SONOMA, Calif – When Tony Kanaan straps into his No. 14 Chevrolet for AJ Foyt Racing on Sunday afternoon at the Sonoma Raceway, it will be the 300th consecutive race day that he’s done so.

Tony Kanaan hasn’t visited victory lane in nearly four years now. But, if he’s going to end his winless drought this season, Sunday’s ABC Supply 500 (1:30 p.m. ET/NBCSN/INDYCAR Radio Network) would be the place that it happens.
