Another exciting season of fast door car drag racing in the North West

2018 WDRL Schedule is out and some Class changes

2018 is looking a little different for the Western Drag Racing League.  The full schedule is out for the season, but it is missing three classes that were part of the series from day one.

Due to a lack of car count and memberships to a few of the classes, the WDRL Director Rome Awde has made the decision to drop a few classes in support of the others, as well as local and regional series that race at the tracks the WDRL races at.

RH Racecars Top Sportsman has been dropped as the membership and car counts have been down over the three years since they were included in the calendar.  The Edmonton areas’ Top Eliminator class includes fast Top Sportsman and Top Dragster classes combined into one successful series.  This series has been a staple of fast bracket drag racing in the Edmonton area and the WDRL Top Sportsman category had to compete for car counts.  Also, the Mission Raceway Door Slammers class also was competing with the WDRL Top Sportsman class as well as the NW Division 6 NHRA Points series includes Top Sportsman.

Open Comp was a great quarter-mile class that provided a little different format than regular bracket class racing.  With the start of a new Open 1/8 mile series at Castrol Raceway, it was decided to help that new series get started by not competing for car counts.  The same goes for Outlaw 8.5.  The class never saw more than 6 cars per race day, and this class could easily fold into Outlaw 275 to help bolster that class up.

The 2018 lighter WDRL includes the Premier Belair Power Pro Modified Series, TCI Automotive Outlaw 10.5 and the FAST EFI Outlaw 275 classes moving forward.
