Staff picks for today’s Cup race at Sonoma

Sonoma Raceway contains a multitude of shifts and corners that are sure to present challenges to drivers. The NASCAR America crew breaks down what sets this racetrack apart.

Here’s a look at who the NBC Sports staff is picking to win today’s Cup race at Sonoma Raceway.

Nate Ryan

Kyle Busch. With Jeff Gordon and Tony Stewart gone, Busch can lay claim to solidifying his claim as the greatest active road-course driver in NASCAR’s premier series. A win Sunday would be his fifth in Cup.

Dustin Long

Jamie McMurray. Chip Ganassi Racing collects another win after Kyle Larson’s victory last weekend at Michigan.

Daniel McFadin

Jamie McMurray upstages his teammate, Kyle Larson, for his first Cup win since 2013. Dark horse: Danica Patrick.

Jerry Bonkowski

Kyle Larson. The points leader is at his home track in front of family and friends, going for a second straight win and third of the season. He’s the hottest driver going -- and continues on Sunday.
