Hey folks! Here's my take on the Fontana weekend.
Saturday was the Xfinity race. Kevin Harvick won with 100 laps led, followed by Brendan Gaughan, polesitter Eric Jones with 4 laps led, Chase Elliott and Chris Buescher. Rounding out the top-10 were Brian Scott, Kyle Larson, Brad Keselowski with 1 lap led, Regan Smith with 4 laps led and Elliott Sadler. Rookie Darrell Wallace, Jr. led 3 laps and finished 12th. David Starr led 2 laps and was 15th. Denny Hamlin led 33 laps and finished 18th. Jeffrey Earnhardt led 3 laps and finished 28th. No one crashed out of this race.
Sunday was the Cup race. Brad Keselowski won with 1 lap led, followed by Kevin Harvick with 34 laps led, Kurt Busch with 65 laps led, Paul Menard and Ryan Newman. Rounding out the top-10 were Dale Earnhardt, Jr., Joey Logano, Martin Truex, Jr. with 5 laps led, Jimmie Johnson and Jeff Gordon with 3 laps led. Carl Edwards led 1 lap and finished 13th. Denny Hamlin led 56 laps and finished 28th. Matt Kenseth led 43 laps and finished 31st. Alex Bowman led 1 lap and finished 33rd. Everybody was running at the finish, but there was some wrecking. Trevor Bayne and Sam Hornish, Jr. wrecked while racing to be the first car 1 lap down, which is the Lucky Dog position. There was a green-white-checkered finish. They had to attempt this twice, but the 2nd time, it went through.
Stay tuned for Martinsville.
