does a great job and we've got fast race cars. And to take that away from those guys just really pissed me off last week."
