LIKE A FINE WINE: In Indianapolis, Curt Cavin noted IndyCar "still has event contracts to finalize" for '15, including one for Sonoma Raceway. But Sonoma President & GM Steve Page said Friday that he is "'close' on securing a date for next year's event and the contract that goes with it" (INDIANAPOLIS STAR, 8/23). Meanwhile, track officials said that the 12-turn, 2.385-mile circuit was "not damaged" by the earthquake that hit the Napa Valley region yesterday, allowing yesterday's GoPro Grand Prix of Sonoma to begin at 1:40pm PT as scheduled. Page said that the decision to continue with the race "was made after surveying the facilities and learning that all local roads were open." He said that the track's emergency services were "in place" as people arrived at the facility (INDYSTAR.com, 8/25).
