Wednesday Night Drags Results, July 8.

More than 100 Northern California drag racers convened on the Sonoma Raceway drag strip, July 8, 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 Livermore's Mike Henesian (Gear Jammer); San Rafael's Richie Love (Motorcycle); Petaluma's Mitch Gately (Comp Rod); Newark's Rick Mcllmoil (Sport Street); Richmond's Chris Burton (Street); St. Helena's Mike Mitchell (Jackpot) and Redwood City's Sean Milburn (High School)

The Wednesday Night Drags will resume on July 15. For more information, visit or call 800-870-RACE (7223).
