The 2007 sand drag racing season has already kicked off and looks to be a record setting season for the sport. NSDA’s season opener at the Soboba Casino was a massive event with nearly 300 racers competing and putting on a fantastic show. NSDN readers voted for Scott Whipple’s dominating Top Fuel victory as the most impressive performance of the event. Scott (pictured right) and the Canidae team was the model of consistency running 2.43, 2.43, and 2.44 in qualifying followed up by 2.51 and 2.48 in eliminations. Scott looks like he will be a hard man to beat in ’07, but there’s no doubt the rest of the Top Fuel class will be gunning for him throughout the season.
I hope everyone enjoyed NSDN’s daily race coverage of the NSDA season opener. We are currently putting together our 2007 race coverage schedule. If you are interested in having us cover one of your 2007 races or looking to sponsor any of the daily race coverage’s, be sure to email us to discuss options.
This month’s issue contains our normal monthly columnists as well as features on the Allen Racing team and Rick Morris’ Heavy Metal Racing. Send us an email if you would like your car or team featured in a future issue of NSDN. We plan on the features section becoming a bigger section showcasing the top racers in the sport.
NSDN’s next race coverage will be at the NSDA’s March Soboba Casino event. Keep an eye out for some late additions to this issue of NSDN, plus some potentially major announcements in the next couple weeks. In the meantime, be sure to let your local promoters/associations know about NSDN so that they can submit news from your local track to this site.
Until next month…
