Wohoo! So he qualifies now for the playoffs at end of season. :thumbsup:

And it ended with a trademark cooldown lap dift car burnout. (Though he said he didnt have enough lock on the car to do a proper one!)
Dont think they have seen one like that before. Impressed the locals it seems. Also post race punted a football into the crowds. Plus post race short Interview.

Race and celebration Highlights




How our local press reported it:

Finally they start to learn how to pronounce his name. More respect for that than those who gave up at the first minute and changed Van Kalmthout into VeeKay.
Great race it was indeed. And also cool to see L.I.P.S. doing an interview at the end.

It looks like they've put up concrete barricades on the inside of the turn 11 hairpin at Sonoma ahead of the races this weekend. This can only go so well.

Stewart-Haas may be going away, but Gene Haas will still field one Cup car and two Xfinity cars next season. Cole Custer will have at least one of those rides, as his father Joe will handle day-to-day operations of the team: Also, Christopher Bell accidentally let it leak that Chase Briscoe will be replacing Truex in the 19 next year:
