SONOMA, Calif. (AP) — The Latest on the NASCAR Cup Series race in Sonoma (all times local):
Hamlin earned his second stage victory of the season. He has won at Daytona and Texas this season, but has never won a Cup Series race at Sonoma.
Truex is the defending champion on the road course’s rolling hills, and he led most of the second stage before sticking to his pit strategy.
During the caution-free second stage, Clint Bowyer had to make an unscheduled pit stop with a loose wheel. Aric Almirola lost position when he skidded off the track. Paul Menard spun in the hairpin turn, but managed to keep going.
