Coronavirus: Kevin Harvick wins in NASCAR’s return to racing

Kevin Harvick won Sunday at South Carolina’s Darlington Raceway in NASCAR’s return to racing.

The season had been postponed because of the coronavirus.

It had been 71 days since the series’ last event. There were no fans inside the speedway.

Alex Bowman finished second, followed by Kurt Busch, Chase Elliott and Denny Hamlin.

This was the first of 20 races across seven Southern states between now and June 21. Darlington will host two more NASCAR races over the next three days.
