Sonoma Raceway is the perfect place for families to close out summer, as the Verizon IndyCar® Series returns for the GoPro Grand Prix of Sonoma, Aug. 22-24.

For the second year in a row, kids (12 and under) will be admitted FREE all weekend, with the purchase of any adult ticket. General admission tickets start at just $39, which means a family of four could enjoy a day at the races for less than $80. It's the perfect chance to enjoy the cars and stars of the Indy 500 as they tackle the twisting, 12-turn road course.

The main paddock will also feature a number of kid-friendly activities, including the Sonoma Raceway Kids Club booth featuring Burnin’ Bovine, the Kids Club mascot, a EuroBungy jump, Ferris wheel and FREE GoPro Grand Prix souvenir poster pickup at the Ticket Pit Stop. 

Families can also enjoy the incredible lineup of pre-race entertainment including a 25-minute Patriot Jet Team Air Show, GoPro Bomb Squad green flag delivery, vintage plane flyover, driver introductions and more. 

Fans can also enjoy some one-one-one time with IndyCar Series stars throughout the weekend. The INDYCAR Fan Village, located in the main paddock, will host a variety of fan activities, including a full-field Verizon IndyCar Series autograph session on Saturday at 11:15 a.m. Drivers from the Indy Lights, Pro Mazda and USF2000 series will also host separate autograph sessions. There’s even a special kids-only Q&A on Saturday. Check out for schedule updates.
