NSDN Daily Race Coverage - Avenal April '18
The 2018 Avenal Sand Drags Spring Nationals got underway on Friday under sunny skies with a strong turnout of racers participating in 300’ sand drag racing. Jim Hammond put down quick time of the day in Top Alcohol recording an excellent 2.44/135MPH pass. Vickie Hall’s first trip to Avenal got off to a great start as she leads Day 1 qualifying in Top Eliminator with a 2.953 ET on the 2.95 class index. The always entertaining 3.95 Index class saw Kevin Williams put his Jeep in the Winner’s Circle defeating Wes Johnson on a hole shot in the final round 4.008 to 4.006. The Friday Pro Gambler was a repeat final of last month’s SCSDA event as Charlie Johnson and Kenny Hayes squared off, but this time around it was Johnson scoring the win in an incredibly close race. DJ Noerr topped a tough Motorcycle Gambler class field defeating Tessa Nunes in the final round. More great racing action is on tap Saturday with the final rounds of heads-up qualifying as well as Pro Gambler & Sportsman class eliminations.
SCSDA Soboba Mar '18 Race RecapThe Soboba Casino in San Jacinto, CA played host to the 2018 SCSDA March Madness event. The late March weather was unseasonably cool for Southern California with high temps around 60 creating excellent horsepower weather and leading to some incredibly quick ET’s and high MPH’s. 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.
