Clevite’s Engine Parts Cross Finish Line First with Kevin Harvick as He Wins Daytona 500

High-adrenalin Daytona 500 racing excitement flowed through the NASCAR drivers, pit crews and fans alike as Kevin Harvick's No. 29 Chevrolet crossed the finish line first with the car's nose ahead of Mark Martin to win Sunday’s exciting 49th running of "The Great American Race."

High-adrenalin Daytona 500 racing excitement flowed through the NASCAR drivers, pit crews and fans alike as Kevin Harvick’s No. 29 Chevrolet crossed the finish line first with the car’s nose ahead of Mark Martin to win Sunday’s exciting 49th running of “The Great American Race.” For the challenging 200 laps, the Richard Childress Racing team Chevrolet relied on precision high performance Clevite 77 engine bearings in the successful bid to capture the prestigious Daytona 500 trophy.

"Clevite congratulates Richard Childress Racing and driver Kevin Harvick on the rare double victory this weekend at Daytona. Winning the Busch race on Saturday with a motor built by 2006 Clevite NASCAR/Busch Engine Builder of the Year Lanny Barnes, Harvick went on to make it a double on Sunday at the Daytona 500. The Clevite/RCR customer relationship goes back many years and Clevite is proud to be their engine bearing supplier,” said Bill McKnight, director of brand development for Clevite Engine Parts.

“This is outstanding performance in the extremely competitive NASCAR Nextel and Busch Series races,” McKnight said.

Clevite Engine Parts has long been an integral part of the Daytona 500 racing scene, and all of the racing teams who competed in the 49th running of the Daytona 500 used various Clevite high performance racing parts in their cars. Clevite, Clevite 77, Victor Reinz and Perfect Circle are official NASCAR Performance Products.

Many of the advanced engineering technologies that Clevite develops for their NASCAR Performance Products are later offered in Clevite’s aftermarket parts, especially the high performance lines of Clevite 77 engine bearings and Perfect Circle piston rings. Clevite’s exclusive moly-graphite TriArmor bearing coating, which helps to ensure longer bearing life, is one example of a NASCAR inspired technology that is now available to enthusiasts and engine builders at all levels of racing. Clevite’s Internet address is www.engineparts.com.
