Fantasy Preview: Sonoma 6/22

This weekend, the Sprint Cup Series heads out west to Sonoma Raceway for the Toyota/Save Mart 350!  Read on to see who I'm picking this weekend.

Tier A
Kasey Kahne
Kahne has been good in the past at Sonoma.  He's won a race here before, and he's the only Hendrick driver still looking for a victory this season.  I expect him to be strong this weekend.

Dale Earnhardt Jr.

Tier B
Marcos Ambrose
Is this really a surprise?  You would be stupid not to start Ambrose on a road course.  He grew up on road courses in Australia, and he is always a threat to win.  I wouldn't be surprised if he won his first race at Sonoma this weekend.

AJ Allmendinger
Allmendinger is another driver who is better on road courses, and this weekend he should be strong.  A win for this team would be incredible, and a berth in the Chase would be huge.

Martin Truex Jr.
Tony Stewart

Tier C
Danica Patrick
While Patrick was a better IndyCar driver on the ovals, she has way more practice on road courses than a lot of other Sprint Cup drivers.  A strong run this weekend would really help that team out, and behind the restrictor-plate tracks, a road course would be her best shot at getting into the Chase.
