Kevin Harvick sweeps Sonoma races

  • Denny Hamlin has hilarious response to trivia question about past winners at Sonoma

For the second year in a row, Tony Stewart was cherishing victory at Sonoma Raceway.

But the sometimes-ornery Harvick wasn't stressing out over a winless 2017.

Helio Castroneves won the pole at qualifying on Saturday, turning in a lap time of 1:41.30.

Some of the lesser NASCAR teams bring in specialists for the road courses because their usual drivers don't have the background to tackle places like Sonoma, but the best they can hope for in those cars is not to leave them completely mangled.

With strategy playing a huge role in the race - the first road course race to contain stages - the running order was constantly being shuffled, as some drivers made a decision to pit two or three laps before the end of a stage, those in with a sniff of stage points electing to stay on track until the stage ended, and others not pitting at either time. "Somehow, I got the opportunity to test in European NASCAR and it went the best way (it could), and two and a half years later, I'm doing my first race ever in the Cup".

"After he said that, I don't think he was going to win anyway". That is a testament to just how great he is on this track. Overall it's been good here for our Furniture Row Racing team and I am looking forward to tomorrow.

Before the wreck and caution, Harvick was leading teammate Clint Bowyer by over 8 seconds.

Asked after the race how much it may have helped his team's cause by Truex making a premature exit from the race, Childers quipped, "Well, are you talking about before or after he said, 'Tell Harvick to kiss my ass?" Other short odds to win are Kyle Busch (11/2), while Jimmie Johnson, Kevin Harvick and Kurt Busch each have 15/2 odds.

White House paints Handel win as Trump triumph
In the age of Trump, big ideas are over-rated, but it seems clear that it takes more to win than simply being anti-Trump. Moreover, the race garnered the attention of the entire nation, including the likes of President Donald Trump .

Clint Bowyer came in second, posting his ninth top 10 finish in 12 races in Sonoma and his sixth top 10 finish this year. This battle between Truex and Larson for the point lead in the regular season may be the most interesting battle on the tracks. The entire fleet of Penske drivers chased him across the finish line as he recorded his forty-first win in the series, putting him only one victory behind Michael Andretti, who is third on the wins list. "I wish I had more time for golf, but I've been really busy this year". "I told my guys they did an wonderful job and we hope to come back stronger".

The victory was the 36th of Harvick's career.

Who knows, he might even make it look easy. On a day when massive upheaval could have on the menu, we got simply a little bit of disruption instead.

The past six weeks have been better, and Harvick said that is just part of the growing pains.

Harvick doesn't presume that SHR has figured out all the details. "I feel like we've been close a couple times but never put it all together". After the ensuing restart, Bowyer hit the wall and ended any chance he had at a good finish. Truex is five points behind Larson for the point lead, look for him to retake the lead this weekend. They struggled off the truck posting the 24th fastest time but did improve in practice two ranking 18th. Place differential will be important in finding our value this week but no driver in the last four races here has finished Top 5 after starting outside of the 20th starting position. "It gave us a lot of momentum going into this week".

The Bakersfield native also raced to victory in Saturday's NASCAR's K&N Series race - the Carneros 200 - then added the icing on the cake with his Cup win Sunday. Tyler Reddick was third, followed by Ross Chastain and Dakoda Armstrong.

With 43 laps remaining in the final stage, Truex Jr. regained the lead. While behind a safety vehicle, Lewis Hamilton, who was in the lead, appeared to slow in front of Sebastian Vettel, causing Vettel to drive into him. "I did all I could do". "In 2008, we went cross-country to California to visit with her college roommate, and I said, 'OK, I'll go, on one condition-we stop by Indy.' So that was the Brickyard".
