The 31st annual Toyota NHRA Sonoma Nationals returns to Sonoma Raceway July 27-29. It is the 15th stop on the 24-race circuit for the NHRA Mello Yello Drag Racing Series.

Funny Car driver J.R. Todd will look for success for the third straight year at the 31st annual Toyota NHRA Sonoma Nationals. Todd, driver of the 10,000-horsepower DHL Toyota Camry Funny Car, won the NHRA Mello Yello Drag Racing Series event two years ago in Top Fuel, followed by his first career Funny Car win in 2017. Todd became just the second driver to win in two pro classes in Sonoma (the other is Don “The Snake” Prudhomme). Looking ahead to this weekend, Todd hopes to keep up his impressive pace at the scenic facility in the heart of wine country.

Sixteen-time NHRA Funny Car world champion John Force will notch his 750th NHRA Mello Yello Drag Racing Series event at Sonoma Raceway this weekend, and the popular champion will also be on the hunt for his 150th event victory after taking the Funny Car win in Denver on Sunday. Force, the winningest driver in NHRA history and an eight-time Sonoma winner, took out the second winningest Funny Car driver, Ron Capps, in the final round and celebrated his first victory in over a year.
