The Estevan Drag Racing Association's second program of the year brought a variety of entries to the Estevan Airport.

The Estevan Drag Racing Association (EDRA) hosted the fourth annual Dennis Neelin Memorial race at the Estevan Airport on July 27.

Lyle Honeysett of Yellow Grass won the Quick 16 division with his 1972 Duster. Scott Meek of Estevan, driving a 1978 Camaro, was the runner-up.

In the A event, Troy Turner from Carlyle was the champion, driving a 1978 Nova. Matthew Walter of Lampman's 1984 Cutlass earned him second place.

Ken Spence from Estevan was the winner in the bike and sled division, as his 1985 Harley earned him the top spot. He beat Larry Elash of Estevan and his 1996 Buell in the final.

In the street vehicle class, Landon Mayuk from Estevan took top spot while driving a 2000 Mustang. The runner-up was Richard Voger of McTaggart with his 1970 Challenger.

Dominic Walchuk of Redcliff, Alberta, was first in the junior dragster class. He drove a 2006 Motivational model. Walchuk beat Damon Doerr from Bienfait in the final.

The EDRA holds a program each year to honour Neelin, a long-time drag racing competitor from Carlyle. Remington Walker was presented with the Dennis Neelin Memorial Award for Walker's dedication and passion for the sport.

Their final program of 2014 will be Sunday, August 24 at the Estevan Airport.
