12th Annual Eric Medlen Nitro Night

Thursday, July 26, 2018
Viansa Sonoma Winery, 25200 Arnold Dr, Sonoma, CA

Join the Sonoma chapter of Speedway Children’s Charities (SCC) for a special evening as we honor the late Eric Medlen, a Funny Car driver from nearby Oakdale who succumbed to injuries sustained from an accident during a test session in Gainesville (Fla.) in March 2007.

This year’s event will honor a member of the drag racing community who embodies Eric’s indomitable spirit, his love for kids, and passion for giving back. The inaugural recipient of the Eric Medlen Nitro Night Award will be 2016 NHRA Funny Car Champion Ron Capps. Capps, a Northern California native and three-time Sonoma Funny Car winner, is a longtime SCC supporter and friend of Medlen.

Join us for a delightful evening at Viansa Sonoma Winery as we salute Medlen and Capps, enjoy a delicious dinner and raise money for Sonoma County youth groups in Eric’s name. The reception begins at 6:00pm, followed by dinner at 7:00pm.
