After only making left turns and topping out at 200 miles per hour, the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series will slow it down and make right runs this week.
Racers will tackle the first of two road courses this week with the running of the Toyota-Save Mart 350 at Sonoma Raceway in Sonoma, California.
Situated outside San Francisco in the beautiful California Wine Country, Sonoma Raceway features a road course that features 160 feet of elevation change and 12 turns.
Drivers will make 1,100 turns around the course during the race, which should make for some interesting racing.

There are also plenty of options if you are planning to RV camp during race week.
