Raceway Celebrates Anniversary with Commemorative Wine Set
SONOMA, Calif. (July 15, 2008) - Infineon Raceway celebrates its 40th anniversary during the 2008 motor-racing season, and you can taste a little bit of the history.
The raceway will be selling a limited-edition wine set that commemorates the past 40 years of racing in the Sonoma Valley, with a portion of the proceeds benefiting Speedway Children's Charities, the charitable arm of Infineon Raceway.
Race fans will be able to order the wine at the upcoming FRAM Autolite NHRA Nationals, July 25-27, at the raceway's Ticket Pit Stop, located in the main paddock.
One of the bottles in the set features an historic drag-racing image from a 1970s event at then-Sears Point Raceway. Cost for the two-bottle set is $95 - you can also purchase by visiting: www.highway12winery.com/anniversaryrelease.
The wine chosen for this set is extremely special, featuring a Sonoma Valley Bordeaux blend from Generations of Sonoma's Highway 12 Estate Vineyards and Winery, in partnership with Serres Ranch owner, John Serres.
The set also features beautifully-designed commemorative labels, one boasting sports cars cresting legendary Turn 2during a 1970s event, while the other label highlights the dragster. Both bottles feature the distinctive Infineon Raceway 40th anniversary logo.
A limited number of cases will be produced for this commemorative two-bottle set - it is the perfect wine for this major milestone in the long history of Infineon Raceway.
