MINI-NATS

September 7 - 8th ANNUAL EVENT

Sonoma Raceway

This is our largest annual event.  The National Shelby American Automobile Club (SAAC) has a national event every year, usually on the other side of the country.  We are a region of SAAC so we have our Mini-Nationals every year at the beginning of September.  This is a two and sometimes three-day event at Sonoma Raceway in Sonoma CA.   There is a car show, vendors selling products in addition to the day event of open track driving.  Another world class track to enjoy whether you are driving or hanging out to socialize.
