Wawa's 8th Annual Northern Nationals Drag Race Arrives

Wawa's drag races are racing into town today.

The 8th annual Northern Nationals Drag Race kicked off festivities last night, with races beginning today - and Wawa Dragway Committee Chair Rob Sanderson reminds there's racing for "basically any age group".

Sanderson notes there is other special entertainment, including funny cars, fun for the kids, and a fan favourite from the Wawa Volunteer Fire Department.

Sanderson adds the transit bus will be running to help people get to the airport - and reminds volunteers are still welcome.

Driver registration is at the Community Centre from 8 am to 1 pm, when it moves to the airport, where gates will open for the races at 2 o'clock pm.
