NHRA fans will get to hear, smell and feel the nitro-booming 22,000+ horsepower drag racing machines again in beautiful wine country next Summer as Sonoma Raceway will retain its July date in 2025. NHRA announced today their return to Sonoma July 25-27, 2025, marking the 37th year of this thunderous event at one of the most coveted locations on the schedule. 

Sonoma Raceway, known for its picturesque surroundings and high-octane action, will host the best in the business as top NHRA drivers compete for glory at the racetrack’s quarter-mile drag strip. This is more than just a race weekend - it’s a celebration of speed, horsepower, and the vibrant community of drag racing fans who have made this event a staple of the summer.  

“There’s nothing quite like the energy and excitement of NHRA drag racing against the backdrop of beautiful Sonoma,” said Sonoma Raceway Executive Vice President and General Manager Brian Flynn. “This event has become a cherished tradition, and we can’t wait to see what 2025 has in store for our fans and drivers.” 

Over the course of three adrenaline-fueled days, fans can look forward to experiencing the intense competition of the NHRA Mission Foods Drag Racing Series. From the thundering Top Fuel Dragsters and Funny Cars to the lightning-fast Pro Stock Cars and Pro Stock Motorcycles, every race promises edge-of-your-seat excitement. Plus, fans will have the chance to get up-close and personal with the drivers and their teams in the open pits, a hallmark of NHRA events, where every ticket purchased is considered a pit pass. 

In addition to the on-track action, the DENSO NHRA Sonoma Nationals offers a host of family-friendly activities, food and beverage options that highlight the best of wine country, as well as a wide-array of vendors and displays in the Fan Zone and Turn 10 Midway. It’s a race weekend full of fun and entertainment for fans of all ages.
