But his greatest achievement at Sonoma Raceway took place from 1999-2001 where he stood atop the podium in three consecutive southwest series races. I also have available my Race by Race Trends sheet you can view as well.

Second-place Clint Bowyer had his best run of the season despite a auto that looked badly beaten up.

"It was an awesome day", said Stewart-Haas team co-owner Tony Stewart.

Busch led three laps at Sonoma and finished fifth, his third consecutive top-10 under the guidance of Beshore.

Lap Leaders: K. Larson 1-9; M. Truex Jr.

Larson, a native of Elk Grove, continued his hot weekend at the Sonoma County road course by winning the pole position with the fastest lap in the final round of qualifying on Saturday.

The victory was the first of the season for Harvick and it came under caution as Kasey Kahne wrecked on the final lap. And I still get to be a part of this. "I told my guys they did an fantastic job and we hope to come back stronger". Bowyer and Keselowski provided a challenge, but weren't able to stop Harvick from closing out the victory. Winning always makes things easier, especially when handling the frustrations of just not knowing exactly how the Ford will react in certain situations and still learning software and all their tools. "We had a couple opportunities to get there but just came up a little bit short".

"I was thinking about taking a year off until I found a new sponsor", Day said.

Harvick doesn't presume that SHR has figured out all the details.

"We have a big group of fans who've been very loyal and just stuck behind us, and are very vocal", says Earnhardt. After the ensuing restart, Bowyer hit the wall and ended any chance he had at a good finish.

Larson leads Truex in the points race by five points.

"So, I spent a lot of time in Napa Valley", said Kyle Larson. "It gave us a lot of momentum going into this week".

The "FOX Sports Visor Cam", several years in development, was tested on Danica Patrick's helmet Friday afternoon and will remain for its race debut as the Stewart-Haas Racing driver pilots the #10 Code 3 Associates Ford Fusion on Sunday. Tyler Reddick was third, followed by Ross Chastain and Dakoda Armstrong.

Hamilton now second all-time with F1 poles: Lewis Hamilton moved to second on the all-time list for Formula One pole positions when he used a brilliant late surge to beat Mercedes teammate Valtteri Bottas at the Azerbaijan Grand Prix on Saturday. Like Bowyer, he also is a road course specialist. 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. "I did all I could do".

"(Truex) was the guy that we were going to have to race all the way to the end", Harvick said.
