Northern Lights Raceway season finale goes this weekend

For the first time in two months, the Northern Lights Raceway track will be in full drag race action this weekend, September 7 and 8, for the Mastec/ Norweld Industries Season Finale. That is, if the weather complies. 

The raceway executive decided to cancel the Big Bux race that was scheduled for August 17 and 18 due to weather, but since this is the final weekend, are going through with it and hoping for the best. 

The last race weekend at the Northern Lights Raceway was the Bracket Nationals, July 6 and 7. 

The raceway members voted in new executive members at the annual AGM earlier this week on September 4. Among those elected, Mike Moroun will be the new track president going forward, taking over for Robin DeRose, and Matthew Derkach was elected vice president.
