As the summer stretch heats up, the Sprint Cup Series heads to Sonoma Raceway this weekend for the first of two road course events in 2016.

There are 41 cars entered for Sunday’s race, meaning one will go home following qualifying on Saturday.

Canadian road course ace Patrick Carpentier will compete in the No. 32 car fro Go FAS Racing. He last raced in the Sprint Cup Series in 2011, driving the No. 32 car at Kansas Speedway. He has two Sonoma starts with his best finish of 11th coming in 2009.

Cody Ware will make his Sprint Cup Series debut on Sunday with Premium Motorsports in the No. 55 car. The 20-year-old has 11 career XFINITY Series starts, including five this season. His best career series finish came in his debut at Mid-Ohio Sports Car Course in 2014 when he came home 15th.

BK Racing will field a third entry at Sonoma for Dylan Lupton who will make his Sprint Cup Series debut. He has ten career XFINITY Series starts, including two this season. He has one career top-10 finish that came at Mid-Ohio last year when he placed ninth.

I will really miss watching Boris Said this year, at Sonoma. I am glad to admit that I was a “Said-Head” and proud to be one. It was always great to see Boris running his #60 No Fear Ford. After he folded up his team and shop, it was fun to watch him drive the #32 for Frankie Stoddard, his former partner from the #60.

I lot of drivers honed their road course skills under Boris’s instruction in road racing.

He will be missed by all of the former, “Said Heads”.
