Sonoma Raceway
Description:
The raceway's popular program gives people a safe, legal, controlled environment in which to drag race their cars, away from city streets. Anyone with a driver's license can compete, providing their vehicle or motorcycle passes a simple technical inspection. All gas-propelled vehicles must have mufflers (if applicable). Almost any type of street-legal vehicle is eligible to run on the drag strip.

Gates open at 4:00 PM; racing runs from 4:30 PM-10 PM
If you plan on racing, you must be at the track by 7 PM. The earlier you get here, the more timed runs you'll get.
Racing may end earlier, depending on car count.

COST: $60 to race if you pre-register or purchase at the gate; $20 to race with High School ID. $20 for spectators at the gate.

WHERE: 29355 Arnold Dr., Sonoma, CA, 95476.

TOP THE COPS: High school students (with a valid student ID) can drag race against local law enforcement officers through our ever-popular Top The Cops program.
