NASCAR drivers will enjoy a different kind of whine this weekend in Sonoma.

Call it Chateau Defeat.

As pressure amps up on Sunday and tempers flare, the blame game will be in full force as drivers compete for real estate throughout the 11 narrow turns of the 1.99-mile raceway.

Lately, the action at Sonoma has triggered more drama and driver payback than any short track on the Sprint Cup circuit.
