Kevin Harvick stretched his fuel over the final 40 laps Sunday at Sonoma Raceway, scoring his first Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series win of the season.
Harvick led 24 of the 110 laps, with his Stewart-Haas Racing No. 4 Ford a solid 8.036 seconds in front at the finish. His first victory at the 1.99-mile road course was the 36th of his career in NASCAR’s premier series.
The Fraternal Order of The Go Fast
This week Jerry The Buschwacker was the only player to ride with Kevin Harvick at Sonoma. The Buschwacker logged 40 points this weekend in the heart of the wine country and and is inducted into the fraternity!
The Movers and Shakers
Even though The Buschwacker selected the race winner, he was not the highest scorer on this weeks road course. Lonna The Quilt Angel and Carlton The Doorman were actually the highest scorers of the week. Both The Doorman and The Quilt Angel were riding shotgun with “The Delivernator”, Denny Hamlin, and were rewarded with 46 points at the end of the day.
Both Edie The Las Vegas Super Star and Jim, aka Chiefy racked up 43 points from “Blazingly Bad” Brad Keselowski’s third place finish.
As was mentioned above, The Buschwacker picked the winner and logged the third highest score, 40 points.
There are eight players, Leon Your Most Humble Sheriff, Snoopy Dawn, Bobby Blue Crush, Jeremy The Coach, Skid-Marc, Bernie The Bay Ara Bandit, A&M Aggie Sue, as well as David The Mudslinging Throttle Jockey all added 32 points to their second segment totals via Ky Busch’s 5th place finish.
Linda The Cookie Mom and Doug The Ageless Sprint Car Racer each added 30 points to their totals this week.
Once again there was wide scale movement from within the fantasy league. The biggest movers this week are Carlton The Doorman, Jerry The Buschwacker and Karen The Highly Opinionated Southern Belle. The Doorman and The Buschwacker rocketed up five places this week landing in 5th and 6th, respectively. But The Highly Opinionated One plummeted five places to sit in 10th place this week.
Round out this list are Dan The Numbers Dude and Carole, aka Rudy slipped three spots after Sonoma, and reside in 9th and 18, respectively.
Straight From The Crapper
Karen The Highly Opinionated Southern Belle is awarded “The Crappiest Pick of The Week” for her eleven (11) points scored at Sonoma!
For the fourth straight week Jeremy The Coach is in solid control of “The Outhouse”! However his is closing the gap on his nearest competitor, Bernie The Bay Area Bandit, narrowing the gap to just this week!
Witht the advent of stage racing, the road races have become much more of a “thriller’ these days!
Next week it is back to Daytona for NASCAR.
