A passenger train winds into view at Sonoma Raceway on Sunday, riding rails that in some stretches hadn’t carried a passenger train in nearly 50 years.

While NASACR drivers were gearing up for Sunday’s Toyota/Save Mart 350 [2] (won by Martin Truex Jr.), the special train, and its 500 passengers, was making its way from Sacramento, with stops in Davis and Suisun.
