Sonoma Raceway is Hosting Two Motorcycle Events to Benefit Speedway Children’s Charities

Motorcycle riders can enjoy a high-speed day on the twists and turns of Sonoma Raceway or a scenic ride through Wine Country all in the name of charity, May 1 and May 3.

The 3J’s Motorcycle Track Days’ 17th charity event in Sonoma will take over the raceway on Wednesday, May 1, and will include a full day of riding around the 12-turn road course, a catered lunch, T-shirt, raffle and an evening reception for all riders. It’s truly the perfect day for any two-wheel enthusiast. Cost is $250 and all riding levels are welcome.

Participants can also purchase raffle tickets to win incredible prizes including a future 3J’s Track Day, a one-night stay at The Lodge at Sonoma, a champagne tasting experience at Korbel Winery or dinner at Melting Pot restaurant. 3J’s Motorcycle Track Days events have raised more than $275,000 for worthy causes since 2003.

Riders can also enjoy a scenic group ride departing from Sonoma Raceway on Saturday, May 4, with the RKA/Sonoma Raceway Wine Country Ride. The 175-mile ride, organized by RKA Motorcycle Luggage, will include a cruise through the Sonoma Valley and a stop for lunch on the Pacific coast before concluding back at the raceway. Cost is $25 (does not include lunch) and all proceeds benefit Speedway Children’s Charities.

The RKA/Sonoma Raceway Wine Country Ride will also feature a charity drawing for motorcycle gear including a $330 RKA Luggage gift certificate, an Adaptiv riding jacket, a SENA Bluetooth headset and a J&M Bluetooth headset.

Both of these events are part of Sonomafest 2013, five days of great two-wheel action on the road course at Sonoma Raceway.
