Prime Sports NASCAR – weekly picks for Sonoma with a Gateway recap

Eric called the shot on last weeks show saying that Joey Logano was the one to watch since he’s won 2 of the last 3 inaugural events on ovals. He went 3-for-4 last Sunday in Gateway with an overtime triumph at the World Wide Technology Raceway.

That netted him $60 as well as Greg $108 as both head to Sonoma winners again.

Chevrolet has won just 3 times in the last 14 years at Sonoma. Ford is only 2-for-18. Toyota is the one to watch in winning 2 of the last 3. However, can they hold off the other 2 manufacturers?

Martin Truex Jr. is obviously the favorite but he’s only had just 2 top 5 finishes all season. Is he really ready to win? Chase Elliott is the road racing master but is 0-for-5 at Sonoma. Is he really ready to win in Sonoma?

This race could be another wide open event with strategy playing the biggest role here. You can pit and not lose a lap so most drivers punt on domination in favor for final stage track position. But, with 11 different winners already this season, does that change anyone’s approach?
