Photo- Getty Images NASCAR will be twisting and turning into beautiful wine country in Sonoma this weekend for some road racing which always happens to feature some road rage. Drivers get amped up for these races and they know that to win, you need to have a perfect day. Any driver can have that perfect race and last year’s winner, Clint Bowyer, is the perfect example. The Kansas Boy pulled off the win because he and his crew were flawless all race long. This year’s race will be another special one that you won’t want to miss. The Toyota/ Save Mart 350 is schedule for Sunday, June 23, 2013 and the green flag will wave around 3:19 PM EST (12:19 PM PT). Drivers will be beating and banging around the ten turn course for 218.9 miles and 110 laps. Sonoma’s weather is usually flawless, but this weekend there is a 30% chance of showers on Sunday with a high of 75 F. You can watch the race on TNT or take a listen to it on PRN. Clint Bowyer was victorious last time the Sprint Cup Series was at Sonoma after he held the lead on a late restart. Bowyer was not thought of as a road course racer before the victory, but now you don’t want to count him out. He’ll surprise you at just about everything so he could pull of two straight Sonoma victories this weekend. Michigan was a weekend to forget for Hendrick Motorsports, but they’ll look to rebound this weekend and they likely will with Jimmie Johnson and Jeff Gordon’s road racing talent. You can never count Johnson out of the mix anymore due to his great performances this season. The guys chasing him are hoping they won’t have to contend with him this weekend so they could make up some ground on the points leader. Road course ringers are scattered through the field this weekend and they’ll look to shake-up the Cup regulars’ party. The ringers in the field include Justin Marks, Alex Kennedy (Cup debut), Boris Said, Ron Fellows, Victor Gonzalez Jr. (Cup Debut), Jacques Villeneuve, Paulie Harrake (Cup Debut), and Tomy Drissi. Some of the best racing in NASCAR occurs on road courses. Sonoma never fails to disappoint with constant battles happening all over the track. In past years, this track has proven to be anyone’s game and not just road course specialists’. Clint Bowyer won here so anyone else can do the same. The usual players will be strong and the new faces entered this weekend will be around to shake-up the field. It’ll be wild, exciting, and interesting to see who can emerge victorious on the left and right turns of Sonoma.
