The popular Wednesday Night Drags program will kick off its 29th consecutive year at Sonoma Raceway on March 15, 2017. The raceway will open its gates most every Wednesday night from March 15 - Nov. 8 for fans who would like to race down the world-famous quarter-mile drag strip.
The objective of the program is to give people, from teenagers to working professionals, a safe, legal and controlled environment in which to race their vehicles, as opposed to using city streets or back-county roads.
Most Wednesday nights through Nov. 8th. Gates open at 3:30 p.m., racing spans from 4 p.m.-10 p.m.
****April 12th Wednesday Night Drags has been cancelled due to weather.

The event attracts a varied crowd, including teenagers, mothers, working professionals and grandparents racing everything from Corvettes to Mini-Vans. Three-hundred cars are allowed to compete each Wednesday night. The weekly event attracts an average of 900-1, 200 people (competitors and spectators).
TOP THE COPSTM
High school students will drag race against Bay Area law enforcement officers when the popular Top the Cops™ program returns as part of Sonoma Raceway's weekly Wednesday Night Drags program, April 12.
The Top the Cops™ program, which enters its 23nd season this year, offers an alternative to illegal street racing and gives teens the chance to race against law enforcement officers, who compete in full uniform in their official vehicles on the quarter-mile drag strip. The program also provides a unique environment for the officers to talk with teens about safe driving and the rules of the road.
$25 competitors, $15 for students with their high school identification card, $10 spectators.
