NHRA Sonoma Nationals Event at Sonoma Raceway Cancelled

SONOMA, Calif. - Sonoma Raceway and the National Hot Rod Association (NHRA) announced today the cancellation of the NHRA Sonoma Nationals Mello Yello Drag Racing Series race weekend at Sonoma Raceway, originally scheduled for July 24-26, 2020.

Since announcing the race postponement in early May, Sonoma Raceway and NHRA have worked closely to find an alternate date for the annual event, but with a limited number of options in the late fall, the raceway was not confident it could host a successful event.

"In working with NHRA's revised 2020 season schedule, the best option for the NHRA Sonoma Nationals would have been in November, and with the uncertainty of weather, which would affect the racing and camping experience, we are not confident we could provide an event up to the standard our fans have come to expect," said Steve Page, Sonoma Raceway president and general manager. "We are thankful for our passionate NHRA fans and can't wait to get back to racing in 2021."

This marks the first time the NHRA Nationals event in Sonoma has been cancelled or rescheduled since the series' inaugural visit in 1988. The NHRA Mello Yello Drag Racing Series will return to Sonoma Raceway in 2021. Sonoma Raceway continues to work with the NHRA regarding the NHRA Division 7 Drag Races, presented by Korbel, scheduled for July 15-19. An announcement around that event is forthcoming.

NHRA Sonoma Nationals ticket holders on file with Sonoma Raceway may choose to receive an event credit for the full amount paid plus an additional 20% or receive a full refund of their purchase price. The 120% credit can be applied toward admissions for the 2021 NHRA Nationals event in Sonoma.

Fans who have purchased tickets for the NHRA Sonoma Nationals should complete the exchange request form within 30 days at www.sonomaraceway.com/nhra-exchange to start the ticket exchange process.
