More than 120 Northern California drag racers competed on Sonoma Raceway's drag strip, May 24, during Wednesday Night Drags.

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); San Francisco's Vince Cardinale (Gear Jammer); Novato's Doug Love (Motorcycle); Windsor's Lenny Celiberti (Comp Rod); Cotati's Nick Bublitz (Sport Street); Millbrae's Russ Swanson (Street); and Novato's P.J. Femenio (High School and Top the Cops).

The Wednesday Night Drags and Top the Cops will resume on Wednesday, June 7. For more information, visit or call 800-870-RACE (7223). For track weather conditions, please call 800-870-RACE ext. 209.
