After a week off, we now head to California for the 2016 Toyota/Save Mart 350, a track that is very unique and can frustrate drivers at times. Even with the odd track, six drivers have won this race at least twice, with Jeff Gordon leading the way with five victories.
It should be a fun event with all the twists and turns.

Here are a few drivers to consider having on your card for the 2016 Toyota/Save Mart 350.
Joey Logano - Why not ride the hot hand after Joey Logano picked up his first victory in quite some time at the FireKeepers Casino 400. Logano has to be confident with the victory and the fact he’s finished ninth or better in his last three races. As for this course, Logano finished fifth in last years Toyota/Save Mart 350 and has finished no worse than 16th in his last five races at the Sonoma Raceway. We saw last year that Logano knows how to string wins together once he gets going. He has to be on your card this week.
Kurt Busch - Kurt Busch has been very consistent this season with nine straight top-10 finishes, which includes a recent victory at the Axalta "We Paint Winners" 400. Busch won this course back in 2011 and was runner-up in last years Toyota/Save Mart 350. In fact, Bush has finished fourth or better in four of his last five races at the Sonoma Raceway. Busch is as safe as a bet you can get the week.
Kyle Larson - Kyle Larson is still looking for his first Sprint Cup victory at just 23 years old, and he seems to getting closer and closer to victory lane. Larson was runner-up at the AAA 400 Drive for Autism and finished third FireKeepers Casino 400. Larson has been pretty consistent as of late and did have a solid 15th place finish last year in just is second try on the Sonoma Raceway. It seems like it’s only a matter of time before Larson wins a race. Why not this week?
Ryan Blaney - Speaking of consistency, Ryan Blaney has racked up top-10 finishes in four of his last six races and was in the middle of the pack for majority of the FireKeepers Casino 400. Blaney is clearly starting to find his rhythm in his first full season and is doing a lot more than just showing up as he’s currently 16th in the Drivers' Championship. It may be a bit much to ask him to win on his first appearance at the Sonoma Raceway, but there’s no doubt Blaney is in great form right now.
Jimmie Johnson - Jimmie Johnson won this race back in 2010 and has finished no worse than ninth in his last seven appearances at the Sonoma Raceway. Johnson has kinda fallen off a bit after such a hot start to the 2016 season, but there's no doubt it’s only a matter of time before he gets back on track. Johnson usually performs well in California and has a long history of owning this race track. Johnson is a strong play this week give his string of top-10 finishes.
