eBay at NASCAR Toyota/Save Mart 350, Sonoma Raceway

Events, Motorsports  /   /  By Derek Mau

Did you know eBay Motors is a primary sponsor of Charlotte Motor Speedway, Laguna Seca, and Sonoma Raceway? Next up on our race calendar is NASCAR Sprint Cup Series Toyota/Save Mart 350 Race at Sonoma Raceway in Sonoma, California, June 22 – 24.

Sonoma Raceway is one of two road courses on the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series schedule. The second is Watkins Glen on August 12. Just because Sonoma Raceway has more right turns than left, don’t expect the drivers to be confused. Today most of the drivers running the Sprint Cup Series have road racing backgrounds, so turning right in addition to turning left is not a problem.

If you are able to make it to Sonoma Raceway this weekend, you are welcome to visit the eBay Fan Zone to interact with the eBay team and win some cool swag. If you can’t make it, follow the “live” race action on our racing socialcast page at Our on-site team and race fans will be posting twitter updates and photos straight from Sonoma Raceway.

We’ll have a green screen photo booth setup so you can get a picture of yourself sitting inside your dream car. Afterwards, you can save and share the image through our “My Vehicles” feature found on eBay Motors.

While visiting the eBay Fan Zone, download the eBay Motors mobile app and bid on Kevin Harvick’s Nextel Cup car which will be displayed in our booth. We think this is a rare opportunity to own an authentic Richard Childress Racing GM Goodwrench Kevin Harvick road course Nextel Cup car.

For those who are new to Sonoma Raceway, you can find some good spots to watch the action. A view from the hill above Turn 2 gives spectators a pretty good vantage point watching the cars flying down the back straight and the doing a fast exit out of Turn 1 up the  hill to Turn2. Turn 7, at the opposite side of the track, is also a good place to watch approach a tight corner and accelerate hard into the esses of Turn 8 and 8a.
