What time does the NASCAR race start today? Schedule, TV channel for Cup Series at Sonoma

Another one bites the dust.

Sonoma Raceway is one of the most unusual racetracks in the NASCAR Cup Series. The road course has an unusually jagged shape. Its asphalt surface is complemented by dirt-laden landscape that typically sends plumes of dust across the track.

Simply, Sonoma offers something most other tracks don’t. And that should make for riveting entertainment. The race conditions at the Toyota/Save Mart 350 make visibility a real concern for participants.

And that means one thing for viewers: expect the unexpected.
