The Sonoma Raceway Track Ambassador Program is an all-volunteer, service program that currently enrolls over 300 individuals who love helping others, take pride in service and typically enjoy the sport of auto racing.

Track Ambassadors volunteer their time at our three major racing events (NASCAR, NHRA and IndyCar) and a few of our smaller marquee events, like the Sonoma Historic Motorsports Festival, Ferrari Challenge and CSRG. They also assist with the Wednesday Night Drags and Sonoma Drift programs at the raceway and many of the off-track promotional events, including various shows around Northern California. Ambassadors can choose to work as many or as few days as their interest and schedule allows.

Ambassadors also play an essential role in supporting Speedway Children's Charities, the charitable arm of Sonoma Raceway, which raises money for Sonoma County youth organizations that serve our region’s youth and build stronger communities.

Sonoma Raceway Track Ambassadors receive:

  • A the Track Ambassador uniform (polo shirt, jacket and hat)
  • Worker credentials for each event worked
  • Two (or more) weekend tickets for friends or family
  • Free camping privileges for working two or more days during a major event weekend.

Plus, Ambassadors who work 10 days (or shifts) during the year also receive an invitation to the year-end Ambassador Party. This very popular event usually features:

  • Drag race competition, karting, and track time on our famous road course
  • A blow-out BINGO game with great prizes
  • A catered dinner served by raceway staff
  • Fabulous raffle prizes and other goodies
  • Awards ceremony including the naming of the Sam Posner Ambassador of the Year
