Alex Tagliani (#18 Epipen/Riobel/ComplexeJCP/Juste du Pin/Cantorque Chevrolet) finished third in Friday night's NASCAR Pinty's Series (NPS) CRS Express 300 at Autodrome Chaudiere in Vallee-Jonction, Quebec.
Kyle Busch finished seventh in the Toyota / Save Mart 350 at Sonoma Raceway to extend his current top-10 streak on road courses to three consecutive. Last year he swept the top two positions on twisty tracks.
Kurt Busch scored his 10th consecutive top-10 of 2016 at Sonoma Raceway in the Toyota / Save Mart 350, but just barely so. He finished the race 10th after starting fourth. That was the second straight race in which he finished 10th after also fairing that well at Michigan International Speedway.
Kasey Kahne finished ninth in the Toyota / Save Mart 350 at Sonoma Raceway, which was his fourth consecutive top-10 on this track.
Ryan Newman is a bulldog on every track type, but that is not always beneficial on road courses where finesse is a more desirable trait. Still, he finished eighth in the Toyota / Save Mart 350 at Sonoma Raceway, which is his seventh top-15 in his past eight races on this track type.
Kevin Harvick stumbled in qualification for the Toyota / Save Mart 350 at Sonoma and rolled off the grid deep in the field. He advanced to sixth at the end of the race from 25th, however, and added 19 place-differential points and three laps led to his fantasy total.
Chase Briscoe got the best of Dalton Sargeant on the final restart inside of 30 laps to go, then drove away to win the Herr’s Potato Chips 200 Sunday afternoon at Winchester Speedway.
After sweeping those positions in 2013, Martin Truex Jr. failed to finish in the top five in his last four road course races until this weekend. He finished fifth in the Toyota / Save Mart 350 at Sonoma to get back into championship form.
Carl Edwards dominated early in the Toyota / Save Mart 350 at Sonoma Raceway, but was caught in traffic with the wrong pit strategy at the end of the race. He rallied to finish fourth after leading the field to green and leading 24 laps in the opening stages.
Joey Logano finished third in the Toyota / Save Mart 350 at Sonoma Raceway to score his fourth consecutive top-six finish on road courses. This was his third straight top-five.
Denny Hamlin passed Tony Stewart on the final lap, but could not hang on through the final corner. He over drove Turn 11 and was passed by Tony Stewart within sight of the checkers, but he matched his career-best road course effort. Hamlin finished second at Watkins Glen International in 2007; he matched that with a second in the Toyota / Save Mart 350 at Sonoma Raceway.
Tony Stewart lost the lead to Denny Hamlin on the final lap of the Toyota / Save Mart 350 at Sonoma Raceway when he was out-braked on the back side of the track. He put pressure on the No. 11, caused Hamlin to overdrive into the turn 11, and nudge his Toyota out of the way for the victory.
