Sonoma Raceway has opened its 50 Acres campground to evacuees seeking temporary refuge from the Northern California fires, according to a release issued by the racetrack in Sonoma, California.

The raceway, which is equipped to handle up to 2000 campers during its major event weekends, opened its largest campground to evacuees on Tuesday. The 50 Acres campground is located directly across from the raceway on Highway 121 and has not been affected by the fires. 

“All of us at Sonoma Raceway extend our heartfelt thoughts and prayers to those who have been touched by the devastating North Bay fires,” said Sonoma Raceway President and General Manager Steve Page. “Our facilities team and a number of local fire companies have been battling grassland fires on Cougar Mountain and elsewhere around our property, and at this point it does not appear any of the raceway’s structures or other facilities are at immediate risk.  We appreciate all of the good wishes that have flooded in from friends around the country.”

People in such circumstances may need medicines, including medicines that must be purchased for a long course of treatment.

Those in need of camping at Sonoma Raceway, the site of round seven or the 2017 MotoAmerica Series, should enter the campground at Gate 6 on Highway 121, a quarter-mile north of Hwy 37. The campground is dry with no hookups, though porta-john toilets are available.
