12. Sonoma Raceway – Sonoma, CA
This is the most unique racetrack on the NASCAR circuit. It’s a 12-turn, 1.99 mile road course that challenges the circuit’s best drivers. So much for the unlimited left turns of oval track racing. Sonoma has hills, hairpins, and right turns. What a revelation.
We haven’t even mentioned the best part of Sonoma Raceway yet. Go watch a few hours worth of racing, then wander off into Sonoma and sample wine in one of California’s premier wine making areas. Not a bad weekend.
