NASCAR Cup Series Returns to Sonoma Raceway in 2021


The Toyota/Save Mart 350 NASCAR Cup Series race will return to Sonoma Raceway on June 6, 2021, the series announced today as part of its full 2021 season schedule release.

NASCAR unveiled dramatic changes to its schedule for 2021, including the addition of three new tracks and six total road-course events. The Toyota/Save Mart 350 will be the 16th race on the 36-race schedule. The June 6 date moves the event slightly earlier than prior years, as the event has typically fallen on the third weekend in June. The Toyota/Save Mart 350 will span 90 laps on the full 2.52-mile, 12-turn road course.

The 2020 NASCAR race weekend at Sonoma Raceway was relocated due to COVID-19 restrictions, marking the first time the Northern California NASCAR event had been cancelled or delayed since its debut in 1989.

"NASCAR in Sonoma is the perfect way to kick off summer, and we look forward to bringing all the color and excitement back to Wine Country next June," said Sonoma Raceway President and General Manager Steve Page.

Sonoma Raceway is dedicated to hosting a safe event for attendees and its surrounding communities, and will work closely with local and state officials regarding safety guidelines.

Deposits for tickets and camping for the 2021 Toyota/Save Mart 350 are now being accepted. All 2020 Toyota/Save Mart 350 ticketholders will be contacted by Sonoma Raceway regarding 2021 tickets in the coming weeks. For more information, visit www.SonomaRaceway.com or call 800-870-RACE (7223).
