NSDN Daily Race Coverage - Avenal April '18
The 2018 Avenal Sand Drags Spring Nationals continued on Day Two with plenty of great 300’ sand drag racing action. The Top Alcohol class saw no change in the qualifying order as Jim Hammond stayed atop the list with his 2.44 from Friday, while Jake Morton had the Best Run of both Saturday qualifying sessions. The Top Eliminator class also didn’t see much change in the order as Vickie Hall stayed atop the list with her 2.953 from Friday. Vickie also had the Best run of Q3 with a 2.961 while Paul Taylor was the best of Q4 with a 2.959 to move him into the #3 qualifying position. Kevin Williams is having quite a weekend with his Orange Larry Minor Motorsports-built Jeep as he backed up his Friday night 3.95 Index victory with the Saturday Pro Gambler class title defeating Grant Fraysier in the final round. Another great story was Anthony Gazzeny in his second ever race winning the Sportsman 1 class in his Grandpa Mike’s Dragster. Other big winners in today’s Sportsman bracket class action were Paul May (Sportsman 2), Mathew Wilson (Sportsman 3), Joey Weaver (Motorcycle Sportsman 1) and Dylan Holmes (Motorcycle Sportsman 2). Racing action wraps up on Sunday with Eliminations in all remaining classes.

This also served as Race 2 of 5 in the 2018 California Sand Drag Challenge series. The points race is starting to take shape as the series heads to Avenal for Race 3 in April. Let’s go through the rundown of top performers from this event.
