Eric Medlen Nitro Night

Viansa Sonoma Winery, 25200 Arnold Dr, Sonoma, CA

6:00 P.M. Reception 7:30 P.M. Dinner      

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. This year’s recipient of the Eric Medlen Nitro Night Award is two-time NHRA Funny Car Champion Jack Beckman. Beckman, a 12-year cancer survivor and 2015 Sonoma Funny Car winner, is a longtime SCC supporter.

Join us for a delightful evening as we salute Medlen and Beckman, enjoy a delicious dinner and raise money for Sonoma County youth groups in Eric’s name. For more information contact Cheri Plattner at 707-933-3950 or
