Sacramento mayor Kevin Johnson, the former NBA All-Star point guard and Cal star, was the grand marshal for Sunday’s IndyCar Series GoPro Indy Grand Prix of Sonoma.
Even at the track, Johnson couldn’t escape the subject of the Sacramento Kings and their future. With another round of rumors circulating regarding the Kings’ new destination, this time Virginia Beach, Johnson indicated that the city would do what it could to keep the team in town, with or without the current owners, the Maloof family.
“We have fought very hard to keep our team in Sacramento, and we’ve been successful for the past two years,” he said. “We’re not giving up, but ultimately, it’s up to the Maloofs.”
