Dragsters were in Samoa Saturday for the Summit Series Race featuring a special Mustang Class. There was a big turnout both with local and out of town drivers. All the divisions took to the Samoa Drag Strip. There were some very fast and loud cars doing their thing. If you couldn’t make it out to the track, there is another full day of racing planned Sunday with the NHRA King of the Track. Gates open at 7:30 with time trials beginning 9:30 in the morning.
