Comedian/actor Adam Carolla will trade Hollywood for the Sonoma Valley, at least for one weekend, at the Sonoma Historic Motorsports Festival at Infineon Raceway, June 2-3.

Carolla is probably best known as co-host and co-creator of the hit television show, “The Man Show” from 1999-2004, but of late, he has burned up the airwaves with “The Adam Carolla Show,” judged by the Guinness Book of World Records as the most downloaded podcast on the planet.

Carolla also has another talent, driving a racecar, and it will be on display on the 12-turn, 2.52-mile road course at the Sonoma Historic Motorsports Festival behind the wheel of his 1971 Datsun 510. And this is no gimmick. Carolla recently took the checkers at the Toyota Pro/Celebrity Race at the Long Beach Grand Prix.

Race fans will not only see this Hollywood star, but the raceway is offering a special ticket package for Saturday, June 2, which includes a race-day ticket, plus access to a special Q&A with Carolla ( and an autograph for just $45.

“I’m looking forward to coming to Sonoma,” said Carolla, who will race at Infineon Raceway for the first time. “It’s going to be a great time. I’ve heard a lot of good things about the track.”

The weekend will feature more than 400 historic race cars overall competing in 15 racing groups, plus your race-day ticket will get you admission into the popular Wine Country Pavilion, where you will get a limited number of wine and food samplings. It will make for a perfect day – or weekend – in Wine Country. For ticket information, call 800-870-RACE (7223) or visit
