More than 230 Northern California drag racers convened on the Sonoma Raceway drag strip, Nov. 13, for the final Wednesday Night Drags of the 2013 season.

The Wednesday Night Drags program, which is in its 25th 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 winners included Petaluma's Marko Perivolaris; San Francisco's Vince Cardinale (Gear Jammer); Novato's Doug Love (Motorcycle); Napa's Jessica Opperman (Comp Rod); San Pablo's Tracy Brooks (Sport Street); Redwood City's Robert Bromell (Street); and Napa's Andrew Galvin (High School).
