5. 3J’s Motorcycle Track Days



Runs and rallies are all good, but here’s an event for those wanting to go fast for a good cause. Since 2003, 3J’s Motorcycle Track Days have generated nearly $450,000 for charity. Last year, the event’s 20th annual, 3J’s raised more than $30,000 for Speedway Children’s Charities for children in need of educational, financial, social and medical help.

“The event we started a long time ago has morphed into something else,” said Jere Starks, vice president of facilities at Sonoma Raceway. “It’s a charity-driven event that allows us to do what we love to do with people who want to share that experience.”

This year’s event is scheduled for Wednesday, April 29 from 8am to 5pm. To register for the event go to www.racesonoma.com.
