Sonoma Raceway hosted NASCAR’s 23rd consecutive visit to the Sonoma Valley. They offer a seven-race major event schedule, one of the most comprehensive in the country. It includes three of the top racing series in the US – the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series, NHRA Full Throttle Drag Racing Series and IZOD IndyCar® Series.
The Raceway is also a year-round motorsports complex with events scheduled 340 days and 50 weekends a year. They say more than one-half million fans pass through it’s gates each year.
