Editor's Notes | January '12

BY: TOM BRAY

tbjeeplead11.jpgNSDN is looking forward to a big year of sand drag racing coverage. It’s an exciting time as the new season is just around the corner. As a matter of fact, next weekend will be the first test session of 2012 at Dome Valley Raceway, where some new rides will be debuted and cars dialed in for the upcoming Season Opener. Keep an eye out for updates from the test day.

NSDN kicks off 2012 with a busy month of racing starting off with the Top Fuel Shootout at Dome Valley Raceway. This will also be the first race for the NSRA Quality Aircraft Care point series. It’s shaping up to be a great event with racers from across the country planning to head to Arizona February 2-5. Next up is the first trip for NSDN to the Dumont Dunes for the 40th Anniversary Las Vegas Jeep Club Jeep Jamboree. This event, featuring Hill Climbs on Saturday & Drags on Sunday, takes place February 18-19. I am certainly looking forward to seeing that event for the first time in person. After that is a trip back to Dome Valley Raceway for the March Madness event on March 3-4. Three big events in a five weekend span will be a lot of travel, but definitely should be a lot of fun. Stay tuned to NSDN for all of the latest from these events.
