Raceway's Steve Page to be Inducted Into West Coast Stock Car Hall of Fame

Sonoma Raceway President and General Manager Steve Page will be inducted to the West Coast Stock Car Hall of Fame later this month.

Page and four other honorees will be inducted during a gala event at the Meritage Resort in Napa on Thursday, June 19, in conjunction with the Toyota/Save Mart 350 NASCAR weekend at Sonoma Raceway, June 20-22.

Page joined Sonoma Raceway as President and General Manager in 1991, after 11 years working in marketing and special events for baseball’s Oakland Athletics – where, among other responsibilities — he served as coordinator for the 1987 MLB All-Star Game. He was the principal advocate for Sonoma Raceway’s $100 million modernization project, which transformed it into one of the premier motor racing venues in the country. Page is involved with numerous community activities, as well as serving on the board of directors of Speedway Children’s Charities.

“It is an honor to be included among the individuals who pioneered and built this sport in our part of the country, particularly considering that I came to this industry relatively late in my career,” said Page. “I consider it a reflection of our tremendous raceway team and the unparalleled support we receive from our chairman Bruton Smith and the rest of our corporation. I am grateful to the Hall of Fame board for this recognition.”

Joining Page are Bob Bondurant, founder of the Bob Bondurant School of High Performance Driving; Marshall Chesrown, owner of several championship racing teams; Ron Eaton, driver/owner in the NASCAR K&N Pro Series West; and Mike Skinner, NASCAR Sprint Cup and NASCAR Nationwide Series driver.

“The class of inductees for 2014 features five very talented and well-known individuals, with varied backgrounds in the motorsports industry,” said Hall of Fame Board Chairman Ken Clapp. “Each of these gentlemen has been tremendously successful in his endeavor in the sport. We look forward to welcoming them as members of the Hall.”

The West Coast Stock Car Hall of Fame, which inducted its inaugural class in 2002, was founded in 2001. It memorializes significant contributors to the sport’s development and history – including designers, engineers, mechanics, drivers, racetrack owners, promoters, publicists and members of the motorsports media.
