Harvick wins at Sonona for 1st victory of season

Harvick wins at Sonona for 1st victory of season”

Patrick, who started sixth and finished 10th, was involved in two wrecks that banged up her auto and cost her time. Vettel was given a 10-second penalty. Harvick led 24 of the 110 laps on his way to the winner's circle.

Brad Keselowski stayed out, taking the lead.

Over the final 26 laps, Keselowski, now with a tire advantage, charged through the field.

Through varying pit strategies, Bowyer was able to pick his way through the field to second.

Keselowski's strategy nearly worked.

"The Freightliner Ford was really good today", Keselowski said.

"Getting our first win with Ford - this has been a great journey for us as an organization and team", Harvick said.

And for those who questioned the No. 2 team's strategy, the proof was in the finish. Everybody back in Denver, thank you for just insane fast cars. "By the time I got done tearing the hell out of my auto, I was out of tires".

Two separate incidents involved the No. 10 Stewart-Haas Racing Ford of Danica Patrick - although neither was her fault and she actually drove a pretty solid race after starting from the sixth position.

KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (AP) - Larry Warbasse emerged from a three-rider breakaway to win the USA road national championship on Sunday, while Amber Neben added the women's title to her time trial gold from the previous day. But Earnhardt spun to the inside of Patrick's auto bring out the first caution.

Larson, who was on the inside of the others, made contact with Earnhardt in the middle, who in turn went up into Patrick. A chain-reaction collision sent Patrick spinning into the path of her boyfriend, Ricky Stenhouse Jr., whose Ford was damaged beyond fix.

Since Kahne was off the track, NASCAR held off the yellow flag until midway through the final lap and Harvick was able to complete the lap and race past the checkered flag.

But the driver who will retire from full-time Monster Energy NASCAR Cup racing at the end of the season adopted a more global perspective after the race. He did, however, win the K&N Series race at Sonoma on Saturday and it may have given him some inside knowledge. "I think for me, that was kind of like, 'All right, you've got to do something yourself to get better.'". People never forget who you were. "I mean this Toyota was so good today".

Kevin Harvick played a waiting game Sunday at NASCAR'S 29 annual Toyota/Save Mart 350 at the Sonoma Raceway.

With 43 laps remaining in the final stage, Truex Jr. regained the lead. The legendary course should be much more familiar to the top drivers as they try to climb up the standings. Hamlin and Kyle Busch rounded out the top five. "We didn't have quite enough at the end. But after everything happened, to get second is really good".

"We all expected that Kevin would have got it sooner than this, but there's just been some bad luck, some different venues that he's been really, really strong at that we just had some weird and bad luck that have crept in to his program", Stewart-Haas Racing team co-owner Tony Stewart said. We didn't have a very good auto that run before.

Hamlin is now ninth in the Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series standings, but he and teammates Busch, Matt Kenseth and Daniel Suarez are winless through 16 races this season.
