LOUDON, N.H., June 30 (UPI) -- Pole-winner Kevin Harvick Saturday captured the Camping World 200 Busch Series auto race at Loudon, N.H.

Harvick, who led 166 of the 200 laps, had to hold off a late challenge by Carl Edwards to get his second win this season on the Busch circuit.

"We kind of geared up for short runs, hoping it would come down to that kind of run at the end," Harvick said. "I knew (Edwards) was going to come after me on the bottom, try to get underneath us, and we were able to hold him off."

Harvick's win made him the 21st driver in as many races to win at the New Hampshire International Speedway, in his 28th career Busch race victory.

Matt Kenseth was third, Tony Stewart fourth and Denny Hamlin fifth.

After the 18th of 35 Series races, Edwards continues to lead the standings with 2,861 points, followed by David Reutimann (2,052), Harvick (1,993), David Ragan (1,949) and Jason Leffler (1,895).
