Drag Racing revs up another season at Osoyoos RPM

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

The Wine Country Racing Association revs up another season of drag car racing at RPM with its season opener today. Gates open at 9 a.m., with time trials scheduled for 10.

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 — cactus is a concern.

Tickets are just $10 for adults and kids 12 and under and 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 May 29, June 5 and June 19, Sept. 25 and Oct. 9.
