Truex Jr. Qualifies 3rd, Jones 30th at Sonoma Road Course

Kyle Busch ($10,200) - I really feel like Kyle is going to break through for that first win of the season real soon and I will ride the consistency until he does. "Just never could get track position".

As his farewell tour began in Sonoma - the track "gifted" him the sponsorship of three Labrador retriever puppies that will be raised and trained to help children with disabilities through Paws as Loving Support Assistance Dogs - Earnhardt is becoming more reflective with each passing race. I also have available my Race by Race Trends sheet you can view as well.

Christopher Bell led 152 laps in just his second career start in the series before a late wreck relegated him to 16th. But with Harvick's win, Stewart-Haas Racing cemented the idea that it will definitely be a factor come playoff time.

The top 10 finishers were Harvick, Clint Bowyer, Keselowski, Denny Hamlin, Kyle Busch, Dale Jr, Kurt Busch, Chase Elliott, Ryan Blaney, and Jamie McMurray. Truex Jr.is still up in 2nd place in the championship standings, but Jones is way back in 16th, which is still very respectable for a rookie driver, trying to fight his way into the playoffs.

The unique course at Sonoma Raceway features 11 turns and requires a lot of skill to navigate through the track without making a mistake. Also, remember that all the playoff points a driver earns - through stage wins (one point) and race wins (five points) - will stay with them through the first three rounds of the post-season should they advance.

"I've qualified really well here".

"I enjoyed watching his dad race and all the stories about being able to see the air", adds Kevin Roy.

Even 17 seasons into his career at NASCAR's top level, Kevin Harvick keeps finding ways to do new things.

"The last couple of weeks I've been driving a little bit smarter races where I haven't quite been conservative, but I haven't been as aggressive in the early going - just waited until the end, and I think that's paid off huge", Nemechek said.


"We pulled off the weekend sweep", said Harvick.

"Getting our first win with Ford, this has been a great journey for us as an organization and team", Harvick said.

Harvick doesn't presume that SHR has figured out all the details. But Harvick's vehicle was fast and the team knew if they'd get out front they'd have a good shot.

Harvick was on cruise control and conserving fuel in this win, which ended under caution after Kasey Kahne had a hard accident on the final lap.

A seven-time victor a year ago in the Truck Series, Byron, broke through just a week after an agonizingly close loss to Denny Hamlin at MI.

One of the big fan favorites is Kyle Larson, who is a native to Northern California. O'Donnell made no effort to play down the significance of Sunday's race. Tyler Reddick was third, followed by Ross Chastain and Dakoda Armstrong. Kraus is third (56 behind Gilliland), while Rodgers is 12 points back of Kraus in fourth. He led a race-high 99 laps in the Truck race Friday night.

No one has been anywhere close to as successful on the two road courses over the past two years than Joey Logano.

But this time Byron, who led 78 laps in JR Motorsports' No. 9 Chevrolet, was the driver with just enough to hang on. "I did all I could do". "If we can have a trouble-free race tomorrow, we'll have a chance to win when it's over".

"We were hoping to catch a yellow (caution)", said Keselowski.
