|Sonoma Raceway, here we come
This weekend, June 21-23, brings the NASCAR Sprint Cup cars and stars, including Jamie McMurray’s No. 1 car, to Sonoma Raceway for the 25th annual race. One of only two road races on the schedule for the year, this will be the first time road racing the new Gen6 car introduced this year. Danica Patrick will also make her road racing debut in a Sprint Cup car after having driven open wheel cars here in the past. Qualifying for the race has also changed for the road races this year. Instead of the single car runs made last year, this race will use the times set on Friday to establish groups for the Saturday qualifying. The fastest drivers will battle it out to see who gets the pole for the 110 laps of the 1.99 mile track.
