Kevin Harvick wasnt in much of a md to talk about his back-against-the-wall, clutch-race-winning ability on Sunday afternn. Hed just completed a frustrating 500 laps -- make that 498 laps, two laps down -- at Martinsville Speedway, where he finished 20th.He has had worse finishes in Chase for the Sprint Cup races this year, but this marked the first time Harvick probably finished where he deserved. He had a speeding penalty early in the race, but that didnt impact his finish.The rare just-missed-it kind of day has put Harvick in a 16-point hole from the current Chase cutoff. Sure, Harvick has faced must-win situations and moved on in the past and Phoenix (where he has won five of the last six and six of the last eight) follows this weekends race at Texas, but how many times can he snatch wins and save his season?Harvick was asked about the challenge Sunday, how he views his chances of making up the points or earning the win necessary to be one of the four drivers with a shot to win the championship in a couple of weeks at Homestead-Miami Speedway.I havent really lked at it, Harvick said. We will see.And then he walked away.Now heres what makes Harvicks challenge possibly even greater: He might not get much help from his Stewart-Haas Racing teammates. None of them comes off Martinsville feeling all that well and none has any momentum that Harvick can feed off of this weekend at Texas.Kurt Busch, who also is still alive in the Chase, finished 22nd and sits 18 points behind the current Chase cutoff.Tony Stewart finished 26th at Martinsville -- after appearing fairly stout in practice -- and remains 14th in the standings in his final season.Danica Patrick was 24th, and sits 23rd in the standings.We were slow all weekend, Harvick said about Martinsville. We could just never get the handle on it.If there is any gd news for Harvick and Busch, its that nothing from the short-track Martinsville correlates for the next couple of tracks.Harvick said he will try to focus himself and not the other Chase competitors.Its really about being intense in our own little bubble, he said in a news release. I know, for us, it seems like there is more to navigate than there was last year just for the fact that weve had so many things go wrong up to this point.Weve been fortunate to win a couple of races, but it seems like every other week weve had to navigate something or work through something to get the best finish we can. Hopefully, we can clean all those things up and do a little better over the final couple weeks.Busch sounds a little less optimistic.I have no idea [how we bounce back], but we will figure something out, Busch said. We came all this way, we wont give up now.Harvick already has won two Chase races this year after round-opening frustrating events. He won at New Hampshire the week after losing a lap early at Chicagoland. And he won at Kansas after a Charlotte race where an oil pump seal came apart.Hell have to dig deep again now at Texas, where he started 22nd and finished 10th earlier this year. Busch was ninth.They most likely need top-5 finishes or other drivers to have trouble to enter Phoenix with a shot to advance by points instead of facing a must-win situation.They at least have the solace of knowing theyre not the worst off among the Chase finalists. Carl Edwards had a tire issue at Martinsville that relegated him to a 36th-place finish, and he sits 32 points behind the Chase cutoff.Were going to continue to give it our best and go after it, Busch said. A win would be wonderful. But still, at the same time, guys like Carl Edwards [also] had trouble last weekendMy teammate Kevin Harvick, we all struggled at SHR. But you never know whats going to happen when you go into the next race. You go business as usual, but [with] not t much stress. Raheem Sterling England Jersey .
