Harvick Heads for Victory Lane in Sonoma

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

"All I had to do was manage the vehicle and not have to do anything but take care of it toward the end", Harvick said.

Harvick crossed the finish line as the race ended under caution. Harvick had a cozy nine-second lead over Stewart-Haas teammate Clint Bowyer before the caution.

"I tore the hell out of it", Bowyer said of a vehicle that was covered with dents and patches.

Tagging along with the success of Cars 3 from Disney's PIXAR studios. But with the talent of diverse drivers at lower levels finally starting to show, all they need is backing from sponsors and teams to make the push in the Monster Energy Cup Series.

"We've got plenty of oil now", Inglebright joked. This is definitely one of his best chances to get one.

Matt Kenseth: A 20th place finish at Sonoma bumped Kenseth out of the playoff picture but the two-time Daytona 500 victor will have probably his best shot at clinching this weekend.

There were also several different strategies when it came to pitting, but Jimmie Johnson chose to stay out longer than most other drivers to finish first in Stage 2.

It is McMurray's best qualifying position of the season. He is 8 in overall points but he also is without a win.

When Tony Stewart left NASCAR last season, there was a hole left in his fans' hearts.

Lap Leaders: K. Larson 1-9; M. Truex Jr. We're 10 races from the cutoff race at Richmond, and look at the names that haven't won a race yet: Kyle Busch, Chase Elliott, Joey Logano (whose only win was encumbered, which is NASCAR-ese for doesn't count toward the playoffs) and Matt Kenseth. Denny Hamlin is just outside the Top 5 on this list due to his poor road course showing in 2015 but last season finished runner-up here at Sonoma and then won the race at Watkins Glen. So far this season, he has three wins but he's missed on the times that he hasn't won, which has sunk him a little bit.

"It was interesting listening to some of the [Joe] Gibbs [Racing] drivers and the gamesmanship they were playing. they pitted [while Harvick didn't in the final 30 laps] and came back out and then immediately started screaming [about] debris on the race track", said Stewart, who was critical of NASCAR for throwing a late debris caution at MI last week. Helio Castroneves, the pole sitter, and Will Power rounded out the top five. Kraus is third (56 behind Gilliland), while Rodgers is 12 points back of Kraus in fourth. The race was run by Daniel Ricciardo, who drives for Red Bull Racing.

Stenhouse Jr was not so fortunate though, as the front wing was ripped apart, and although his auto limped around to pit lane, the damage was too extensive for the Rousch Fenway driver to continue. The third podium place when to Canadian Lance Stroll, whose Williams was edged in a photo-finish by Bottas.

Johnson can breathe easy as he has three wins to get into the Chase, and he has been very good at Sonoma with a 2010 win and a finishing average of 12.5 in 15 starts, including 13 previous year. "There's still a lot of things we don't know about our cars that we learn on a weekly basis, and that's the fun part, is to know the upside potential to this whole deal".

The Hendrick Motorsports development driver, competing for JR Motorsports in the Xfinity Series this year, only has five years of experience in stock cars, and many view him as having considerable potential. He came out fifth, behind Vettel. If SHR gets three playoff drivers, that's a quarter of the field, so it can't be ignored.
