NASCAR 2023 Sonoma schedule, entry list, and how to watch

Round 16 of the 2023 season takes the NASCAR Cup Series back to a road course with its return to Sonoma (Ca.) Raceway.

Kyle Busch won from pole position at WWT Raceway last weekend, matching William Byron for the most wins so far this season at three.

It was Busch's 63rd career victory. Ryan Blaney has taken control of the regular season points standings with another strong result at Gateway.

NASCAR has penalized Legacy Motor Club and the No. 43 team of Erik Jones for modifying the greenhouse of the Next Gen car, an L1-level penalty. Unfortunately, the bad news didn't end there for LMC. Noah Gragson, driver of the No. 42 Chevrolet, has been sidelined with concussion-like symptoms after at Gateway. Grant Enfinger will fill-in for him, making his NASCAR Cup Series debut at Sonoma.

The Garage 56 entry wasn't the only NASCAR news coming out of Le Mans this week. It was revealed that Le Mans winner and former F1 driver Kamui Kobayashi would make his Cup debut at the Indianapolis RC this year, becoming the first Japanese-born driver at the top level of the sport in over 20 years. He will drive the No. 67 23XI Racing Toyota Camry.

Sonoma Raceway is the site of Trackhouse Racing's last Cup Series victory, with Daniel Suarez taking the checkered flag there in 2022. He and teammate Ross Chastain have yet to reach Victory Lane this year, despite several strong runs.
