Despite the pouring rain earlier this afternoon, volunteers and Municipal staff are busy erecting fences, jersey barriers and other things getting the Wawa Airport ready for the 5th Annual Northern Nationals tomorrow.
The rain is supposed to let up this afternoon, and it is a 40% chance of precipitation at 6 p.m. when the Parade is scheduled. Drivers and other parade participants will travel down Broadway Avenue & Mission Road to the Wawa Motor Inn where a meet & greet is planned.
Racing begins Friday at 3 p.m. This year at dusk spectators will be treated to a run down the tracks by the Chicago Rush Jet Car, Chevy Rebellion Wheelstander, and Diesel Dave. The Wawa Volunteer Fire Department will be launching their fireworks at end of the last run. Get ready for a great weekend of racing and get your tickets.
