Welcome NASCAR race fans to my NASCAR blog. This week the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series to the Infineon Raceway in wine country of Sonoma, Ca. for the Toyota/Save Mart 350. Practice was this afternoon and qualifying is based on the first practice speeds. 22 Kurt Busch was the fastest and came out last, but will only start from 11th. SPEED showed practice today, but instead of showing us Coors Light Pole Qualifying at 5:00 ET, NASCAR race fans were treated to Barrett-Jackson auto auction. if we want to see all the drivers qualify, we will have to stay up quite late, as they will show us a tape of it at 11:00 tonight!
I couldn’t wait. 20 Joey Logano will start the race from the pole with a speed of 93.256 mph and 76.821 seconds. 1 Jamie McMurray will start the race from the front row in second. 38 Tony Ave was the lone driver who had to miss the race.
The NASCAR Nationwide Series is at Road America and will qualify and race on Saturday. I don’t know how much of it will be televised. (They think race fans would rather watch an auction than watch racing. And I can only report what I see.
