The hot cars are back this weekend at Richter Pass Motorplex.

The Wine Country Racing Association is turning the keys on another season of drag car racing at RPM with its season opener Sunday.

Gates open at 9 a.m., with time trials scheduled for 10 to noon.

The actual racing — two cars side-by-side down an 1/8-mile track — begins at 1 p.m.

Spectators are encouraged to bring lawn chairs and wear proper footwear.

Tickets are just $10 for adults and kids 12 and under are free when accompanied by an adult.

RPM is located at Osoyoos Airport, just west of Hwy. 97 on Hwy. 3.

Additional racing dates this season include June 4 and June 18, Sept. 24 and Oct. 8.

While the airport strip appears to be available for use in 2017, future use of the property is not as certain. The Osoyoos Airport Development Society wants to make the runway more aircraft-friendly this season, securing funding to make improvements to the strip and surrounding property.

Its expectation is to make the airport better available to aircraft and consequently expects more aircraft to make use of the runway.
