RICHMOND, Va. — Kevin Harvick sped away on fresh tires to win Sunday night’s Toyota Owners 400 in a greenwhite- checkered-flag finish at Richmond International Raceway, leaving a grup of drivers with widely divergent emotions in his wake.

Harvick beat Clint Bowyer to the finish line by .343 seconds to win his first NASCAR Sprint Cup Series race of the season, his second at Richmond and the 20th of his career.

Joey Logano ran third, Juan Pablo Montoya came home fourth after leading until the final caution, and Jeff Burton finished fifth after staying out on old tires for the final two-lap run that took the event six laps beyond its posted distance.



More than 1,000 drug tests done on athletes annually.

For years, the Macon County School System has been drug testing athletes each year inhouse. Headed by Dan Moore, director of personnel, drug tests were performed on every student athlete in the district on an annual basis. Moore has been searching for ways to contract out the services at a rate that would still be advantageous for the school system, but was unsuccessful until this year.

Beginning next school year, Macon County Schools will employ the services of Preventative Drug Testing Services, LLC (PDTS), a North Carolina limited liability company, to drug test athletes in the district. Macon County's current drug testing policy is to test every student that participates in any athletics at Franklin High School, Highlands School, Nantahala, and Macon Middle School. During the 2012-13 school year, Moore and his staff conducted 1,076 drug screens on student athletes.
