When the Foot Meets the Grape

As mentioned before, the IndyCar series now turns its attention to Sonoma, California, home of the Infineon Raceway for the Indy Grand Prix of Sonoma. Now when you think of Sonoma, you probably think of wine, right? Of course you do, especially if you’re an Andretti. So the marketing wizards at the IRL have found yet another way to combine high-speed racing with alcohol consumption.

Not to be outdone by Jeff Simmons and his IndyCar Brew, drivers Buddy Rice, Scott Sharp and Kosuke Matsuura will be in San Francisco on August 23rd stomping grapes. No joke. No word on when or where you’ll be able to drink whatever (if anything) results from this, but a good time will no doubt be had by all.

And if you can’t make it to San Francisco with flowers in your hair, you can always call Well Done or The Kiwi for a good time…and tickets as well.
