Wednesday Night Drags Results, August 19.

More than 110 Northern California drag racers convened on the Sonoma Raceway drag strip, August 19, for the Wednesday Night Drags.

The Wednesday Night Drags program, which is in its 26th year, gives drag racers the opportunity to drag race on Sonoma Raceway's world-famous quarter-mile drag strip. The objective of the program is to give people, from teen-agers to working professionals, a safe, legal and controlled environment in which to race their vehicles, as opposed to using city streets or back-county roads.

Racing is featured in seven classes. Timed runs begin at 4 p.m. with racing spanning from 5-10 p.m. anyone with a driver's license can compete, providing their vehicle or motorcycle passes a simple technical inspection.

Class winner included Santa Rosa's Jorge Valencia (Jackpot) San Jose's Ron Steve Jaslovsky (Gear Jammer); Novato's Doug Love (Motorcycle); Novato's Joe Piazza (Comp Rod); Rohnert Park's Nick Bublitz (Sport Street); Glen Ellen's Bob Norrbom SR (Street).

The Wednesday Night Drags will resume on September 2. For more information, visit www.racesonoma.com/youcanrace or call 800-870-RACE (7223).
