(Photos by Eric Myers) Here are more photos from the NHRA Sonoma Nationals, including both the Pros and Sportsman racers, so you can see header flames and wheels up action both. The variety is great and we’re happy to share them with you, so click on any photo in the gallery below and then roll through them like a slide show. It’s the best way to see our photos and get the most out of them. If you missed our first gallery, click the link below to check that one out too!
This iconic California dragstrip and motorsports facility has a history that is as storied as any you will find and it’s a truly different and special facility. With the ocean so close and sea-level conditions or better the norm, this is one fast dragstrip and records have fallen here for decades. It’s also located in the Napa Valley, known for spectacular views, wineries, restaurants, and drives. This is a location unlike any other the NHRA Camping World Drag Racing Series will see each year.
It also happens to be part of the famed Western Swing, a part of the season where racers run at all west coast tracks one right after the other, with everyone hoping for a “sweep” of the swing.
Thanks to Eric Myers who was on-site checking shooting photos to share with all of you. We’ll have Wes Allison on hand in Pomona for that part of the Western Swing as well, so rest assured you’ll have lots of NHRA Drag Racing photos coverage.
