Fans can race NHRA drivers at Tour de Charity on Sonoma Raceway kart track

Drag-racing fans get their opportunity to go head-to-head against racers from the NHRA Mello Yello Drag Racing Series during the 12th annual NHRA Tour de Charity taking place Saturday, March 22, on Sonoma Raceway’s kart track.

The Tour de Charity is hosted by Speedway Children’s Charities, which is the charitable arm of Sonoma Raceway, and all the proceeds benefit Sonoma County youth groups.

Funny Car stars Ron Capps and Jack Beckman will be the featured NHRA competitors at this year’s event.

Beckman is the 2012 NHRA Funny Car champion, while Capps won the 2013 Sonoma Nationals.

Limited to 40 fans, the Tour de Charity cost is $325 and includes a full day of karting with the drivers, autographs, lunch, prizes given throughout the day, and the chance to compete in a 10-lap timed qualifying event for a grand prize, the NHRA Experience, which includes two tickets to the NHRA Sonoma Nationals. All karting levels are welcome.
