Located about 30 miles north of San Francisco, Sonoma Raceway opened as a 2.52-mile road course and drag strip in 1968. The first NASCAR Cup Series race at this track was held on June 11, 1989 - won by Ricky Rudd. The first nine races there were 300 kilometers but the distance switched to 350 km in 1998.
Sonoma was reconfigured to 1.949 miles in '98, with the installation of an 890-foot chute between the original turns 4 and 7. The track was reconfigured again in 2001 to 2.0 miles and then remeasured at 1.99 miles in 2002.
This track was formerly called Sears Point Raceway (1981-2001) and Infineon Raceway (2002-12).
There have been 25 Cup races held at Sonoma -- one each year since 1989.
Jeff Gordon, Bobby Labonte, Terry Labonte and Mark Martin share the record for most starts at Sonoma with 21 each. Gordon is the only one of the four who is competing in this weekend's race there.
Gordon leads all drivers with most wins (5), poles (5), top-5 finishes (13) and top-10s (17) at Sonoma. He's also the only driver with consecutive victories at this track -- winning three in a row from 1998-2000.
Rick Hendrick has the most car owner wins at Sonoma with six. A driver from Hendrick Motorsports has won the last five Sprint Cup points-paying races -- Michigan (June 15).
The race winner at Sonoma has started from the pole five times, which is more than any other starting position there. However, a race at this track has not been won from the pole since Gordon did it in 2004.
Since NASCAR began using electronic timing and scoring in 1993, the closest margin of victory in a Cup race at Sonoma occurred on June 27, 1999 when Gordon beat Martin to the finish line by 0.197 seconds.
The furthest back a driver has started and won a Cup race at Sonoma is 32nd, accomplished by Juan Pablo Montoya in 2007. Montoya is the only driver who won his first race in the series at this track. He is now a full-time competitor in the IndyCar Series.
Boris Said (2003) is the only driver on the entry list that scored his maiden pole in the series at this track. Said, a road-course expert, is scheduled to drive the No. 32 Ford for Go FAS Racing this weekend.
Two drivers entered in this race made their Cup debuts at Sonoma: David Gilliland (2006) and Marcos Ambrose (2008).
Kyle Busch holds the record as the youngest driver to win a race at Sonoma. Busch took the checkered flag there on June 22, 2008 when he was 23 years, 1 month and 20 days old. When Ricky Rudd was 45 years, 9 months and 11 days old, he became the oldest driver to win at this track on June 23, 2002.
The next race is the June 28 Quaker State 400 at Kentucky Speedway. Matt Kenseth won last year's event there.
