Fontana weekend

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.
