Miramichi Dragway will be having their work party this coming Saturday, May 9th. A few things need to get done for the start up for the High School Challenge and Test & Tune that will be held May 16th and 17th. Everyone is certainly welcome to come help out. We certainly hope many of our NBDRA members will be able to find a bit of time to lend a helping hand. Usually people start showing up around 8am.
