Zero to100 miles an hour in only 500 feet. That is what you

track next to the runway. Registration is from 8AM to 10Am and racing is scheduled
to start at 11:00.
The SSRA sanctions 10
events a year throughout Alberta and Saskatchewan with racers competing for event

The Ridge Riders
would like to thank the Town of Vermilion and Vermilion Flying Club for
allowing this to happen at the airport and Vermilion Provincial Park for the
use of a groomer.
