Calendar of events
All fired up
It’s all about horsepower (8,000) and speed (330 m.p.h.) when the 26th NHRA Sonoma Nationals rev up this weekend, July 26-28 at Sonoma Raceway. The racing is headlined by the Top Fuel and Funny Car classes.
All eight track records were set last year and the big names — John Force, Antron Brown (pictured), Tony Schumacher – are back to push the limits. There will also be racing in the Pro Stock and Pro Stock Motorcycle classes. Action gets under way in Sonoma on Friday (7/26) with two rounds of pro qualifying at 4:15 p.m. and 6:15 p.m. Final qualifying takes place on Saturday (12:15 p.m. and 2:15 p.m.), with final eliminations set for Sunday at 11 a.m.
