Larson and McMurray make it 1-2 for Chip Ganassi at Sonoma

Pick to Win

His driver rating at this track is 90.2, which is among the best in the field. Alternatively, some drivers are worse. In fact the Chevy qualifying order looks a lot different than normal, with the likes of A.J. Allmendinger (5th), Chris Buescher (9th) and Paul Menard (15th) all starting higher than we've been accustomed to seeing them. Positive position differential points are king at a track where the number of laps are fewer.

Does Kyle Larson have road course racing figured out?

Ryan Blaney was seventh and followed by Chase Elliott, who is in a backup vehicle following a Friday wreck.

This week's fantasy forecast is backed by DraftKings, the No. 1 platform for daily fantasy sports. That, even more than the winding road, should make the Toyota/Save Mart 350 fascinating to watch.

The Bakersfield native led the most laps of the event. It was a fairly uneventful race with very cautions, other than for the stages, and that led to wide-open throttles and everyone chasing the best auto on the track. Yet it looks like business as usual so far when you consider that Cup Series points leader Kyle Larson, fresh off his second victory of 2017 at MI, sits on the pole. During that win he led 51 of the 110 laps.

Fair warning to the field: Both times Larson has qualified first this season, he has won the race.

Larson was able overcome the mistake by getting his No. 42 Energizer Chevrolet back on course and relying on other areas of the track in which he shaved time off. He has a great handle for this track and should find himself battling at the front again.

Jones, competing in only the sixth road course race of his NASCAR national series career and first ever at Sonoma Raceway, posted the 30th-quickest lap of the first session of 76.647 at 93.467. As a result of losing his engine during practice, Kenseth will be starting dead last on Sunday in a backup vehicle. I'm always pretty confident when I go to here or Watkins Glen. Yet, because of how DraftKings scoring works for NASCAR, a last place starting position has competitors drooling over the potential of those coveted positive position differential points.

Rodgers, a 22-year-old from Murrieta, California, won his first Coors Light Pole Award earlier in the day and brought his No. 7 Solvang Brewing Company Ford home in second place, his best finish of his 14 K&N Pro Series West starts. In 17 starts, his best finish is eighth, and that was back in 2008. Didn't get the finish that we deserved previous year, but always run up front.
