WHAT:
Infineon Raceway will open its gates for another year of its popular “Drags and Drift” program, featuring the best of amateur racing on its world-famous quarter-mile drag strip, as well as drifting behind the main grandstand. “Drags and Drift” will be featured most Wednesday nights from March 7- Nov. 14. Check www.infineonraceway.com/schedule/complete_schedule/ for details on the full schedule. 

STP WEDNESDAY NIGHT DRAGS:
This marks the 24th consecutive year for the popular STP Wednesday Night Drags. This program gives people a safe, legal and controlled environment in which to drag race their vehicles, as opposed to using city streets or back-county roads. Anyone with a driver’s license and a car that passes a simple technical inspection is invited to race on the world-famous Sonoma Valley drag strip — it’s the same racing surface used by the world’s fastest drag racers of the NHRA Full Throttle Drag Racing Series. 

SONOMA DRIFT, POWERED BY NOS:
Sonoma Drift, Powered by NOS enters its second year at Infineon Raceway and runs most Wednesday nights in the paddock behind the main grandstand. Drifting is a high-skill form of motor sport that requires drivers to control their car while it slides sideways at high speeds through a marked course. Drivers are judged on execution and style rather than who finishes the course fastest. Entries have included everything from Nissans to American-made muscle cars. All cars must pass a simple technical inspection before racers can compete.

The season begins on Wednesday, March 7.
STP Wednesday Night Drags — Practice runs at 4 p.m., with racing from 5-10 p.m.
