Sonoma Raceway Announces Details of Upcoming Track Repave

Sonoma Raceway announced Tuesday details of its upcoming track repave that will take place prior to the NASCAR weekend at the facility in June 2024.

The track, which has not been repaved in 23 years, has awarded the repave contract to Bay Cities Paving & Grading of Concord, California. The repave project will include both layouts of the road course that NASCAR has utilized in its races at the venue as well as the drag strip located in the infield.

In the track’s announcement, track executive vice president and general manager Brian Flynn explained the need for maintaining the facility for more than just the yearly NASCAR race weekend.

“Our racing surface is in use more than 300 days per year,” Flynn said in a press release. “While our headline event is the Toyota/Save Mart 350 NASCAR weekend, our raceway is used by car clubs, automotive enthusiasts, corporate clients and manufacturers on a daily basis. It’s important that we continue to upgrade this first-class facility for everyone who comes to Sonoma Raceway.”

Milling of the racing surface will begin after the final scheduled event of the year at the track on December 16th and 17th, and work is expected to last through January and February of 2024.

The track will also be using materials in the repave to help increase competition on track immediately following it. “The materials being used allow us to offer a track with a seasoned feel for the drivers,” said Steve Swift, senior vice president of operations and development, Speedway Motorsports. “This means competition should be exciting right off the bat in 2024.”

NASCAR’s first race weekend on the new track surface will take place on June 7-9, 2024, featuring the NASCAR Cup Series, NASCAR Xfinity Series, and ARCA Menards Series West.

Since the track’s opening in December 1968, it has played host to 34 Cup Series races, one Xfinity Series race, five Craftsman Truck Series races, and 44 ARCA Menards Series West races.
