NASCAR America: Sonoma is full of surprises with little time to prepare

It takes awhile to become accustomed to Sonoma Raceway, especially with few practice laps, which will reveal the personality of the drivers.

Racing on the nearly two-mile road course at Sonoma Raceway is a completely different experience than at most other NASCAR Cup tracks.

Especially when you have to turn right nearly a dozen times in the race.

While it takes awhile to get accustomed to racing there, drivers don’t have the luxury of too much time or many practice laps. It’s also a track that brings out the best -- and yes, even the worst -- in some driver personalities.

Whoever gets a handle on the track first will typically have a better chance of being successful on race day, our NASCAR experts said Thursday on NASCAR America.
