Sonoma cautions/Lucky dogs: the rule?

Now that the race is over, can somebody who KNOWS explain how the
caution/freepass rule works(ed) at Sonoma? I confidently told another viewer
there was no "lucky Dog" pass in this road race, and yet the race was loaded
with them! I noted that a "solitary spin" didn't bring out a caution, but a
single piece of debris seemingly a half-mile away from traffic brought a
yellow flag and a free pass. I'm not quibbling about who benefited, I just
wonder what was going on there? Appreciate any help.

Not really...
Mikey's spin brought a caution.
So did Jr's.
So did JJ's

Sorry, but this is a No Hendrick Spin Zone. NASCAR has their head up
their ass when it comes to the yellow flag.

Isn't it also funny that both of these incidents involved Hendrick
cars? Gordo had one of those mystery debris cautions. JJ spins and gets
his caution, yet other drivers spin and get no caution.
