Kevin Harvick picks up his 36th career win at Sonoma Raceway, and his first of the season. The Toyota SafeMart 350, which consisted of 110 laps around the Sonoma road course, had Harvick completing the race in first, with Clint Bowyer 8 seconds behind. Section 1 of the race, which was 25 laps, was won by Martin Truex Jr. The second section of the race was won by Jimmie Johnson. The race also included 13 lead changes with 10 different leaders, and 6 cautions.
In victory lane after the race, Harvick said that the win was “worth the wait” after coming up short a few times this season. This was his first win of the season, his best placings before being third at the Food City 500 and also third at the more recent Go Bowling 400.
The next broadcast will be from Daytona International Speedway for the Coke Zero 400. NBC and NBCSN will carry the rest of the season, as FS1 and FOX wrapped up their coverage this week.
