  • In Sonoma wine country, it was all about survival this Sunday. This 16e The round was indeed very competitive with a total of 7 neutralizations in 110 laps. This is more than in the last two editions combined.
  • There was trouble everywhere on the track, particularly in the middle of the peloton, like the completely failed braking of Josh Berry (Stewart-Haas Racing) at 11e corner, taking along William Byron (Hendrick Motorsports), Christopher Bell (Joe Gibbs Racing), Martin Truex Jr. (Joe Gibbs Racing) and Austin Dillon (Richard Childress Racing).

  • We therefore had to wait until the last third for the race to really settle down. Thus, it was a three-way battle between Martin Truex Jr., Chris Buescher (RFK Racing) and Kyle Larson (Hendrick Motorsports) which spiced up the final sprint. Always well placed behind his two preys who were pulling each other in front of him, Larson emerged to take them in quick succession in the same lap.

  • Freed of them and the path finally clear, the 2021 champion was able to go solo towards his first victory on a road since Watkins Glen in August 2022. A third success in 2024 which comes at the right time for the Californian as he obtained success of the case and an exemption from the NASCAR so as not to be excluded from the fight for the title a few days before. It was well worth a little glass of wine on the podium!
