I’m looking forward to having a great weekend back on the track. I’ve always enjoyed Sonoma and have had some solid top-10 finishes there. I’m looking forward to adding to that number on Sunday.”

Fans everywhere are using our product for grilling and camping at races and 7-Eleven provides for quick and easy propane exchange.”
“Ever since Boris and I started together in 2006, we have had a shot to win in Sonoma. I know with Boris in the car this weekend we will have another opportunity to compete for a win,” said Frank Stoddard, owner of Go Fas Racing. “We’ve been working over the past few years to have 7-Eleven back with us and with the support of AmeriGas this year we were able to bring it all together.
