    Jusan Hamilton grew up working on cars in his grandfather's garage, and he has been in love with motorsports ever since. Hamilton hit a milestone Saturday when he debuted as a NASCAR race director for the Xfinity Series event at Fontana. ''I think this sport is open to everyone,'' Hamilton said.

    Kyle Larson hopes his NASCAR Xfinity race victory will catapult him to a weekend sweep at Fontana. Larson held off Joey Logano on the final lap to win another Xfinity race dominated by Cup drivers on Saturday. Larson thrived out of a late restart with smart moves and a clever lane choice on Fontana's five-wide asphalt.

    Ryan Blaney already had his Hollywood moment earlier in the week when he got a photo with actress Daisy Ridley at a Lakers game. ''She had no idea who I was,'' Blaney said with a grin. Hopefully the up-and-coming NASCAR driver is a bit smoother on the track at Fontana when he attempts to make another West Coast memory Sunday.

    When NASCAR decided not to fine Austin Dillon for running Cole Custer into a wall last week in Phoenix, other drivers were left wondering how the sport decides who gets fined and who gets away with rambunctious behavior. ''Give me my money back,'' Danica Patrick said Friday at Fontana. Patrick is among several drivers who have been fined for on-track shenanigans seemingly less egregious than the scrape between Dillon and Custer.

    ''I remember telling Tony that I would switch with him for a million dollars so he could do this instead of me,'' Earnhardt recalled Friday with a chuckle. Along with being NASCAR's most popular driver for most of his career, Junior has 26 victories, 252 top-10 finishes and two Daytona 500 trophies in his first 599 races. ''I just wanted to drive,'' the 42-year-old Earnhardt recalled.

    Sebastien Bourdais believed he could drive for tiny Dale Coyne Racing and really make a difference for a race team that has little chance against the big guns in IndyCar. Bourdais and Boisson teamed to win four races for KVSH. This squad showed Sunday it has the potential to be a major player this season in IndyCar.

    Will Power won the pole for IndyCar's season-opening race at St. Petersburg, proving he still is the best driver at navigating the temporary street circuit. It was a record seventh pole in eight years at St. Pete for Power, who also won the pole for this race last year. Power ran the course Saturday in his Team Penske Chevrolet with a lap of 1 minute, 1.0640 seconds (106.118 mph).

    The best season of Marco Andretti's career was 11 years ago when he was a raw, unproven rookie without a care in the world. Just three days away from his 30th birthday, Andretti wants to be that driver again. The way Andretti figures it, he stopped being that carefree kid and let the pressure of living up to expectations eat away at him.

    Roger Penske really couldn't ask for much more from his IndyCar team after a year in which his drivers went 1-2-3 in the standings and Simon Pagenaud earned his first series championship. ''You are fighting with your brothers, and you have to be friendly because you live together, and if you want to keep your job you have to be friendly,'' Pagenaud said in an interview with The Associated Press. ''But on the race track, you are fighting for wins, and Roger wants us to win.
