Stewart returns to victory circle at Sonoma - as owner

On Sunday he earned his first Monster Energy Cup series victory at Sonoma Raceway in California's wine country. His previous thirty-five wins have come while driving Chevrolets.

Over the past four Sonoma races, Menard has an average finish of 12th.

Clint Bowyer, a former Sonoma victor, wound up on the short end of the first round of qualifying, missing the 12-driver cut to advance to the last of two rounds of qualifying by.002 seconds. "I was out of tires; by the time I got done tearing the hell out of my vehicle, I was out of tires". His vehicle promoted Disney's Cars 3 movie, and was painted to resemble the cocky car-character competing for the Piston Cup in the Pixar films (the voice is provided by Owen Wilson).

After qualifying for the Monster Energy Cup Series on Saturday, the K&N Pro Series took to the twists and turns of Sonoma in the Carneos 200 which is the prelude to Sunday's much anticipated race here.

"It always feels good to win no matter what it is", said Harvick after Saturday's win. After the ensuing restart, Bowyer hit the wall and ended any chance he had at a good finish. Johnson has run in Xfinity Series five times with a best road course finish of eighth. (Teammate) Kurt (Busch) winning the Daytona 500, and we have run well. Earnhardt has had an up-and-down season, but has gathered some momentum lately with a sixth place finish at Daytona heading into arguably his best track. He is 8 in overall points but he also is without a win. But now that's he's guaranteed a spot in the playoffs, he and crew chief Rodney Childers can work on the set ups at other tracks during the second half of the season, and gamble for a win here or there if they want to.

McMurray enters the week in seventh place in the standings with 450 points. This battle between Truex and Larson for the point lead in the regular season may be the most interesting battle on the tracks. An influx of first-time and unexpected winners this season (Ryan Newman at Phoenix; Ricky Stenhouse Jr.at Talladega; Austin Dillon at Charlotte; and Ryan Blaney at Pocono) presented a scenario where perennial contenders who hadn't yet won such as Harvick, Kyle Busch, Denny Hamlin, Matt Kenseth, and Joey Logano (who won in April but doesn't get the benefits due to a post-race rules violation) all entered the weekend with their playoff futures still in doubt.

You have to be something of a NASCAR fan to understand all of that, maybe, and not all NASCAR fans have a firm grasp on the system.

For the second time in Sonoma Raceway history, two members of the same race team have taken both positions of the front row for the Toyota SaveMart 350. His only other road-course victory in NASCAR's top series came in 2006 at Watkins Glen. Veteran driver Kevin Harvick was able to lead 24 laps and hold on for his first win of 2017. He beat Josef Newgarden and defending points champion Simon Pagenaud to become the eighth victor in the ten IndyCar races this year.

Spithill was slow to the starting line ahed of Race 7 and that's all Burling, 26, needed to put his 50-foot foiling catamaran ahead for good, winning by 12 seconds.

With difficulty finding sponsorship, Nemechek said that he is trying not to make mistakes under the pressure of trying to perform. The race was run by Daniel Ricciardo, who drives for Red Bull Racing. He suffered minor damage and was forced to pit under green.
