TOYOTA SAVE MART 350

SONOMA RACEWAY

June 24th, 3:00PM Charlotte Time FS 1 TV

1.99 Miles 10 turns

Twice a year NASCAR makes a detour from the standard oval and gets its swerve on – on a road course. No more just turn left and go. Instead of going counter-clockwise like you would on an oval, road courses go clockwise and twist and turn the whole way. Here at Sonoma Raceway the drivers have 10 turns on an almost 2 mile course in a truly beautiful part of California. We can expect some new faces as road racing regulars from non-NASCAR series insert themselves into the fray. Most of these will be drivers who will replace cup drivers who don’t feel up to the road course challenge. Ten drivers starting this race have previously won a road course at the Monster Energy Cup level. Seven have of them have won here and six have won at Watkins Glen, the other road course. Kyle Busch has won at both two times each. Martin Truex and Kevin Harvick each have a win at both tracks. Stewart Haas Racing, Joe Gibbs Racing and the now defunct Michael Waltrip Racing have all won here twice in the last ten years. Toyota seems to have a road course advantage here with four wins in the last ten years, the most of any manufacturer. But Stewart Haas Fords have the last two wins here. Will Toyota keep the edge here in wine country? We’ll know on Sunday.

Tuesday, June 17,  look for our Top 10 drivers on road course tracks.
