Initially, the Sonoma Raceway was a USAC Championship Car circuit and in 2005, the IndyCar Series revived American open wheel racing at the circuit. In 2006, it played host to a revolutionary event when rookie Marco Andretti won a racing event, making him the youngest winner of a racing event at nineteen years old. This particular race, one of the several that make up the IndyCar series, runs on a modified course that is two and a fifth mile in length. With a carousel, it is longer than NASCAR courses but uses a similar turn.
The very first person to win a race at the Sonoma Raceway was Dan Gurney who won the USAC Championship Car race as a member of the All American Racers team, driving a Ford. He accomplished this feat in 1970. In 2005, the first IndyCar Series race was won by Tony Kanaan, a member of Andretti Green Racing while driving a Honda with a Dallara chassis. The latest winner of the Indy Grand Prix Of Sonoma is Will Power who won it as a member of Team Penske, driving a Honda and finishing the race in just one hour and forty seven minutes.
The Indy Grand Prix Of Sonoma is part of the IndyCar Series, America’s most popular open-wheel racing event. It is an international event, unlike other racing series, that was founded in 1996.
