If you spent Saturday wondering what some of those hotrods parked at Gyro Park could do on the track, here’s your chance to find out.

The Wine Country Racing Association has another installment of drag racing at Richter Pass Motorplex today, hot on the heels of the very popular Cactus Jalopies car show.

In fact, the two go hand-in-hand, with cars entered into the Cactus Jalopies event receiving a bit of a break at the gate this morning.

And it’s not just the hot rods the Wine Country Racing Association is inviting.

New racers are encouraged to come early to register, pass their car through technical inspection and have a chance to chat and get in on the racing themselves.

The gates open at 9 a.m. for anyone so interested. The actual racing — two cars side-by-side down an 1/8-mile track — goes at 11 with elimination rounds starting at 1 p.m.

Spectators are encouraged to bring lawn chairs and wear proper footwear. Some seating is available.

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. Follow the signs from town.

Additional racing dates this season include June 16, Sept. 8 and Sept. 22.
