Big rig drag race, truck show a blast at Winterport Dragway
Winterport — Big things hit the strip Saturday, Sept. 7 at Winterport Dragway.
With clear skies and cooler, fall-like temperatures, Tyler's Garage Big Rig Drag Race and Truck Show raced down the track in a special event, sponsored by Tyler's Garage of Winterport.
The big rig event was an idea born from the desire to bring more people to the dragway and spark interest in the local strip.
The one day event ran all day with gates opening early and racing running until dark.

Big Rig Race — 1, Nick Davis, Canaan; and 2, Percy Craford, West Enfield.
Heavy Haulers — 1, Jon Canty, West Gardiner; and 2, Ben Wilson, Ellsworth.
Super Diesel — 1, Drew Eaton, Deer Isle; and 2, Canty, West Gardiner.
