Kyle Larson Wins pole for Toyota Savemart 350 at Sonoma Raceway

His lone win was at the Glen, but he can get around Sonoma too and it's hard not to feel that the road courses might be his only chances for a victory this season.

"THE BYRNSIE AWARD" to be presented during NASCAR RACEDAY from Sonoma - FOX Sports kicks off its Sunday lineup from Sonoma, its final Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series race of the 2017 season, with NASCAR RACEDAY at 1:30pm/et on FS1. "It's a good starting spot and we have a fast auto for tomorrow".

Kyle Larson qualifies in Sonoma. But if you don't push it 100 percent here you lose a lot of time.

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.

Marijuana Legalization Doesn't Negatively Impact Traffic Fatality Rates
The numbers vary by state, but in Washington, there's been a six percent increase compared to other western states. Based on this study, it's very hard to tell whether or not legalization has genuinely lead to more accidents.

"The whole lap actually felt pretty bad", he said. I don't feel like I gave up. Instant place differential value for a driver who I was probably going to fade at the start of the week due to his poor track history. "The first run in Turn 7 I messed up".

Fastest in practice and fastest in qualifying despite wheel-hopping into the hairpin Turn 11 at Sonoma Raceway. 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.

The sophomore driver said the biggest change since previous year is the experience he gained in his rookie season, both in qualifying and the races. By Lap 86, he pulled his vehicle to pit road and then behind the wall. Place differential will be important in finding our value this week but no driver in the last four races here has finished Top 5 after starting outside of the 20th starting position.

"We definitely have some really good momentum going for me in all different types of motorsports right now", Larson said. I think we could have been third but I don't know if we could have been first or second. "I think that is why you see like (AJ) Allmendinger run good here and those guys just because you can make up for your vehicle not handling right". "I got on the brakes deeper into 11 and just started wheel-hopping a little bit", Larson said. He's also the first Israeli driver to compete past year in both the Camping World Truck Series and Xfinity Series.

Hunters advised not to expect immediate grizzly bear hunting
For example, it's likely that they'll allow for limited trophy hunting for grizzly bears in those states starting sometime soon. The question that has plagued every conversation about Yellowstone grizzlies for well over a year was finally answered today.

Larson has never led a lap at Sonoma.

But with the quality of his cars this season, Larson's confidence level has risen.

A seven-time victor a year ago in the Truck Series, Byron broke through just a week after an agonizingly close defeat to Monster Energy Cup star Denny Hamlin at MI.

"Our in-car cameras are a great platform and are very telling about the sport, but a visor camera moves with the head movement of the driver and is as close to being behind the wheel as we've ever seen before". That, even more than the winding road, should make the Toyota/Save Mart 350 fascinating to watch.

62 dead in central Portugal wildfires; many killed in cars
Dry thunderstorms are frequent when falling water evaporates before reaching the ground because of high temperatures. Gomes says 54 people were also injured in the fire, 5 of them seriously, including four firefighters and a minor.
