July 27th to the 29th will bring the touring professional drag racers to Sonoma Raceway. The four professional categories include Pro Stock Motorcycle, Pro Stock Car, Fuel Funny Car and Fuei Dragsters. Record runs have been made almost every year and this year should be no exception. Friday night qualifying in the fuel classes is spectacular with the header flames dancing high into the darkness. 2 qualifying runs on Friday, two runs on Saturday allow the fastest 16 cars to enter eliminations on Sunday.
After the races on Sunday there is an Eric Medlan Memorial ice cream social where free ice cream is handed out, donations to Speedway Childrens Charities is gratefully accepted.
