By Jim McCombe

After a week’s hiatus due to last week’s rain, area drag racers were back in action at the STP Wednesday Night Drags at Infineon Raceway, June 8, with an evening dominated by familiar faces. Class winners included Doug Love (Motorcycle), Mitch Gately (Comp Rod), Doug McCay (Sport Street), Brad Bowen (Street), Marko Perivolaris (High School) and Craig Love in the recently created Stick Shift class. The Jack Pot class was not run.

Area police officers had to settle for a draw against area high school students in the Top The Cops runoff's led by first time competitor Officer Mark Peters of the Fremont Police Department.

The weekly STP Wednesday Night Drags returns next Wednesday (June 15) and will be aired live on www.1320go.com. For more information visit www.infineonraceway.com/youcanrace or call 800-870-RACE (7223).
