Day becomes first Israeli driver to race at NASCAR's top level

Day becomes first Israeli driver to race at NASCAR's top level

Jimmie Johnson led the final 11 laps to win Stage 2 of the NASCAR Cup Series event at Sonoma Raceway. Larson has not been consistently strong on road courses, but after winning Michigan International Speedway last week and two sprint vehicle races on Monday and Tuesday, plus another World of Outlaws Sprint auto race last week, it's impossible to discount the importance of momentum.

"It definitely hurt the tires to make an extra lap", Truex said.

"I was just going to try to make up a little bit everywhere". Truex was fast off the trailer and posted the quickest lap time in first practice. So, I was surprised and I was happy about that. "It messed my entry up, but I was able to just grab a handful of wheel, get pointed straight and get a good drive off". It's a fun place and our race cars are always fast. "We hope to qualify well and if you can save fuel it usually creates more opportunities towards the end of the race". Elliott showed no problems adapting to his backup vehicle, controlling the pace early in qualifying and setting himself up for a big weekend in the process. Martin Truex Jr. will start third and Kyle Busch fourth to round out the top 5. I feel more comfortable, I guess.

Also making noise during qualifying was Danica Patrick, who posted the sixth-fastest speed at 94.773 miles per hour.

"I think the hardest part of the road course is kind of containing your emotions because you are falling behind in so many corners because you can not pass", said Ryan Newman.

AJ Allmendinger was fifth, and Danica Patrick was sixth for her best qualifying run of the season. "The guys do a good job giving us something we can hit curbs with and be aggressive".

A week of talks will take place once a month, with the next due to start on July 17. Still, Johnson called on people to look at the more distant future.

"I think momentum is big in everything".

Elliott, who qualified a back-up auto, was fastest in the first round. Elliott said. "Hate that, but yeah, I guess it could have been worse, so we will go try again tomorrow".

Rodgers, a 22-year-old from Murrieta, California, won his first Coors Light Pole Award earlier in the day and brought his No. 7 Solvang Brewing Company Ford home in second place, his best finish of his 14 K&N Pro Series West starts. "Circumstances and track position and issues, you don't have to have the best vehicle to win here".

I could see today's victor coming from that pool. If you can spot those drivers who may have had a bad run in qualifying, and are a safe bet to move towards the front, then you are getting your money's worth. The previous record was 11th also help by Patrick in 2016 and 2014.

Matt Kenseth did not complete a lap in qualifying after the team changed an engine yesterday.
