Klay Thompson - 2016 - Rich Yee
NBA All-Star Klay Thompson, pictured above in a game earlier this year against the Miami Heat, lit up the scoreboard with 37 points on Sunday afternoon at Oracle Arena as the Golden State Warriors took a one-game lead over the Portland Trail Blazers in Game 1 of the Western Conference semifinals. The Warriors won convincingly, 118-106, sprinting to a 20-point lead at the end of the first quarter and were never seriously challenged. Thompson also finished with 5 rebounds and 5 assists. Game 2 is scheduled for Tuesday, May 3, at 7:30 p.m. at Oracle Arena and injured Warriors guard Stephen Curry will continue to rest his sprained right knee. A return for Game 3 in Portland on Saturday, at 5:30 p.m., is considered possible.

RAAM - 5-2-2016
The 4-rider coed Team Tri For Hospice has two goals for the 2016 Race Across America (RAAM). One is to raise money and awareness about the importance of hospice care and the other is to break the 4-rider coed 2014 record set by Stand Up 2 Cancer/BMS. The four riders (left to right) Karen Buxton, Becky Sage, Chip Harris and Charles Fields are all experienced with hospice. "It's something that's important to all of us," said crew member Lisa Sexton, Fields' wife. "Supporting hospice care is vital, not just for the role it plays for folks at the end of life, but also for helping caretakers and family members and providing care for them as well." Buxton started the team in 2012 after her brother passed away and has raised nearly $70,000 for her local hospice.

INDYCAR Championship Weekend,
NASCAR Highlight 2016 Sonoma Raceway
Major Event Schedule

Sonoma Raceway will continue to serve as Northern California's premier motorsports destination in 2016, with a schedule headlined by the country's top racing series and the Verizon IndyCar Series championship weekend.
       
For the second consecutive year, the Verizon IndyCar Series championship will be decided on the challenging road course, with the GoPro Grand Prix of Sonoma slated as the series season finale, Sept. 16-18. The 2016 Sonoma Raceway major event schedule will also feature the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series, NHRA Mello Yello Drag Racing Series and historic-car racing.
 
The NASCAR Sprint Cup Series makes its only stop in Northern California for the Toyota/Save Mart 350, June 24-26. The first road-course event of the series' 36-race schedule has become one of the most exciting and unpredictable each year, with 10 different winners over the past 11 years.
       
NASCAR's popular elimination-style qualifying format will return June 25, along with the 64-lap main event for the NASCAR Pro Series West, the Chevys Fresh Mex 200. The 110-lap Toyota/Save Mart 350 will be the feature on Sunday.
             
After closing out the 2015 Verizon IndyCar Series season in dramatic fashion, the series will culminate its 2016 season at Sonoma Raceway, Sept. 16-18. This marks a three-week shift from Sonoma's traditional IndyCar date in late August, which allowed the raceway to continue as the series finale.
 
"Last year's championship weekend demonstrated pretty clearly that Sonoma Raceway is an ideal venue for the Verizon IndyCar Series season finale, with a challenging circuit to contest the championship, along with the unparalleled backdrop of Wine Country and the San Francisco Bay Area," said Steve Page, president and general manager of Sonoma Raceway. "We look forward to crowning IndyCar champions in Sonoma for many years to come."
 
The 12-turn Sonoma Raceway road course served as a perfect setting for the conclusion of the 2015 season, as Target Chip Ganassi's Scott Dixon claimed his second consecutive Sonoma victory and second Verizon IndyCar Series championship title.
 
"Sonoma has really become one of the must-see events on the Verizon IndyCar Series schedule over the years," said Dixon. "The Target team has had great success there recently, and we ended the season on a high note there in 2015 with our second-straight win at the track en route to the championship. I always look forward to that race, and so do the hundreds of guests the team entertains there each year."
       
Race fans should expect another record-breaking weekend as the fastest sport on earth returns to Sonoma for back-to-back weekends of the world's best drag racing, highlighted by the 29th annual Toyota NHRA Sonoma Nationals, July 29-31. Seven track records were set in 2015, including a national elapsed time record of 3.921 seconds by Funny Car winner Jack Beckman. 
       
The NHRA Division 7 Drag Races, presented by Korbel, kicks off the drag racing weekends, July 22-24.
 
Fans of vintage racing will have multiple opportunities to see historic machines take to the road course, highlighted by the Sonoma Historic Motorsports Festival (June 2-5) and the Classic Sports Racing Group Charity Challenge (Oct. 1-2). The popular Ferrari Challenge North America Series also returns April 8-10.
 
Ticket for all 2016 major events at Sonoma Raceway are now available. For tickets or more information, call 800-870-RACE (7223) or visit SonomaRaceway.com.
        
The complete Sonoma Raceway major event schedule for 2016:
* Sonoma Historic Motorsports Festival: June 2-5
* Toyota/Save Mart 350 NASCAR Sprint Cup Series: June 24-26
* NHRA Division 7 Drag Races, presented by Korbel: July 22-24
* Toyota NHRA Sonoma Nationals: July 29-31
