NASCAR’s popular Toyota/Save Mart 350 heading Infineon’s way for 23rd Valley stop
NASCAR’s Toyota/Save Mart 350 race will take place at Infineon Raceway on Sunday, June 26.
For the 23rd year, the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series is making its way west to Infineon Raceway, where it will hold its annual, and popular, Toyota/Save Mart 350 event-weekend on Friday through Sunday, June 24 to 26.
After a couple years of taking place on Father’s Day weekend, the Toyota/Save Mart 350 event – run on Infineon’s 10-turn, 1.99-mile road course – will be held a weekend later.
Following the NASCAR happening, the Infineon Raceway 2011 Big O Tires major events season continues with the NHRA Division 7 Drag Racing weekend of July 22 to 24; the FRAM Autolite NHRA Nationals from July 29 to 31; the Indy Grand Prix of Sonoma weekend of Aug. 26 to 28; and the Classic Sports Racing Group Charity Challenge on Oct. 1 and 2.
The most inclusive ticket package, the Track Pass, for Infineon’s 2011 major events is still available, costing $399 and including tickets to all major events, plus season-long VIP parking, a Pre-Race Pit and Track Pass for NASCAR, a garage pass for IndyCar, and more.
Infineon Raceway continues its popular Wednesday Night Drags every Wednesday through Nov. 16, with the weekly evening of motorsports including the “Top the Cops” program for high school students – designed to help take illegal racing off the streets and bring it to a safe, legal and controlled environment – and Drifting.
The Wednesday Night Drags are open to anyone with a driver’s license, and they can race any vehicle or motorcycle they bring to the track, provided it passes a simple tech inspection.
Gates open at 3:30 p.m. and racing spans from 5 to 10 p.m., with the cost being $25 for competitors – $15 for students with a high school ID – and $10 for spectators. Season-long passes are also available.
