Race fans looking for the ultimate NASCAR experience are invited to hit the track on June 10 for two exclusive opportunities during Toyota/Save Mart 350 weekend. All proceeds benefit Speedway Children’s Charities Sonoma, the philanthropic arm of Sonoma Raceway.
The charity event kicks off with the “drive” portion from 10 a.m. to noon, where attendees can drive their own vehicle for three laps through a lead-and-follow session across the start/finish line and through the 10-turn, 1.949-mile road course.
Those looking to “ride” can experience the ultimate adrenaline rush from noon to 1 p.m. with a “hot lap” around the track. Participants will feel the same speed and velocity as a NASCAR driver while riding as a passenger in an official Sonoma Raceway vehicle, piloted by a professional driver.
DoorDash, the local commerce platform, has been named title sponsor of the June 11th NASCAR Camping World Truck Series race at Sonoma Raceway.
The DoorDash 250 will serve as the 12th race on the Truck Series schedule and host the return of the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series to Northern California for the first time since 1998. This event will be part of a tripleheader weekend that includes the Toyota/Save Mart 350 NASCAR Cup Series race and General Tire 200 ARCA Menards Series West event. This will mark the first time DoorDash has sponsored a NASCAR premier series race since entering the sport in 2020.
Sonoma Raceway prepares for a NASCAR weekend unlike any other during this year's Toyota/Save Mart 350. The iconic road course set against the hills of California’s wine country will come to life with the rumbles of its fan-favorite drivers on each one of its corners.
To allow fans to enjoy the intensity of this challenging 10-turn circuit fully, the raceway has created several premium fan experiences that will elevate the NASCAR weekend in Sonoma, including several new dynamic features, both on and off the track.
Speedway Children’s Charities (SCC) Sonoma is now accepting grant applications from Sonoma County non-profit youth groups for its 2022 grant cycle.
SCC Sonoma, the philanthropic arm of Sonoma Raceway, offers this opportunity annually to local organizations that serve children and families in need. Since the program’s inception in 2001, SCC Sonoma has gifted more than $7 million to more than 50 organizations in Sonoma County.
Admirers and race fans alike can now symbolically adopt a sheep of their own, and help local children and families in need at the same time.
“Our sheep herd is one of the most unique and lovable assets at Sonoma Raceway, and now fans can symbolically adopt one of their own,” said Sonoma Raceway Executive Vice President and General Manager Jill Gregory. “By adopting a sheep, people can make a big impact for children facing hardships in the Sonoma County community. Just one adoption could provide a week of groceries for a family in need or two nights of shelter or even basic essentials for foster children.”
