RIDGEWAY, Va., April 3 (UPI) -- Kevin Harvick followed up last week's victory in California with another win Sunday, taking the Goody's Fast Relief 500 at Martinsville Speedway.

Harvick picked up his second Sprint Cup straight win when he passed Dale Earnhardt Jr. for the lead with just four laps remaining and then went on to edge him by just 0.7 seconds at the finish line.

It was Harvick's 16th career Sprint Cup win.

Kyle Busch led for most of the race -- 151 laps -- but ended in third place.

Fourth place went to Juan Pablo Montoya and Jeff Gordon secured the fifth spot.

Denny Hamlin's streak of three straight wins at Martinsville was snapped with a 12th-place finish Sunday.
