As some of you who are into the computer, news, or racing world, the ten-year naming-rights contract between the management of what was Sears Point Raceway and the bigwigs at Infineon (tech company) has just ended as of today.  If you are unaware of this and are at all frightened for the sake of the raceway- don’t worry!  While the management of the raceway searches for a new company to have a naming-rights contract with them, or simply to be privately run by the staff, the raceway will simply be called “Sonoma Raceway.”  Hopefully by the end of the year, there will be a new major sponsoring company or the track will be privately run, and operate on the same schedule.  Only time (and money) will tell what will happen.

If you have any opinions, concerns, and anything else you would wish to ask or tell the staff, feel free to send them an email at namechange@racesonoma.com

By the way, they have a new website:  racesonoma.com

The phone number for the raceway is the same at 1-800-870-RACE (7223), and they have a new YouTube channel; Race Sonoma, a new Twitter page, @racesonoma, and a new FaceBook page at facebook.com/racesonoma.  You can still find them at their old FaceBook page as there is no specified date.

Here is the link to my post on Infineon:

P.S.  For those of you who felt left out about the American Graffiti Salute, you can enjoy the Peggy Sue’s All American Classic Car Cruise in Downtown Santa Rosa, CA on JUNE 9, from 6-9 PM!  See you there!

    1. Weinberg Raceway sounds nice, but I think that I’m going to need to start asking some people for a few (hundred) million dollars… Time to call in some superhackers…
