SONOMA — Race fans can take home a piece of the action on Toyota/Save Mart 350 race day, Sunday, at the Speedway Children’s Charities charity auction. With nearly 40 incredible items from the racing and sports worlds, including “Ride of a Lifetime” experiences with top NASCAR drivers, there is sure to be something for everyone.

The action gets under way in the Wine Country Winner’s Circle at 8 a.m. for the auction preview, and the gavel drops at 9 a.m. for the live auction.  This year’s auction starts an hour earlier than usual, so fans can fit in even more pre-race fun.

Fifteen race fans will win a “Ride of a Lifetime” with their favorite NASCAR Sprint Cup Series driver during pre-race ceremonies, which includes the chance to ride around the road course in the back of a Toyota Tundra during driver introductions.

In addition, more than 40 racing and sports-related items will be up for grabs during a live charity auction benefitting SCC, the charitable arm of Sonoma Raceway.  Some of the most highly-anticipated items include NASCAR sheet metal, autographed Brad Keselowski race gloves, San Francisco Giants pitcher Tim Lincecum signed baseball, NBA All-Star Point Guard Stephen Curry autographed Golden State Warriors jersey, a helmet signed by Jeff Gordon, and much, much more.

Listed below are the items up for auction during the NASCAR Charity Auction on Sunday at 9 a.m.:

Track Walk

Another way to support Speedway Children’s Charities during NASCAR weekend is at the 9th annual Post-Race Track Walk. Fans can walk on the racing surface just minutes after the checkered flag drops on the Toyota/Save Mart 350 and make a donation to SCC at each one of the access points. The walk will feature specially-painted blue lug nuts dropped around the road course, each of which is redeemable for a valuable prize at the Ticket Pit Stop located behind the Main Grandstand.

For more information or to get tickets for the Toyota/Save Mart 350 weekend, visit racesonoma.com/nascar or call 800-870-RACE (7223). The Sonoma Chapter of Speedway Children’s Charities is dedicated to helping children in need in Sonoma County and has distributed more than $4.5 million to qualified youth groups since 2001. For more information on the local chapter, visit racesonoma.com/scc.
