GLADEVILLE, Tenn. - Kevin Harvick took a chance by changing only right-side tires on his final pit stop of the Nashville 300 NASCAR Nationwide Series race, but it paid off with a victory Saturday at Nashville Superspeedway.

A caution came out on lap 191 of 225 for Brian Keselowski's spin on pit road, and Harvick's Kevin Harvick Inc. pit crew changed only two tires, along with Brendan Gaughan. Harvick restarted first, with Kyle Busch second, Gaughan third,Carl Edwards fourth and Sorenson fifth.

Harvick inched out to the lead, while Sorenson quickly maneuvered his way to second place. Harvick held a steady lead until late, when Sorenson closed within a few car lengths. But he could get no closer.

Sorenson finished second, with Busch third, Justin Allgaier fourth and Brad Keselowski fifth. The rest of the top 10 were Edwards, Scott Wimmer, Joey Logano, Michael Annett and Gaughan.

Edwards holds the series points lead by 16 over Keselowski and 21 over Allgaier.
