NASCAR At Sonoma 2012: TV Schedule, Starting Lineup & More

If you've heard the knock on NASCAR racing being that it's just a bunch of left turns, you might want to tune in on Sunday for the Toyota/Save Mart 350 at Sonoma. The 110-lap race features 12 turns in each 1.95-mile lap. It's a unique course and should make for a unique race.

New overall points leader Matt Kenseth will try to hold the field at bay and has a good starting position to attempt to do so.
