NASCAR fans in California have a new way to show their support for stock car racing. You can now purchase special license plates with the NASCAR stripes and a message that says “NASCAR Drives for Parks.”

This was announced by the sanctions authority on June 9th in a press release. NASCAR also stated that it had partnered with the California Natural Resources Agency to make this endeavor possible. The license plates will help raise funds for California’s Outdoors for All initiative and the NASCAR Foundation.

License plates are available to California residents at Fans heading to Sonoma Raceway for the June 11-12 race weekend will also have the opportunity to register for their new license plates as they prepare to challenge Camping World Truck Series and Cup Series drivers for victory to see fight.

“This is a wonderful opportunity for NASCAR fans in California not only to show their love for NASCAR, but to make a tremendous impact,” said Nichole Krieger, executive director of the NASCAR Foundation. “This initiative aligns with the NASCAR Foundation’s mission, and we are excited to provide opportunities for Californians to have greater access to their state’s natural wonders.”

Digital versions of the special plates are available on social media and several websites. A physical version will also be on display during the packed race weekend at Sonoma Raceway.

As part of the announcement, NASCAR confirmed that special plates will be doing laps around the track. These signs will be displayed on the Toyota Camry TRD Pace Car as it leads the field ahead of the green flag and on caution laps around the street course.

“Putting the new NASCAR license plates on cars will help children and adults from all of our communities get outdoors and improve their physical, emotional and mental health,” said California Secretary of Natural Resources Wade Crowfoot. “The introduction of these specialty plates gives NASCAR fans an opportunity to support racing, outdoor activities and California parks.”

While NASCAR will use these special California license plates to raise money for its formation, an NFL franchise uses a similar method to support its formation. The Las Vegas Raiders have specialty plates available in Nevada.

The NFL team introduced its new pursuit back in 2019. The Raiders worked with the Nevada Department of Motor Vehicles to create the special plates. These silver and black shields featured the Raiders emblem and the phrase “Commitment to Excellence”. They also included the letters “AL” next to the numbers as a nod to late owner Al Davis.

The advertised cost for the personalized signs in 2019 was $62. $30 should go directly to the Raiders Foundation, Silver and Black’s charitable arm. This foundation works to improve the health of the community and citizens through support of the military and youth development.

Pricing has changed in the time since the announcement. The records are now $61, but fans can personalize them for an additional $35. Also, only $25 of the fee now goes directly to the Raiders Foundation.
