SONOMA, Calif. (Aug. 14, 2014) – Sonoma Raceway is the perfect place for families to close out summer, as the Verizon IndyCar® Series returns for the GoPro Grand Prix of Sonoma, Aug. 22-24.

For the second year in a row, kids (12 and under) will be admitted FREE all weekend, with the purchase of any adult ticket.

The main paddock will also feature a number of kid-friendly activities, including the Sonoma Raceway Kids Club booth featuring Burnin’ Bovine, the Kids Club mascot, a EuroBungy jump, Ferris wheel and free GoPro Grand Prix souvenir poster pickup at the Ticket Pit Stop.

The entire family is sure to enjoy the incredible lineup of pre-race entertainment, including a 25-minute Patriot Jet Team Air Show, GoPro Bomb Squad green flag delivery, vintage plane flyover, driver introductions and more.

Fans can also log some one-one-one time with Verizon IndyCar Series stars throughout the weekend. The IndyCar Fan Village, located in the main paddock, will host a variety of activities, including a full-field Verizon IndyCar Series autograph session on Saturday at 11:15 a.m. Drivers from the Indy Lights, Pro Mazda and USF2000 series will also host separate autograph sessions.
