Hendrick gang streaks into Sonoma

"The restarts are completely insane," Bowyer said. "Everything has to go right. Everybody sees that on these road courses, but you really do have the reins, you have to make the right decisions out there, and if you've got a car capable of winning, by all means put it in position to win. If you don't, you go out there and overcharge corners, wheel-hop and make a dumb mistake that takes your team out of contention for a good finish."

Joey Logano, a two-time winner this season for Team Penske, summed up the collective mindset after an afternoon of beating and banging on this challenging road course: "Usually there about four or five guys that are smiling after the race and everyone else is really mad at each other, so I can't wait [laughing]."

Who'll be laughing Sunday?
