Sonoma victory is special for Kevin Harvick

Cup Series first Israeli driver Alon Day'NASCAR changed my life

Power won last year's race at the rural Wisconsin road course. That was like taking candy from babies. The green flag drops at 12:20.

Even 17 seasons into his career at NASCAR's top level, Kevin Harvick keeps finding ways to do new things. His vast experience on road circuits led one to believe it was the vehicle and not him that was the problem.

"I can say this now, but I had mixed emotions about how the year was going to go just because of the fact that we had a lot on our plate to switch over", Harvick said. But their playoff possibilities are lower because Kurt Busch, Ryan Newman, Austin Dillon, and Ricky Stenhouse Jr., who have fewer overall points each have a win-and wins are the prime factor in seeding the sixteen playoff drivers.

But that dominating drive was no more impressive than Busch's third-place finish a year later in a vehicle fielded by owner James Finch.

"It's a great day". Luckily for us, winning isn't everything when it comes to DraftKings. "My vehicle got hit on the sides a couple of time, the nose is broken off - it looked like it should at the end of the race". He would race from the back to the front a couple of times Sunday afternoon, and pick off 10 spots over the final 17 laps to secure the Top-10 finish.

Harvick was on cruise control and conserving fuel in the race that ended under caution after Kasey Kahne had a hard accident on the final lap. Harvick was the most aggressive, building an eight-second lead over the rest of the field.

Clint Bowyer, driver of the No. 14 Mobil 1 Ford Fusion for Stewart-Haas Racing (SHR), is certainly an expert on racing in the Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series and, admittedly, he's witnessed his fare share of redneck behavior in his lifetime, the kind referred to by Foxworthy.

"It feels good", Larson said of his final qualifying lap, which secured his third pole of the season, his first at Sonoma and the fourth of his premier-series career. However, a lap 34 spin led to a 35th place finish.

For the Bakersfield, Calif., native, the Sonoma win was an important item to remove from the bucket list.

"I thought our vehicle was fast to win at the end of the race", said Harvick.

"The setup I had with Penske when we won in 2011, I remembered as much as I could and told the team, and they put it in the best that they could", Busch said. I was surprised to see the lap time that I ran pop up on my dash but we'll take it. I was out of tires.

"[Allmendinger] down there, I just didn't see him and knocked the whole front end off our auto", Bowyer said.

"They're stacked up behind them, and it's just a recipe for disaster".

After restarting first, Johnson went on to lead the remaining laps in the segment and earn his first stage win of the season. Somebody else I had a really good run on and I thought they were going to give it to me, and they didn't. Brad spun me out.

They included Billy Johnson, Josh Bilicki, Tommy Regan, Kevin O'Connell, and Alon Day.

"The speed was there especially at the end of the race". Margin of Victory: Caution. Edwards, who was less than 10 laps from claiming his first championship a year ago, walked away from the sport before this season, but he made a sponsor appearance at Sonoma this weekend.
