Kevin Harvick earned his fourth Nationwide Series win of the season on Saturday with a victory for JR Motorsports at Chicagoland Speedway.

Harvick took the lead on a two-tire pit stop 39 laps from the finish when Kyle Busch took four tires. Harvick led for 43 laps in all.

Kyle Larson finished second and Busch settled for third after leading 141 of the 200 laps.

Ryan Blaney was fourth, followed by Trevor Bayne.

Nationwide points leader Chase Elliott finished 10th and lost a little ground in the championship race to JR Motorsports teammate Regan Smith, who was seventh. Elliott's lead is now 18 points.

The victory was the ninth this season for JR Motorsports, and Harvick tied Brad Keselowski for most wins in a season for the team.
