More than 160 Northern California drag racers convened on the Sonoma Raceway drag strip for the final event of the 2014 Wednesday Night Drags season, Nov. 12.

The Wednesday Night Drags program, which is in its 26th 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 teen-agers 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 seven classes. Timed runs begin at 4 p.m. with racing spanning from 5-10 p.m. anyone with a driver's license can compete, providing their vehicle or motorcycle passes a simple technical inspection.

Class winners included Hercules' Charles Allison (Gear Jammer); Novato's Doug Love (Motorcycle); Vacaville's Anthony Pelayo (Comp Rod); Sonoma's Cody Oaks (Sport Street); Napa's Chelsea Murdock (Street); and Walnut Creek's Zac Machek (High School).
