    Taking a break from a customary oval track, NASCAR drivers on Sunday will navigate the 12-turn road course at Sonoma Raceway.

    The green starting flag for the Toyota/Save Mart 350 Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series race will drop at 12 p.m. Racers will then zoom around the course 110 times in hopes of crossing the finish line first after 218.9 miles.

    Points leader Kyle Larson, who won last week at Michigan, is on the pole for Sunday's race. Kyle Busch, a two-time winner at Sonoma, will start fourth. Martin Truex Jr., the 2013 victor, is in the third position just after Jamie McMurray.

    Larson won't have to worry about fending fend off last year's Toyota/Save Mart winner Tony Stewart. The three-time NASCAR Cup Series champion has retired from the NASCAR racing scene.
