Vitalant is joining forces with Sonoma Raceway to put a non-traditional spin on blood drives by giving donors a chance to get their hearts pumping with a high-speed "hot lap" around the road course prior to donating blood. Donors will ride along with a professional driving instructor in a KTM X-BOW around the 12-turn road course.
For 29 years, Steve Page stood at the helm of Sonoma Raceway and steered it into one of the premier sports facilities in Northern California. But his legacy will extend far beyond the intersection of California State Routes 37 and 121.
Page retired Dec. 31, 2020, and a recent gift from Speedway Motorsports, Sonoma Raceway’s parent company, will further cement Page’s contributions to Sonoma County.
Speedway Motorsports has donated $100,000 to seven local charities in Page’s name. Organizations with missions ranging from the support of college assistance, mentorships, parks, senior assistance and more will benefit from this gift.
The 2022 date is one week later than this past June’s event and will be the second of six road-course events on the NASCAR Cup Series schedule. The Toyota/Save Mart 350 will be the 16th race on the 36-race schedule. The Toyota/Save Mart 350 will span 90 laps on the full 2.52-mile, 12-turn road course.
Steve Torrence kept his hopes alive to sweep the NHRA’s famed three-race Western Swing on Sunday, powering to the Top Fuel win at the 33rd annual NHRA Sonoma Nationals at Sonoma Raceway.
