Motorcycle riders can enjoy a high-speed day on the twists and turns of Sonoma Raceway all in the name of charity at the 21st annual 3J's Motorcycle Days track day.

The 3J's Motorcycle Days charity event will take over the raceway on Wednesday, April 29, and will include a full track day of riding around the 12-turn road course, a catered lunch, T-shirt and an evening reception for all riders. It's truly the perfect day for any two-wheel enthusiast. Cost for the track day is $275 and includes six 20-minute on-track sessions throughout the day. All riding levels are welcome. All proceeds from the event benefit the Sonoma chapter of Speedway Children's Charities, the charitable arm of Sonoma Raceway dedicated to supporting Sonoma County youth groups.

The event will also include a raffle for great prizes, including a future 3J's Motorcycle Day, weekend passes to the FIA World Superbike Championship at Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca, a one-night stay at the luxurious MacArthur Place, restaurant gift certificates, motorcycle gear and much more. Raffle winners need not be present to win.

3J's Motorcycle Days events have raised more than $430,000 for worthy causes since 2003. For more information or to register for the April 29 event, visit www.3jsmotorcycledays.com or contact Jenah Smith at jsmith@racesonoma.com.
