Coluber mormon is a great snake.
Adults generally accept rodents or lizards, even both, and I have discovered that juveniles absolutely relish crickets.
As far as housing, I would recommend a moderately large cage, with some vertical space to allow for climbing. A 36" by 24" by 24" would probably be a good size for one, or even a 48" by 24" by 24" would likely be even better. A nice tight hide spot and lots of climbing branches. I especially recommend manzanita for this purpose as it a good, spindly branch and the racers love to climb on it. As for substrate, dirt or decomposed granite works well, especially with a layer of oak leaflitter over the top as it promotes foraging activity.
Any more questions, just ask. Good luck!
