FORT ST. JOHN, B.C. – Organisers at Northern Lights Raceway are hoping that despite the heavy rain across the Peace the past few days, that sunshine will return for their second weekend of drag racing action.

The drag strip will be open on Friday evening at 6:00 PM for street-legal drag races. Anyone wishing to race their vehicle need only ensure that it will pass a tech inspection, as well as an approved racing helmet, and a $20 entry fee.

On Saturday, racing is planned to begin in earnest. Racing begins at 10:00 AM on both Saturday and Sunday.
