After a two week hiatus following the NHRA Division 7 Drag Races presented by Korbel and last weekend's exciting FRAM/Autolite NHRA Nationals, the STP Wednesday Night Drags racers were once again the focus of attention.

Claiming class victories were Novato’s Doug Love (Motorcycle) and Zabas Rosales (Comp Rod); Rodeo’s Doug McCay (Sport Street); Pacifica’s Brian Kam (Street); Napa’s Chelsea Murdock (High School) and San Jose’s Jeff Parsons (Gear Jammers).

Bay Area police officers, who were edged out four races to three by the High School students in a Top The Cops™ exhibition race at Sunday's FRAM/Autolite NHRA Nationals, rebounded nicely and took all five races against are students on Wednesday.

The STP sponsored Wednesday Night Drag Races returns next week (August 10) and will be followed by two days of Summit ET Bracket Drag Racing on August 13-14. Both drag racing events will be carried live on www.1320go.com
