Diesel drag races at Northern Lights Raceway this weekend

FORT ST. JOHN, B.C. — Northern Lights Raceway is going to be hosting its first-ever weekend of diesel-powered drag races this weekend.

The event is being put on in conjunction with Pro Street Automotive, and the competition will require racers’ engines to run on the spontaneously combusting fuel. The race rules will be the same as those set up by the NHDRA.

Brush says that in addition to races, there will also be a dynamometer set up for racers to test the power of their machines. He says that so far, there are approximately 30 drivers that have signed up to race, but the event is open to the public. Anyone with a diesel car or truck will be able to take it down the track provided the vehicle is clean and can pass a tech inspection. Admission for racers is $80, while spectators get in for just $5.

For more information, contact Northern Lights Raceway or Pro Street Automotive via their respective Facebook pages.
