We’re riding along with Daytona 500 winner Denny Hamlin in the pace car this morning, so why not come along with us? Let’s take a quick lap of Sonoma Raceway, one of the few road courses on the NASCAR Sprint Cup calendar.

Sonoma is located smack-dab in California’s wine country, where hills and vineyards surround the track itself. The track has some neat elevation changes, and putting a bunch of drivers who run ovals for most of the year on it is always a blast.


So, what’s it like from in the car? We’re riding along in the Toyota Camry pace car to find out. It’s amazing how much cooler a simple Camry looks with a bunch of official looking stickers and a light bar.

Either way, join us on Facebook Live for a quick lap, and let us know if you have any questions for Hamlin, too.
