According to CMDRA Spokesman Patrick Lambie two Fort St. John locals that are involved with the CMDRA circuit helped to make a return possible.
“Everybody enjoyed the track. There’s Burke Forster and Bruce Romak as two regulars on the track as Fort St. John residents and they’re both very involved in the association and they want us to come back up,” Lambie said.
One of the main reasons the CMDRA returned to Fort St. John in the first place last year was in part because of the improvements made to Northern Lights Raceway and the work of the staff.
“Everybody was really impressed with the staff at the track. You guys have a really hard working group of people there. There’s great people working both on the track and with safety and the whole behind the scenes, the admin was amazingly done,” Lambie stated.
At the top end of the spectrum, racers will have the potential to blaze across the strip in under seven seconds, while reaching speeds of over 200 miles per hour. There will be pro mod bikes down to regular street bikes. The Saturday morning of the event will also feature a drag race school as it did last year. It’s taught by veteran racers and racing is free your first time out.
