Sonoma Is Franchitti's Home Away From Home

Dario Franchitti has confidence heading into the GoPro Grand Prix of Sonoma.

The Scotsman is in the midst of a four-race stretch in which he's finished in the top four, including three podiums, and leaped from 12th to sixth in the championship standings heading into the Aug. 25 race at Sonoma Raceway.

"It's nice to show the results that we've deserved," Franchitti said. "Earlier this year, when we did have fast cars, we weren't getting the results. We've managed to turn it around a bit. Recently we've had the form to get that first win of the season. Sonoma is as good a place as any to try and get that done."

The 12-turn, 2.385-mile Sonoma road circuit historically is one of Franchitti's best. He won there in 2009 en route to the IZOD IndyCar Series title, has five podium finishes in seven starts and has never finished worse than eighth. But he stopped short of saying it's his best chance to win with five races left in the season.

"You do a lot of work to hope you can be in contention to challenge for a win," Franchitti said. "That's the thing with INDYCAR. With the way the series is, you can't go, 'I'm going to go out there and win.' You can't do that.

"You can put yourself in position to challenge for the win, but it's so competitive, you can't go out there and say you're going to win it. You can put yourself in a position to challenge, but that's as much of a prediction as you could make."
