The Monster Energy Cup Series stops at the first road course of the season when the green flag drops at Sonoma Raceway on Sunday afternoon
NASCAR stops at the first road course of the season when the Monster Energy Cup Series holds the Toyota/Save Mart 350 from Sonoma Raceway. The Cup series returns from a week off to not only offer a different type of racing, but Sunday afternoon's festivities also will serve as the send-off for longtime FOX Sports analyst Darrell Waltrip.
As for the race, Kyle Larson is on the pole at Sonoma for the third straight race. He is joined up front by William Byron with Joey Logano and Chase Elliott lining up behind them. Jimmie Johnson, who is mired in a prolonged slump and looking at the distinct possibility that he will not make the playoff field, will start 11th at a track he has enjoyed quite a bit of success at.

The Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series emerges from a week off to start its summer stretch deep in the heart of wine country. 2.52-mile Sonoma Raceway sits within the beautiful backdrop of Napa Valley in northern California, an hour north of San Francisco. The winding road course offers its fair share of on-track storylines, a rare opportunity to produce an upset winner in a season dominated by a select few.
But it's also a picture-perfect place to offer a toast to one of NASCAR's most influential personalities: Darrell Waltrip. Waltrip will hang up the mic after this weekend, one final race from the FOX broadcast booth putting an exclamation point on a racing career that spans parts of five different decades.
