Sonoma | Californian Kyle Larson adds to kudos at home track

Elk Grove Native Kyle Larson Comes Home to Race in Sonoma

Larson isn't allowed to race sprint cars during the weekend, only select events during the week that don't distract from his Chip Ganassi Racing ride in Cup.

Larson actually didn't think he had that good of a run going, but he was able to lead a Chip Ganassi Racing front-row sweep by taking his fourth career pole, and third this season, with a lap of 75.177 seconds (95.295 mph). "We know we need to put this vehicle in the winner's circle a few more times to move to the top spot in the standings, and that's really what we are trying to do". "I just didn't get it all the first time out - tried to save a little bit of tire for the final round".

"This is cool to get a pole on a road course at my home state", Larson said. I just under-drove it.

Several NASCAR teams, usually well out of contention for a title already, will use substitute drivers this weekend, hoping that a road-racing ringer will give them a shot in the arm.

After a successful test Friday during a televised practice session at Sonoma Raceway, FOX Sports announces it will feature a driver helmet visor camera in a live Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series race telecast for the first time in NASCAR's modern history during Sunday's race coverage from Sonoma. Larson has done more than just win a lot of races this season - he's changing the face of the sport itself. His average finish at Sonoma is 14.5 and his driver rating is 107.8, which is best in the field by a wide margin. Other short odds to win are Kyle Busch (11/2), while Jimmie Johnson, Kevin Harvick and Kurt Busch each have 15/2 odds.

"He messed up Turn 11 but he had enough of a cushion to overcome it", McMurray said of Larson's run. Track: Sonoma Raceway (road, 1.99 miles). "You might have a fast vehicle but there really is only two or three good passing zones on the track". He registered the fastest lap in the opening 25-minute round of qualifying, driving his backup auto.

For Patrick, her qualifying effort will be her best starting position this season. Chase Elliot qualified for the final group of 12 in a backup vehicle.

"From what I remember about this race a year ago, I ran, I don't know, fifth to seventh or eighth the whole time", Larson said. Virginia native Denny Hamlin starts 14th, while Tennessee's Trevor Bayne will roll off 25th.
