The NASCAR Sprint Cup Series heads west on this Sunday to the San Francisco area for the Toyota/Save Mart 350 at Sonoma, California.

Formerly known as Sears Point, Infineon Raceway is located just 35 miles from the Golden Gate Bridge and is surrounded by 100 wineries.

The elevation drops from 160 feet from Turn 4 on the track to Turn 10.

The asphalt track is 1.99-miles long.

The race is 219 miles which equals 110 laps. This is one of the smaller venues for a NASCAR event, with a crowd of only 47,000.

Jeff Gordon has won five times in 19 starts and leads the way as no other driver has won more than twice at the track in Cup events.

Infineon is a unique place. Almost 3,000 sheep call the place home. The raceway is home to a vineyard of Pinot noir vines. The vineyard, on a hillside near the track’s main office, opened in 2005. Since the 2006 race, the winning driver has sipped from the champion’s goblet in the Wine Country’s Winner’s Circle.

RECAPPING THE 2011 TOYOTA/SAVE MART 350 RACE: Kurt Busch’s first Sprint Cup victory on a road course came in a dominant way. He led the race in his Penske Dodge for 76 of the 110 laps. Gordon finished second ahead of Carl Edwards, Clint Bowyer and Marcos Ambrose.

Will Power won his second straight race at Infineon Raceway and then shared the podium with two of his teammates, who finished second and third.

Helio Castroneves and Ryan Briscoe completed a 1-2-3 sweep for Team Penske at the Indy Grand Prix of Sonoma, the first time that has happened for owner Roger Penske in nearly 20 years.

Power led 71 of the 75 laps while winning his second consecutive race from the pole at Sonoma, the same track where his career almost ended in 2009 after a terrible crash.

Power has a career-high five victories, one shy of the IndyCar single-season record.

Kurt Busch’s turnaround on the racetrack continued with a dominating run at Infineon Raceway, where he earned his first career road-course win and his first of the season.

Busch led a race-high 76 laps and beat Jeff Gordon by almost four seconds.

Busch has really come on since he became upset at his race team’s performance and the Penske Racing organization on his car radio at Richmond in early May.

Busch had been winless in 10 career starts at both Sonoma and Watkins Glen, the only two road courses on the Sprint Cup circuit.

Rounding out the top five, Jeff Gordon was second, Carl Edwards finished third, Clint Bowyer was fourth and Marcos Ambrose finished fifth.
