Wednesday Night Drags Results, June 7
More than 130 Northern California drag racers took to Sonoma Raceway's drag strip, June 7, during Wednesday Night Drags including a track record 12 high school racers.
The Wednesday Night Drags program, which is in its 29th 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 teenagers 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 six classes. Timed runs begin at 3:30 p.m. with racing spanning from 4-10 p.m. Anyone with a driver's license can compete, providing their vehicle or motorcycle passes a simple technical inspection.
Class winners included Santa Rosa's Tom Johnson (Jackpot); Napa's Ron L Jacks (Gear Jammer); Novato's Doug Love (Motorcycle); Napa's Kevin D'Adamo (Comp Rod); Napa's Tom Markovich (Sport Street); Novato's Bobby Grabrian (Street); and Granite Bay's Alex Deaner (High School).
The Wednesday Night Drags and Top the Cops will resume next Wednesday, June 14. For more information, visit www.sonomaraceway.com/track/you-can-race/ or call 800-870-RACE (7223). For track weather conditions, please call 800-870-RACE ext. 209.
