For the third consecutive year, NASCAR fans can take a one-of-a-kind ride to the Toyota/Save Mart 350 NASCAR Sprint Cup Series event at Sonoma Raceway with the Raceway Fun Train.

The raceway will partner with Key Holidays to offer an express train that will transport fans directly from the Sacramento area to the raceway on race day, Sunday, June 28.  The train will depart from Sacramento, with stops in Davis and Suisun City, and traverse some of Northern California's most spectacular scenery before dropping passengers just steps from the raceway's main entrance.

Race fans should act fast, as this year's 650-seat train is expected to be a sellout. Last year's train was a huge success, and we are pleased to utilize the SMART-owned track to bring back the Raceway Fun Train.

"The train to NASCAR has been a resounding success in its first two years," said Steve Page, Sonoma Raceway president and general manager. "Our fans have told us it turned their race experience into a full day's adventure, and they can't wait to board the train again this June."

The Raceway Fun Train, formerly the NASCAR Express, offers fans a unique alternative to avoid highway traffic and parking hassles on race-day, and will feature café cars with on-board food and beverage service. The train is also a great option for small and large groups to enjoy the entire NASCAR race-day experience together.

"I loved riding the NASCAR train for the second year in a row," said Eric Ruud of Sparks, Nev. "I invited a bunch of my friends to join me and we had a blast. They were envious last year when the train passed them as they sat in traffic."
