Sold Out Productions is sad to inform racers and
fans that due to unforeseen circumstances, Sold Out Productions has cancelled
all 4 races at Dome Valley Raceway for the 2009 racing season. I personally
apologize for any inconvenience this has caused to the racers, fans, and media.

future sand drag racing events in the future at another venue.

It’s hard to believe that the 2008 sand drag racing season has come to an end.
It seems like just yesterday that NSDN was heading to Yuma for the Season Opener in January. It’s
amazing how time flies when you are having fun. The 2008 season saw NSDN
provide our on-site Daily Race Coverage at nine events in five states. It was a
