SONOMA, Calif. (AP) - It used to be that short tracks were the guaranteed place for the bumping, banging and blown tempers.
It's now shifted to road courses, specifically Sonoma, where more than a few drivers will likely be raging mad by the end of Sunday's race.
NASCAR's last two visits to the winding road course in Northern California wine country have been demolition derbies. Jeff Gordon was the bad guy in 2010, when he tangled on track with at least four drivers in a race he deemed a ``disaster.''
The lasting image from last year's stop at the 12-turn, 1.99-mile picturesque track was of Tony Stewart's car backed into and suspended high on a wall of tires, where he landed after Brian Vickers intentionally spun him as payback for earlier contact.
