Take the experienced driver in NASCAR showdown in Sonoma

The NASCAR series will wind its way through the heart of wine country, as the world’s best racers will negotiate the very challenging Sonoma Raceway. This annual stop at Sonoma will be a bit different this year due to the track configuration.

Not since 1997 have the competitors raced the carousel portion of the track during a NASCAR cup event. This retro configuration will add another passing zone, and it will also add a higher degree of difficulty, which is likely be the source of more than one dust-up.

Almirola has shown good speed all weekend in addition to car control that has been equally strong. Further, he is at the point in his career when we often see a NASCAR driver become a solid road-course racer.

Daniel Hemric, though experienced, is one of the rookies of the series. It would take a monumental task for him to finish in the top eight. Our record this season in driver head-to-head matchup wagers is 28-13.

The play: Aric Almirola (-110) over Daniel Hemric (-110)
