Annual Rumble on the Runway drag racing series returns to the local airport runway this weekend.

PORT McNEILL—Vancouver Island’s speed enthusiasts will return to the local airport runway this weekend for the final two runs of the annual Rumble on the Runway drag racing series.

Time trials kick off at 10 a.m. both Saturday and Sunday in the fifth and sixth points races of the series.

If time and weather conditions allow, the host North Island Timing Association will also attempt to complete the fourth race of the series, which was postponed due to rain last month.

Dragsters will compete in Sportsman, Pro and Super Pro classes for trophies and cash prizes, to be awarded to top points earners in a season wrap-up banquet.

Tickets are $5 per day, with children 12-under free.
