  • Great time to be had for sure. Friday night is a kick with the cars shooting flames from their exhausts. It gets very hot during the days so be prepared plus traffic can be a pain on hwy 37.  more »

  • This is a great place for nascar fans for sure. I really enjoy coming here. A few miss directions in handicap parking but not bad. The traffic to get there is very long and terrible. Should make an over pass to go into over to race track only. Other than that its a great time. Took my daughter this year and she had a blast.
  • Great venue. Bring good shoes if you plan on exploring. Lots of steep hills. There's a shuttle on race days but you really only need it to go from the grandstands to turn 7.
  • The courtesy staff here is the best! They love what they do and it shows. And that to the thrill of the races and you get a great day out with friends or family.
  • I always have a great time when I go to this speedway. Great food, great people, and of course, the amazing drivers and their cars and pit crews. WOW! I loved it.
  • This racetrack has it all. Professional racing, amateur racing, go kart racing, driving schools, you can race your own car, and much more! Awesome facility.

Where to stay in Sonoma

Prices for accommodations in Sonoma are often high. The hotels on or near the town square offer an unbeatable location for experiencing the city's many cultural delights, but you'll pay extra for the convenience. Properties located farther out are more economical and quiet, and provide easy access to Sonoma's stunning countryside. If you are planning a longer holiday, consider booking a vacation rental that feels like a home away from home.
