The raceway, located at state Highways 37 and 121 is ending its 10-year sponsorship agreement with Infineon Technologies and dropping the 'Infineon' while it pursues a new partner to take over naming rights.
"Our 10-year sponsorship with Infineon Technologies will expire and the company has decided not to renew the agreement," wrote John Cardinale, vice-president of communications and marketing for the raceway, in an e-mail. "We are actively pursuing a new partner to take over naming rights, but nothing is imminent at this point."
Cardinale said a name change will be made by late fall whether or not the raceway has a new partner.
Until then, the raceway's preferred names are the regional designation "Sonoma" or "formerly Infineon Raceway," according to raceway officials.
The raceway also has a new facility logo that highlights the Sonoma moniker, officials said.
Meanwhile, the raceway formerly known as Infineon has updated all their contact information to reflect the new nom de plume.
