The series was unable to go to Sonoma last year because of the pandemic.
This is the third road course race of the season. Larson hit the tire barriers after moving into second place late at the Daytona road course and finished 30th. He placed second at Circuit of the Americas.
WHERE EVERYONE IS STARTING: Sonoma starting lineup
The Sonoma Cup starting lineup is set by using a formula based on four statistical categories: owner points position, owner final race position, and the finish and fastest lap from the most recently completed race.
Performance Metrics Qualifying is a formula based on the previous race. The formula is 15% of a fastest lap time position, 25% of the driver’s final race finish position, 25% of the owner’s final race position and 35% of the owner points position. Any ties will be broken by the rule book.
