Race fans are invited to join a celebration of Sonoma Raceway's 50th anniversary with three NASCAR legends during the Toyota/Save Mart 350 at Sonoma Raceway on Sunday, June 23. Ernie Irvan, Richard Childress and Hershel McGriff will be the featured guests during the pre-race Legends Chat, which will serve as the centerpiece of the Pre-Race Show Powered by Friedman's Home Improvement before the green flag falls on the Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series main event in Sonoma.
Get to "The Point"
