Wednesday Night Drags August 21 Results
Local drag racers provided tire-melting action on Sonoma Raceway's drag strip during Wednesday Night Drags Powered by Universal Technical Institute, August 21.
The Wednesday Night Drags program, which is in its 31st consecutive year, gives drag racers the opportunity to race on Sonoma Raceway's world-famous quarter-mile drag strip. The objective of the program is to give people, from teenagers to working professionals, a safe, legal and controlled environment in which to race their vehicles, as opposed to using city streets, back-county roads or parking lots.
Racing is featured in seven classes. Gates open at 3:30 p.m. with racing spanning from 4-10 p.m. Eliminations begin at 7 p.m., allowing more track time for the racers. Anyone with a valid driver's license can participate, providing their vehicle or motorcycle passes a simple technical inspection.
Wednesday night's class winners are listed below:
Jackpot: Vas Mirdita
Gear Jammer: Charles Roberts
Motorcycle: Eric Oliver
Comp Rod: Tommy Johnson
Sport Street: Tom Markovich
Street: Spencer Marcil
High School: Matt Norrbom
The Top the Cops™ program, where local high school students race local law enforcement officers on Sonoma Raceway's drag strip, will conclude for the season next week.
Winner photos are posted on the Sonoma Raceway Drag Racing Facebook page.
