The raceway's popular program gives people a safe, legal, controlled environment in which to drag race their cars, away from city streets.

Anyone with a driver's license can compete, providing their vehicle or motorcycle passes a simple technical inspection. All gas-propelled vehicles must have mufflers (if applicable). The event attracts a varied crowd, and almost any type of street-legal vehicle is eligible to run on the drag strip.

When: Most Wednesday nights March 13 - Nov. 13, 2019. Gates open at 3:30 p.m., racing spans from 4 p.m.-10 p.m.

If you plan on racing, you must be at the track by 7 p.m. The earlier you get here, the more time runs you'll get.

Racing may end earlier, depending on car count.

TOP THE COPS: High school students will drag race against Bay Area law enforcement officers when the popular Top the Cops™ program returns as part of Sonoma Raceway's weekly Wednesday Night Drags program, date TBD.

The Top the Cops™ program, which enters its 25th season this year, offers an alternative to illegal street racing and gives teens the chance to race against law enforcement officers, who compete in full uniform in their official vehicles on the quarter-mile drag strip. The program also provides a unique environment for the officers to talk with teens about safe driving and the rules of the road.
