Probably the biggest curve ball a NASCAR driver can get is adjusting to arguably the best road course on the schedule. Located outside of San Francisco in Sonoma, California, this is anything but the typical turning left track that fans and drivers are used to.
Infineon has sharp turns as well as hills that really put the emphasis on the car’s handling and braking. This is a race where high speed and aerodynamics are not the most important factors. A car that can handle well combined with a driver who can manage the brakes for this race will have a shot at one of the more challenging tracks on the circuit. Infineon gets just one race a year and it’s the Toyota/Savemart 350.
Due to the varying terrain fans cannot see the entire track. However, they can sit on the hillsides in California’s wine country and see some very exciting racing.
