Drivers Said and Pruett to Headline NASCAR Day in Sacramento on June 14

SONOMA, Calif. (June 9, 2008) -- NASCAR Sprint Cup Series driver Boris Said and Auburn resident Scott Pruett will headline the festivities on Saturday, June 14, as the 4th annual NASCAR Day in Sacramento returns to the State Capital.

In just three short years, this has developed into one of the biggest celebrations leading up to the Toyota/Save Mart 350 NASCAR Sprint Cup Series weekend at Infineon Raceway, June 20-22.

The event has been kicked up a notch this year as Said, a crowd favorite in Sonoma and the 2003 pole-sitter for the big race, will be on hand for a Q&A with race fans, as well as to sign autographs.

He will be joined by Pruett, who has a career-best NASCAR Cup finish of third place (2004) at Infineon Raceway. He is best known for his sports-car exploits in the Grand American Rolex Sports Car Series -- he won the Grand Am race in Sonoma in 2007 and won this past weekend's event in Watkins Glen (N.Y.).

The day will also include a drive of NASCAR stock cars around the streets of Sacramento under a full Sacramento Police Department escort.

"I can't wait to get up to Sacramento," commented Said. "I'm told the area has some of the most passionate NASCAR fans, so I guess I'll get to see them for myself."

The event will also feature music, interactive displays, special ticket offers for the big race weekend, face painting and a bounce house for children. The day spans from 11 a.m.-2 p.m. and is FREE to the public.
