Aric Almirola finished eighth in the Toyota/SaveMart 350k Sonoma Raceway, which is his first career top-10 on this track.

That is an indication of just how strong the Stewart-Haas Racing team is. All four of their drivers landed in the top 10 this week. Almirola continues to lag behind some, but is still a great fill-in pick on one's roster.

Erik Jones finished seventh in the Toyota/SaveMart 350k Sonoma Raceway after starting deep in the field in 20th.

Jones has improved in all three road course races and now has back-to-back top-10s on the track type. Jones had to battle back from early contact with Michael McDowell and use some pit strategy, but that is part of success on road courses.

Kurt Busch finished sixth in the Toyota/SaveMart 350k Sonoma Raceway to earn his 11th straight top-12 on a road course.

Busch is often unassuming on road courses, but his consistency suggests he should be run this August at Watkins Glen International and during the playoffs on the Charlotte Roval.
Jun 24 - 6:25 PM

Kyle Busch finished fifth in the Toyota/SaveMart 350k Sonoma Raceway to earn his seventh consecutive top-10 on a road course.

Busch seesawed through the race, but rose to the top one more time. The four multiple winners all finished inside the top five this week, so the battle for supremacy continues. It does not appear that anything is going to change between now and the playoffs so keep playing the odds and load your roster with marquee racers.

Chase Elliott finished fourth in the Toyota/SaveMart 350k Sonoma Raceway to score his first top-five finish on a road course.

Elliott's only other top-10 on this track type came on this track last year, but he still considers this one of his worst courses. Elliott's last two attempts at Watkins Glen International ended in 13th-place finishes, so don't commit to him too soon on that course.
Jun 24 - 6:16 PM

Clint Bowyer finished third in the Toyota/SaveMart 350k at Sonoma Raceway to earn his sixth top-five in the last eight races on this track.

Bowyer has been stellar on this twisty track in California, but before you start thinking about starting him at Watkins Glen International, consider that he has only a couple of strong runs on that course. Evaluate him there.
Jun 24 - 6:11 PM

Kevin Harvick finished second in the Toyota/SaveMart 350k at Sonoma Raceway after starting sixth.

That was Harvick's fourth consecutive finish of sixth or better on this track. Despite the pit stop strategy, he had a car capable of challenging for the win, but likely had a second-place car. Harvick keeps his momentum alive heading into Chicagoland Speedway.
Jun 24 - 6:04 PM

Martin Truex Jr. split the final segment in half and won the Toyota/SaveMart 350k by 11 seconds over Kevin Harvick.

Truex snookered Harvick and the rest of the field by calling for a pit stop that would have split the race into threes. Harvick was leading at the time and tried to time his stop to come on the same lap. With fresh tires, Truex ran Harvick down and passed him before Harvick pitted a second time. Road course races are won with good strategy calls.

Denny Hamlin won stage two of the Toyota/SaveMart 350k at Sonoma Raceway.

Hamlin inherited the top spot with the two dominators of the race, Martin Truex Jr. and Kevin Harvick pitted near the end of the segment in order to position themselves to win the overall race.
Jun 24 - 4:32 PM

Jamie McMurray hit his rev limiter and damaged his engine on lap 36 at Sonoma Raceway (11 into stage two) and damaged his engine. He was pushed to the garage.

McMurray was another dark horse contender to win the Toyota/SaveMart 350. His incident happened on the same lap as the blown engine on AJ Allmendinger.
Jun 24 - 4:11 PM

After apparently missing a shift, AJ Allmendinger blew his engine and will retire from the Toyota/SaveMart 350k at Sonoma Raceway.

Allmendinger has not had very good fortune at Sonoma, but if you rolled the dice on him as a dark horse, make sure to remove him from your NASCAR Fantasy Live roster.
Jun 24 - 4:06 PM

AJ Allmendinger won the first stage of the Toyota/SaveMart 350 k at Sonoma Raceway.

Allmendinger was running third when the leaders Martin Truex Jr. and Kevin Harvick pitted - handing the stage win to him. About half of the lead lap drivers pitted under green - opting to give up stage points for a chance at winning the race. Allmendinger will now be mire in traffic, but should cycle to the lead at the end of stage two.
Jun 24 - 3:51 PM

Kevin Harvick climbed from sixth to second with five laps remaining in stage one at Sonoma Raceway in the Toyota 350k.

It doesn't matter what track or type of course NASCAR runs, Harvick is going to be hard to beat.
Jun 24 - 3:44 PM

Martin Truex Jr. took the lead from Kyle Larson on lap three of the SaveMart 350 at Sonoma Raceway and led 10 of the first 12 laps - and counting.

Truex was deemed one of the favorites by crew chiefs and other drivers. He won in 2013 and could be repeat. If he is in your NASCAR Fantasy Live garage, activate him.
Jun 24 - 3:34 PM

Erik Jones sustained damage in the opening laps of the SaveMart 350k at Sonoma Raceway while racing Michael McDowell for 22nd.

Jones damage is significant, but should not impact his handling very much since it is on the passenger side door. Hang onto him if he is on your roster.
