In 2023, drivers and fans will again experience the excitement of the Chute at Sonoma Raceway during the NASCAR weekend, June 9-11. Brought back last year due to overwhelming demand after a two-year hiatus, this notoriously fast segment of track is sure to thrill fans and rev up drivers alike next summer.
When the green flag drops on the Toyota/Save Mart 350 next June, the 110-lap race will add to the fan experience with more opportunities for passing and on-track action. Drivers alike will attack the high-speed stretch of track that connects Turn 4 with Turn 7 and make on-track magic as they jockey for position.
For the first time ever, the NASCAR Xfinity Series will challenge the picturesque rolling hills of Sonoma Raceway at the DoorDash 250 on Saturday, June 10, 2023.
