Locals Place In Malta Drag Races

Hi-Line Dragstrip in Malta held its first race of the 2013 season this past weekend. It was held in conjunction with the First State Bank of Malta car show. Saturday’s sunshine brought out the show cars and race cars in droves, as well as the locals and many visitors to enjoy the cars and the pleasant weather.

Saturday, the dragstrip held a fun run for both the show cars and the racers following the car show. A total of 79 cars made runs down the track. Sunday brought more perfect weather and the first competition meet of the 2013 Season. 

Eighty racers competed for local track points and the Summit Super Series points where racers can earn a trip to the World Finals competition in Memphis, Tenn. Both Saturday and Sunday, the racers and spectators were treated to exhibition races by the Northwest Funny Cars. It was a perfect weekend for the car show, races, meeting old friends, and making new friends.
