Kevin Harvick dominated a rain-delayed NASCAR Nationwide Series race as Friday night turned into Saturday morning at Richmond International Raceway.

Brian Scott took the pole early in the day, but because of storms around the area, the race didn't start until about 10:30 p.m. -- more than three hours after the scheduled time.

Harvick led 202 of the 250 laps on the three-quarter-mile oval, crossing the finish line at 12:25 a.m., for his first Nationwide victory of the year and his seventh RIR triumph lifetime in NASCAR's No. 2 series. He also has won two Sprint Cup races this year.

Scott led 45 of the other 48 laps.

Chase Elliott, a young prodigy who raced at Langley Speedway on his way up the ladder, took second place. That gave Junior Motorsports its first-ever 1-2 finish.

"We were just a little tight right there in the corner," Elliott said in an ESPN2 interview. "I just need to get up on the wheel a little bit harder next week, next time."

Kyle Busch placed third.
