Maple Ridge and Pitt Meadows race drivers will be getting back on the track this weekend.

In the Closed Wheel 2 class, Jason Wesson of Pitt Meadows will race his 1990 Acura Integra, and Shawn Allen of Maple Ridge has entered his 1990 Mazda Miata.

In Novice Closed Wheel there are two Maple Ridge drivers: Brad Zimmerman will be racing a 1995 Nissan 240sx, and Alex Zuccaro a 1984 BMW E30.

In the Open Wheel 1 class, Pitt Meadows Driver Ray Stec will race a 1996 Van Diemen, sponsored by My Lovely Wife.

There will be racing at the track on Saturday and Sunday, with the second day featuring vintage racing.
