You can take a train to Sonoma Raceway? News to me.

Reminds me of the time I drove a car to a train race. Good times.

Not That You’d Notice, But NASCAR is in the Bay Area this Weekend up at the Infineon

Thursday, June 17th, 2010

NASCAR, the second-biggest car racing series in the world, is fixing to liven up bucolic Sonoma on Father’s Day.

“Celebrate Father’s Day in the Wine County at the Toyota/Save Mart 350 NASCAR Sprint Cup Series weekend, June 18-20. Why give dad a necktie when you can give him the gift of Jeff Gordon, Dale Earnhardt Jr. and Tony Stewart swapping paint on the twisting road course.”

These NASCAR posters on sale for the giveaway price of $.25 aren’t exactly blowing out the doors of our Lucky Stores. (Pepsi must think that San Francisco is just another town on the NASCAR circuit.)

Imagine NASCAR as Pixar’s Cars movie come to life – that’s the best way to describe it.

Anyway, be sure to make allowances for the crowds if you’re planning on going up to Wine Country this weekend.

(Expect Tom Cruise and son Connor (will Red Dawn ever get remade?) to be there this year the way they were last year.)
