Perfect Weather Over the Irwindale Dragstrip

By Andrew Paul Bettridge


May 23rd at Irwindale Dragstrip was perfect weather for drag racing in Southern California. With a light breeze racers were filling up the staging lanes throughout the night. Most of the runs of the night went through without a hitch except for 2 runs for the night, where a blue late model mustang got loose and hit the wall ending its night at the track. Later one of the racers lost their front left wheel just after the finish line but the driver was able to keep it under control and keep it off the wall.

Come out and support your local track and keep the racing off the streets and on the track where it belongs.
