Kevin Harvick has picked up right where he left off at the end of last season.

The defending Sprint Cup champ has dominated in the first five races of the 2015 season.  To date, he has posted two victories and five top five finishes.

At last weekend’s Auto Club 500, Harvick and Kurt Busch combined to lead 99 of the 209 laps, but it was Brad Keselowski that left with the checkered flag, earning his first win of the young season.

Harvick finished in second and Busch landed in third.

In the first 2015 edition of NASCAR Power Rankings at The Wife Hates Sports, Kevin Harvick holds a commanding lead over the field.  Joey Logano sits in second place, followed by Dale Earnhardt Jr., Martin Truex Jr. and Brad Keselowski.
