Wolfpack Hustle 6th Street Drag Race to Round Off the Unified Title Series
Competitors have been accumulating points since the Crash Race in March, and the race will be the decider, worth the most (30 points) of the three. Jo Celso and Evan Stade are at the top of leader board currently, but there are still potentially 10 women and 19 men that have a chance at taking the first Unified Series title.
This year the race will take place on the 6th Street Bridge rather than within the 2nd Street tunnel, but will retain its distance of 1,000 feet. The Drag Race has alternated between these two iconic locations over the years.
“I chose the bridge because it’s going to get torn down in a few years and replaced,” says Ward. “I also chose the bridge because the view is absolutely beautiful and we raced their in 2007. No permits of course, back then. We were so cavalier.”
