The 2022 Toyota/Save Mart 350 will bring the NASCAR Cup Series to Sonoma Raceway in Sonoma, Calif. on Sunday. The race at Sonoma Raceway on Sunday will be 110 laps and 350 kilometres long. The course has been redesigned to include the popular “Chute,” which transforms Turn 7 into a high-speed corner that has seen plenty of passes and incidents in the past. The race length remains the same with the Carousel gone and the Chute reinstated, but there are now 110 laps instead of 90 in 2021. Back in 2018, Martin Truex Jr. was the last driver to win with the Chute setup.

Last season, Larson took the checkered flag in the Carousel layout, ending Truex’s two-race winning streak at Sears Point. Ford hasn’t won at Sonoma since Kevin Harvick took the checkered flag in July 2017. The team has only won two races at the track in the last 18 years. In June 2018, Truex clocked an average speed of 82.882 mph on the most recent track configuration, which included The Chute and the high-speed Turn 7. Erik Jones leads all active drivers with a 12.8 Average-Finish-Position (AFP) in four Sonoma appearances, including two top-10 results.
