On October 10, 2017, Sonoma Raceway offered the following statement: 

Sonoma Raceway - #SonomaStrong #NASCARAll of us at Sonoma Raceway extend our heartfelt thoughts and prayers to those who have been touched by the devastating North Bay fires. Our facilities team and a number of local fire companies have been battling grassland fires on Cougar Mountain and elsewhere around our property, and at this point it does not appear any of the raceway's structures or other facilities are at immediate risk. We appreciate all of the good wishes that have flooded in from friends around the country.

Three days later the following was announced:

Like many local sites that have been housing evacuees from the North Bay fires, Sonoma Raceway has been overwhelmed with generous donations from community members.

We now have more donated items than we have the capacity to use or distribute, and are no longer accepting material donations at the raceway.

In lieu of donating new or used items, we suggest you consider a financial contribution to one of these local non-profits doing incredible work in local communities:

NASCAR Race Mom recently learned that the Sonoma Raceway also opened its 50-acre campground to evacuees seeking temporary refuge from the Northern California fires. The campground is located directly across from the raceway on Highway 121 and has not been affected by the fires.

Those in need of RV camping at Sonoma Raceway should enter the campground at Gate 6 on Highway 121, a quarter-mile north of Highway 37. The raceway will team up with United Site Services to offer basic RV services, including water/sewage service, to campers during their stay. The campground is dry with no hookups.

For more information, visit the Sonoma Raceway main office or front gate at 29355 Arnold Drive in Sonoma or call 800-870-7223 or email

This is just another example of how the racing family give back to the community.
