Wednesday Night Drags Results, March 22
With the ever-changing Sonoma weather, Wednesday Night Drags nonetheless stormed onto Sonoma Raceway's drag strip last night, March 22, for the second time this season as more than 100 drag racers competed for top titles.
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 Vacaville's Cesar Del Real (Gear Jammer); Hayward's Joe Sisk (Motorcycle); Brentwood's Christopher Martin (Comp Rod); Richmond's Leonard Sampson (Sport Street); Novato's Bobby Grabrian (Street); and Fairfield's Josh Peacock (High School).
The Wednesday Night Drags will resume on Wednesday, April 12. 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.
