We are gearing up for a busy season here in the wine country!
The Sonoma Chapter of Speedway Children's Charities has 11 events lined up for the 2010 race season. From the Grand Marshal's Banquet to a memorial ice cream social. We are gearing up for one of our busiest seasons yet. AND for the extreme race fans - an EXTRA BONUS . . .
The weekend of April 9th is sure to be something special. The Classic Sports Racing Group (CSRG), which donates all of their race weekend proceeds to the Sonoma Chapter of Speedway Children's Charities, will host their first of two race weekends at Infineon Raceway. The HISTORIC RACE CAR weekend will celebrate the 100th Anniversary of Alpha Romeo with a display featuring many of these one of a kind classics. CSRG has donated more than $425,000 to our chapter since 2002.
Our first charity event of the season will be the 8th Annual NHRA Tour de Charity Karting Event on Saturday, April 24th. NHRA drag racing fans will have the opportunity to battle on the Infineon Raceway 16-turn, three-quarter mile karting track against top NHRA drivers including well-known funny car driver Ron Capps.
**And as an EXTRA BONUS - The first 50 fans who register will have a reserved seat in the action packed day, which includes a full day of karting with the drivers, classroom instruction, autographs, lunch and the chance to compete in a 10-lap timed race for the grand prize. Contact me to sign up.
Next on the calendar will be the 3J's Motorcycle Track Day on Wednesday, May 12th.
- Bring your bike and enjoy a full track day on our road course!
- You will also receive an event T-shirt, catered lunch and enjoy a reception at the end of the day.
- Also included will be the chance to win some great raffle prizes.
