Nearly 200 Northern California drag racers convened at Sonoma Raceway for the season kickoff of the Wednesday Night Drags program, March 13.

The popular program, which celebrates its 25th anniversary in 2013, consists of drag racing competition in seven different classes: Sport Street, Street, Gear Jammer, Comp Rod, High School, Jackpot and Motorcycle.

Winners from Wednesday’s event include: Concord’s Nick Bublitz (Sport Street); Napa’s DJ Opperman (Street); Santa Rosa’s Craig Love (Gear Jammer); Petaluma’s Steve Wellman (Comp Rod); Sonoma’s Mike Norrborm (High School); Petaluma’s Marko Perivolaris (Jackpot) and Novato’s Toey Nu (Motorcycle). A complete list of results can be found below.

The Wednesday Night Drags will return to the Sonoma Valley drag strip next Wednesday, March 20. The event will take place alongside the Sonoma Drift program, which runs behind the grandstand in the main paddock.
