They are the only two-time Sonoma winners in the field, evidence of their driving skills on such a physically demanding track.”It’s different, for sure,” Busch said this week. “There are a lot of guys out there who have the road racing background, who know a heck of a lot more about road racing and technique than we do. The neat thing about road racing is just being able to have — it’s like — a vacation weekend. You just go out there and have fun and do the best you can and you’ll either do really well or you’ll do really badly, and you just go on to the next one. We don’t have a lot of testing for it and you try to pick up on it but, with respect to who you’re racing, you can expect to race a little bit of a different crowd.”I think the biggest thing you do for Sonoma is watch some film, look at things from the past few years that have worked and some things that haven’t, and look at what has made you better there. You always have to be mindful of what has made you good there and what you can improve on.”MORE: Full 2019 NASCAR Cup Series schedule As for Joey Logano, the driver who stole the NASCAR Cup Series points lead from Busch last week with his win at Michigan, the Team Penske driver has never won at Sonoma. Logano does have two top-fives and four top-10 finishes in 10 starts at this road course, but his 18 laps led (over three races) at Sonoma is his third-lowest laps led mark of any track the series currently visits. The only other tracks at which he has led fewer laps are the other road courses, Watkins Glen (nine) and the Charlotte ROVAL (zero).Also among the favorites Sunday at Sonoma are Stweart-Haas Racing drivers Kevin Harvick and Clint Bowyer. Harvick, who won at Sonoma two years ago, has finished sixth or better in the last four consecutive races at this track. Even without a win so far this season, Harvick is only two points behind three-time race winner Brad Keselowski, who is third in the points standings.As for Bowyer, he boasts the best career average finish at Sonoma in the field (10.077), the third best mark all-time behind only Jeff Gordon (8.304) and the late Dale Earnhardt (8.583).
