OSOYOOS, BC – The time has come, for all the kids who’ve been good throughout the winter and worked on their drag cars, to head out to the Osoyoos airport and have some fun. Though Mother Nature seems to be taking her sweet time in gearing spring up this year, there is a fun-loving bunch of racers who have done some gearing up of their own, and are ready to let it rip, with hopes of no slow starts.
