AP Sports Writer

SONOMA, Calif. (AP) — Kyle Larson can’t be beaten lately in qualifying at Sonoma Raceway, and he hopes his recent superiority leads to a similar stretch of dominance in the race. Larson will start on the pole for the fifth straight race at his home track after edging Hendrick Motorsports teammate Chase Elliott on Saturday on the hilly road course in wine country. Larson turned a lap at 92.111 mph in his Chevrolet. The defending Cup Series champion even surprised himself this year with his surge to the front of the field on the difficult course that challenges drivers to quickly figure out its twists and quirks.
