Sonoma Sunday should be exciting just like the XFINITY race was on Saturday night. The drivers will go 110 laps on the 12-turn road course and with qualifying set we know where to look for drivers.
Most comparable tracks: Watkins Glen International, Mid-Ohio Sports Car Course, Circuit of the Americas

Kyle Larson ($10,600), Starting 16th
Larson had a great day yesterday from the pole leading over 50 of the possible 70+ laps en route to a third-place finish. Larson loves racing at Sonoma, it’s one of his best tracks as far as road courses go. This is the deepest in the field that he’s started in a Cup car here but that won’t stop me from locking him in with his potential upside as far as getting a win and racking up some place differential.
A.J. Allmendinger ($9,300), Starting 5th
Just like yesterday, Allmendinger will start fifth but in a Cup car. While Allmendinger hasn’t had the most success at Sonoma, he’s still one of the better road course racers out there and could find himself to the fornt early.
Tyler Reddick ($10,400), Starting 2nd
I expect Reddick to get past Denny Hamlin (pole) early and lead a good chunk of the laps in stage one. Reddick has proven to be one of the best road course racers recently with three wins on road courses in the last seven Cup races on such tracks. Overall in 16 career cup races on road courses Reddick has three wins, five top-fives, 10 top-10’s, and an average finish of 12th.
Others to Look At:
Austin Cindric ($9,100), Starting 34th
- While it’s been a tough year for Cindric, he’s a very good road course racer and should be very popular with his potential place differential. Cindric started 25th in this race last year and finished fifth and in his XFINITY career Cindric ran 20 road courses posting five wins, 14 top-fives, and an average finishing position of 6th.
Ryan Blaney ($8,400), Starting 31st
- Much like Cindric, Blaney should be a popular option in this price point based on his place differential upside. Blaney has run six times at Sonoma in his Cup career and has one top-five and four top-10’s. Blaney finished sixth in this race last year.
Chase Briscoe ($7,000), Starting 24th
- Briscoe, another very good road course races at the XFINITY level and in two races at Sonoma at the Cup level has posted a 17th and 13th place finish. Looking at where he’s starting (24th), Briscoe has four top-10’s in14 road course races at the Cup level with an average finish of 17th. There’s some upside here and potentially lower ownership.
William Byron ($9,900), Starting 26th
Kevin Harvick ($8,100), Starting 21st
Brad Keselowski ($7,700), Starting 25th
Harrison Burton ($5,500), Starting 36th
