Wednesday Night Drags and Top the Cops heated up Sonoma Raceway's drag strip on August 16, as more than 120 Northern California drag racers competed for winning 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.

Local law enforcement officer Chris Serrano from Novato PD fell second to San Rafael's Allison White during his first-ever Top the Cops race.
