One may think they’re seeing double as these two beautiful Chevy Camaros approach the startling lights at the Osoyoos,BC airport. Wine Country Racing Assn plays hosts to racers and fans from both sides of the border at their drag racing events.
As the summer heat pours over the Okanagan Valley, it’s time to put the drag cars to rest until fall. Father’s Day at Richter Pass Motorplex in Osoyoos,BC was a hit for more than just dads. Wine Country Racing Association hosted the third of their 5 events scheduled for 2018.
The results for the day follow:
