Xfinity Series to go to Sonoma in 2023 with a record 8 road courses on slate

For the first time ever, the NASCAR Xfinity Series will challenge the picturesque rolling hills of Sonoma Raceway at the DoorDash 250 on Saturday, June 10, 2023.

NASCAR announced today the Xfinity Series will join the NASCAR Cup Series race weekend at Sonoma Raceway next year for the first time in the history of the series as part of its full 2023 season schedule release.  The Toyota/Save Mart 350 NASCAR Cup Series race will return to Sonoma Raceway on Sunday June 11, 2023.

The Xfinity Series is a proving ground for up-and-coming NASCAR Cup Series drivers and has produced some of NASCAR’s biggest stars. Fans will be treated to three days of racing action over the weekend.

“We are thrilled to have the Xfinity Series racing here in Sonoma for the first time ever,” said raceway executive vice president and general manager Jill Gregory. “This is part of our promise to our fans to keep raising the bar.  And we expect several of the Cup Series racers to pull double duty and run the Xfinity Series race as well.”

The 2023 date remains fixed on the same weekend as this past June. The Toyota/Save Mart 350 will span 110 laps and will run the historically popular chute configuration, adding to the fan experience with more opportunities for passing and on-track action.

Practice and qualifying times, other companion events and TV broadcast information will be provided at a later date.

This event comes a week after the Portland race and is among of 1 of 8 road courses on the 2022 season. That’s 24% of the season on road courses.
