SONOMA, Cali — The qualifying order for the Toyota Save Mart 350 at Sonoma Raceway has been set. This year, NASCAR changed qualifying at both road courses on the Sprint Cup schedule. The cars were assigned to groups based on their practice speeds from Friday. Slowest to fastest. Within those groups, cars will be separated fastest to slowest and released at intervals. Each group will have a window in which cars can complete their qualifying  each likely receiving three laps at full speed.
