Papis to Headline NASCAR Day in Sacramento NASCAR Sprint Cup Series driver Max Papis will headline the festivities on Saturday, June 6, as the 5th annual NASCAR Day in Sacramento returns to the State Capitol.
In just four years, this has developed into one of the biggest celebrations leading up to the Toyota/Save Mart 350 NASCAR Sprint Cup Series weekend at Infineon Raceway, June 19-21 (Father’s Day weekend).
The event has been kicked up a notch this year as Papis, a road-course specialist and driver of the No. 13 GEICO Toyota, will be on hand for a Q&A with race fans, as well as to sign autographs.
The day will also include a drive of NASCAR stock cars around the streets of Sacramento under a full escort.
“I’m thankful for the opportunity to be a part of NASCAR Day in Sacramento and be surrounded by race fans,” said Papis, a 2004 Grand-Am champion. “I’ve heard great things about this celebration and I’m glad I get to experience it for myself this year. We’re very excited to get to Sonoma the third week of June and put the No. 13 GEICO Camry on the track. For the last few months, I’ve been driving ovals, but now it’s time to visit Infineon, which is one of the nicest road courses out there.”
The event will also feature music, interactive displays, special ticket offers for the big race weekend, face painting and a bounce house for children. The day spans from 11 a.m.-2 p.m. and is FREE to the public.
