   CONCORD, N.C. (AP) -- Kevin Harvick hasn't forgotten how little interest there was in him at the start of the season, when few expected much from him as he entered his final year with Richard Childress Racing.
 
   He used two victories during SpeedWeeks at Daytona to prove this wasn't going to be a throwaway season, and added regular-season wins at Richmond and Charlotte to become championship eligible.
 
   Now he's an actual threat to win his first Sprint Cup title.
 
   A win last week at Kansas Speedway moved Harvick to third in the Chase for the Sprint Cup championship standings. It has allowed Harvick to look back on that lonely day at Daytona, when most everybody had written him off as a non-factor in what was supposed to be a lame duck year.
