The Yellowhead Roadrunners are always looking for new members with an interest in vehicles of all types. This year, at the club’s 17th annual Runway Drag Races, they are again giving novice racers a chance to test their skills on the track. While there will be some fast cars, the races are open to anyone, all drivers need to do is bring a vehicle, a helmet and be in time for the pre race orientation.
