Two Prince Rupert racers made some noise at the recent Houston Drags race event from July 17 – 19.

First, Kham Shantz took the King of the Hill title for dragsters.

Then, Rupert’s Gord Hidber placed second in the Sunday Super Pro category, giving him some valuable points for the Terrace Drag Race Association’s (TDRA) summer series.

For the Bike King of the Hill championship, Seth Harmer nabbed first-place and John Wreggit won the Gamblers category.

Mike McNeice shot up the TDRA rankings with a first-place showing in Sunday Super Pro, while in the Pro division, Pete Brewer took first and Eric Jaarsma grabbed second.

For the bike/sled component, top spot went to Steve Way, while Laura Angal followed him up in second-place.

Overall, 67 cars took part in the 2015 Houston Drags event.

Now the TDRA members and dragster enthusiasts will gear up for Terrace’s Riverboat Days, where TDRA hosts its annual Hot August Nites.

Street Legal races take place this Friday at the Northwest Regional Airport in Terrace and  points races begin on Sunday and run through Monday.

Food vendors will be on-site and the Prince Rupert Auto Club will also be in attendance.
