Pre-race coverage of the Toyota Owners 400.
From Darlington Raceway near Darlington, South Carolina. "The Track Too Tough to Tame" earned its reputation with at least 20 drivers getting "Darlington Stripes" applied to the right side of their car as they ventured too close to the wall. Pole sitter Kevin Harvick was dominant, leading over 235 laps before a late caution flag. Harvick took 4 tires while several other drivers took only 2, putting Harvick in fifth place on the restart. But Harvick's car with 4 new tires was unbeatable as he passed Dale Earnhardt Jr. on the last lap to win his second race of the season.
