Rain dampens Kitimat Hill Climb for drag racers

You can’t drag race in the rain and proof of that was this weekend, as disappointed organizers of the Kitimat Hill Climb had to cancel both the race day and the rainout day because of inclement weather.

You can’t drag race in the rain and proof of that was this weekend, as disappointed organizers of the Kitimat Hill Climb had to cancel both the race day and the rainout day because of inclement weather.

The event has been rained out for one day before, but there were always runs up the hill as weather cleared for the rainout day. This year Kitimat was socked in both days.

For drag racing fans there is nothing left to do but wait until August, as the Vanderhoof Drags were also cancelled earlier in the month. This race was scheduled for later in July.

August however, promises to be one of the best ever with “Hot August Nites” in Terrace, bringing in two Jet Funny cars July 31st and August 1st and the Houston Drags, August 19th-21st are bringing in ‘The NorthWest Doorslammers” and four six second ¼ mile cars.
