As NASCAR returns to racing, Sonoma Raceway is giving race fans a chance to get cool prizes with its new "Winner's Circle" promotion.


The challenge is simple and the potential rewards are awesome: Sonoma Raceway fans that enter the Winner's Circle contest and choose a winner of the upcoming NASCAR Cup Series races will be eligible to win great prizes.


The first prize up for grabs for a lucky fan who enters and selects a winner of the May 17 race at Darlington is a Nexgrill. Packed with great features to grill everything from the simple to the sensational, a Nexgrill is the perfect companion for a fan's race day bar-b-que.


"NASCAR fans know how to tailgate and celebrate with family and friends at the races," said Jim White of Nexgrill. "In these challenging times we want to help a lucky fan bring their epic tailgate right into their backyard with Nexgrill as part of the Winner Circle promotion."


The Nexgrill is the first of several unique prizes that fans can win from each race during the Winner's Circle promotion. The promotion is free and runs through the following NASCAR Cup Series events:

May 17: Darlington Raceway

May 20: Darlington Raceway

May 24: Coca-Cola 600 at Charlotte Motor Speedway

May 31: Food City 500 at Bristol Motor Speedway

June 7: Folds of Honor QuikTrip 500 at Atlanta Motor Speedway

June 10: Blue-Emu Maximum Pain Relief 500 at Martinsville Speedway


Fans who enter the promotion and choose a winner are automatically entered to win that race's top prize.



Being eligible to win is easy - all fans need to do is follow Sonoma Raceway on platforms like Twitter, Instagram, and Facebook or download the Sonoma Raceway mobile app and watch for each race's Winner's Circle prize announcement and entry link. From there, picking the winning driver and a little luck is all that's needed.
