When it comes to road-course racing, extra laps are never a bad thing.

That’s why it’s common to see at least one full-time competitor in one of NASCAR’s national divisions join the ARCA Menards Series West when it visits Sonoma Raceway, one of NASCAR’s most difficult road courses.

This year, the number of national series competitors joining the West Series field at Sonoma is three. Noah Gragson, Brandon Jones and Sam Mayer are entered in Friday’s General Tire 200 (6:30 p.m. ET on FloRacing).
