Special to the Chronicle

Despite threatening skies, the Wine Country Racing Association (WCRA) pulled off a successful start to the 2018 drag racing season at Osoyoos’ Richter Pass Motorplex.

Results for the weekend’s event follow:

Sportsman’s Bracket: Glenn Taylor (Osoyoos) was able to climb his way to the top of a mountain of street cars Sunday. Consistency in his 1990 Ford Mustang pays off.

Pro Bracket: Robin Reding (Merrit) drove his 1927 Model T to victory in the Pro Bracket.

Super Pro: Mike “Bucky” Stewart (Langley) took his 1967 Chevy 2 to the victory lane in the Super Pro division.

Bike / Sled: Lorne Stavinga (Grand Forks) zipped past the competition to take home the Bike/Sled trophy.
