Northern Nationals Drag Race Revs Up For The Weekend

Wawa's drag races are racing into town today.
The annual Northern Nationals Drag Race kicked off festivities last night, with races beginning today - including some special entertainment, like the jet car and funny cars.
Alex Patterson - the Municipality's Director of Community Services and Tourism - notes organizers have also made one change due to popular demand: hosting the Saturday night concert and dance at the raceway.

Patterson reminds there will also be vendors and a children's play village at race track, and encourages everyone to come out - especially with a very favourable weather forecast.
Driver registration is at the Community Centre from 8 to 1, then at the airport after gates open for the races at 2 o'clock this afternoon.
Free shuttle bus service will be provided Saturday and Sunday - especially during the dance - with information about its schedule or the races' available at or through the Northern Nationals Drag Race Facebook page.
