Sonoma: Cup results

Martin Truex Jr. won from the front in the Toyota/Save Mart 350 NASCAR Sprint Cup race at Sonoma, on what proved to be an unseasonably showery Sunday in the golden state.
Martin Truex Jr. won the Toyota/Save Mart 350 after leading almost half of the 110 laps of the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series race on Sunday afternoon at the Sonoma Raceway in Sears Point, California.

It's Truex's second Cup win, his first coming back in June 2007 at Dover which makes Sonoma mark the end of a 218-race run without a race win - the second longest in Cup series history dating back to Bill Elliott's record of 226.

Finishing eight seconds clear of Jeff Gordon on the 2-mile, 12-turn asphalt circuit gave Truex his first win at Sonoma in eight starts and is only the second time that he's even finished the road race in the top ten. His victory makes it the ninth consecutive different Cup race winner at Somoma.

Jimmie Johnson finished in ninth place and continues to leads the Sprint Cup point standings, now by 25 points over Carl Edwards who finished in third place on Sunday.
