Toyota/Save Mart 350 Free Pick
SONOMA, CA (ATS Consultants) - The NASCAR Sprint Cup moves to Sonoma, Calif. for the Toyota/Save Mart 350 from Sonoma Raceway on Sunday.
This is the 16th race on the 2013 Sprint Cup schedule. Sonoma Raceway is a road-course that's located about 30 miles north of San Francisco. Clint Boyer won the race last year though Jeff Gordon leads all drivers with most wins (5), poles (5), top-five finishes (12) and top-10s (16) at Sonoma. According to oddsmakers from online sports book Bovada.lv, Marcos Ambrose is the favorite despite never winning on this track.
Smoke is a great driver on the road-course. Last year, he was the runner-up to Boyer. He also has two wins at Sonoma with five top-five finishes and nine top-10 finishes in his 14 career stars at Sonoma.
He started off his career with four straight top-10 finishes at Sonoma. He started out 32nd in 2007 and won that season. He's capable of winning again with Earnhardt Ganassi Racing running well.
Live Long Shot:
Logano won the pole for this race in 2011. He finished the last two races at Sonoma in the top 10.
