Chase for the Cup

The 2007 Toyota/Save Mart 350 was the 16th race of the 2007 NASCAR NEXTEL Cup Series season. It took place on June 24, 2007, at Infineon Raceway in Sonoma, California, about 25 miles north of San Francisco.

It was the first of two Cup races on road courses and the first time that the Car of Tomorrow was used on a road course.

Jamie McMurray won the pole with a lap of 92.414 miles per hour (148.726 km/h). In addition to the NEXTEL Cup regulars, five Road course ringers also qualified: Boris Said, Ron Fellows, Marc Goossens, Butch Leitzinger, and P.J. Jones. Two others failed to make the field: Klaus Graf and Brian Simo.
