NHRA Tour de Charity- Limited Seats Available



SOMONA, Calif. --

Drag racing fans can go head-to-head against racers from the NHRA Mello Yello Drag Racing Series on the Sonoma Raceway kart track at the 11th annual NHRA Tour de Charity.

Speedway Children's Charities, the charitable arm of Sonoma Raceway, will host the fundraising event on Saturday, March 23, with all proceeds benefiting Sonoma County youth groups. The event has raised nearly $110,000 since its inception in 2003.

Pro Stock Motorcycle stars Hector Arana Jr. and Adam Arana will be among the featured NHRA competitors at this year's event. The brothers, and teammates, are among the headliners in the highly-competitive two-wheeled class. Hector Jr. earned NHRA's rookie of the year award in 2011 and has three career victories, while his younger brother, Adam, will make his rookie racing debut this year. The Aranas will be joined by Funny Car driver and Oakdale native Josh Crawford.

"We're really excited to come out and race with the fans in Sonoma," said Hector Arana, Jr., who has a career-best elapsed time of 6.781 seconds on his Lucas Oil Buell. "We're usually racing there on two wheels, so it's going to be a blast to see what we can do on the kart track, and it's always great to help out the charity."

The event is limited to 40 fans; cost is $325 and includes a full day of karting with the drivers, autographs, lunch, and the chance to compete in a 10-lap timed qualifying event for a grand prize.

The Simraceway Performance Driving Center, which operates the karting center, will provide the karts, race suits, classroom instruction and on-track pointers for all competitors. There will be giveaways during the day, and the top 10 qualifiers (race fans) will compete in a 10-lap timed race at the end of day for the NHRA Experience. This package includes two tickets to the NHRA Sonoma Nationals (July 26-28).
