A pair of Valley boys drag racing for Sonoma Raceway’s high school class team recently faced a tough field of challenging opponents from four states in the NHRA Summit Race Series Pacific Division ET Finals at the Las Vegas Speedway and drove their way right up the leaderboard and into the finals.

Sonoma Valley High School 2013 graduates Mike Norrbom and Cody Oaks, eliminated all their fellow racing foes en route to reaching the finals, where they ended up dragging against each other for the title.

Inching across the finish line for the victory was Norrbom, who nipped runner-up teammate Oaks to become the NHRA Pacific Division High School champion for the 2013 season.
