The Sonoma chapter of Speedway Children's Charities, operates as a 501 (c) (3) non-profit organization and has distributed more than $4.5 million to over 185 Sonoma County youth groups since 2001.

The Sonoma Chapter will host 12 events during the 2014 season including the Tour de Charity Karting Day, the Children's Champions Grand Marshall's Banquet, the Eric Medlen Nitro Night dinner, and the IndyCar Charity Auction where fans can bid on a once-in-a lifetime opportunity to take a pace lap with their favorite IndyCar Series driver.

Youth-oriented non-profit organizations in Sonoma are eligible for Speedway Children’s Charities annual grants. The 2014 grant application will be available mid-August.
