Adapting on-the-fly will be necessary this weekend, since there will again be no practice or qualifying round before the race as part of NASCAR's coronavirus event protocols.
"If you had to circle a place to get your mojo back, this would probably be it," Stevens said about Busch.
NO. 4 KEVIN HARVICK
A driver not lacking for mojo is Kevin Harvick. The current points leader stands alone in finishing in the top-10 in each of the opening eight races this season. Last year at the track, however, Harvick struggled. He finished in 13th at the Food City 500 and exited early from the August Night Race at Bristol with a clutch issue.
But the No. 4 is riding a hot streak right now. Harvick led the most laps on Thursday at Charlotte and has finished in second, first, third, fifth and tenth, respectively, in the last five races.
Before the season, Harvick said he was looking forward to the new downforce rules package, which is similar to the 2018 package his team raced well with. The veteran driver could be back to Victory Lane.
