The NASCAR Sprint Cup race schedule heads to Sonoma today for the Save Mart 350 which comes at a time when the standings are beginning to tighten up. Defending Chase for the Cup winner Kevin Harvick has been dominant thus far in the 2015 season, but second place driver Martin Truex Jr is now within just fifteen points and threatens to steal away the lead. Today’s race has an afternoon start time and airs on a surprising TV channel, along with a live stream online option.
Even as Harvick and Truex battle it out for the NASCAR Sprint Cup standings lead, three drivers are bunched up in a fight for third place. Joey Logano, Dale Earnhardt Jr and Jimmie Johnson are all within fourteen points of each other, creating a secondary level of season long competition. Today’s race comes just before the Fourth of July weekend, and in the eyes of some fans serves as a kickoff for the homestretch of the NASCAR season.
Today’s NASCAR Sprint Cup Save Mart 350 race at Sonoma has a start time schedule of 3pm eastern time, noon local pacific time, and airs on TV channel Fox Sports 1 (FS1). The race is also being made available as a live stream online.
