NASCAR America: Sonoma is full of surprises with little time to prepare


Racing on the nearly two-mile road course at Sonoma Raceway is a completely different experience than at most other NASCAR Cup tracks.

Especially when you have to turn right nearly a dozen times in the race.

While it takes awhile to get accustomed to racing there, drivers don’t have the luxury of too much time or many practice laps. It’s also a track that brings out the best — and yes, even the worst — in some driver personalities.

Whoever gets a handle on the track first will typically have a better chance of being successful on race day, our NASCAR experts said Thursday on NASCAR America.
