I Raced at Sonoma Raceway, Took the Cars 3 Pit Stop Challenge and Learned the History of NASCAR Racing

#Cars3Event Sonoma Raceway

You know your day’s going to be amazing when it starts out with your bus driving straight onto the race track at Sonoma Raceway. No, this wasn’t a dream. Nor a video game.
