For those who are asking, “What time is the NASCAR race today?” the answer is slightly different than usual.
The Toyota/Save Mart 350 at Sonoma Raceway will start a few minutes later than most of NASCAR’s mid-afternoon Cup Series races to account for the race taking place on the West Coast. Sonoma is about 30 miles north of San Francisco.
Below is all you need to know about the schedule for the NASCAR race at Sonoma, including the start time and TV channel.
