Justin's Sonoma Tour Notes:
"Sonoma has one Monster Energy NASCAR Cup series race date each year, and we'll be there! A 2-mile road course, this is one of the most unique facilities on the Monster Energy NASCAR Cup series circuit. Traffic is typically better-than-average coming in from Walnut Creek, California on race day.
We use the Embassy Suites in Walnut Creek, California. This hotel is adjacent to the Pleasant Hill BART (Bay Area Rapid Transit) station, which services both the Oakland (OAK) and San Francisco (SFO) airports. The hotel offers cooked-to-order breakfasts and all rooms are two-room suites. We've used this hotel for several years, and our guests always appreciate the amenities.
The weather is usually great for the races at Sonoma! The average high temperature in June is 86 degrees, and the average low is 50. We almost never deal with rain at Sonoma in June
We all like to host the race tours at Sonoma so we can spend a few extra days in San Francisco. The track is so much different than any other on the Monster Energy NASCAR Cup series schedule, and the atmosphere is more of what you expect from wine country, California. We love it here!"
