Wednesday Night Drags Results, Sep. 17.

More than 130 Northern California drag racers convened on the Sonoma Raceway drag strip, Sep. 17, for the Wednesday Night Drags.

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 winner included Rohnert Park's Jeston Laingland (Gear Jammer); Pinole's Curtis Fhuitt (Motorcycle); Novato's Joe Piazza (Comp Rod); Rodeo's Douglas McCay (Sport Street); San Rafael's Scott Sterley(Street); and Sonoma's Wyatt Lennol (High School).

The Wednesday Night Drags will resume on Sep. 24. For more information, visit or call 800-870-RACE (7223).
