Editor's Notes | Feb '09

tbjeeplead.jpgThe 2009 sand drag racing season is off to a fast start, literally. The Dome Valley Raceway Season Starter event saw some great passes, including a new track record run of 2.410 by Geoff Gill in the Gill Bettencourt Motorsports Top Fueler. Geoff went on to win the class over Dennis Rieck, who was also in the 2.4 zone. One of the bigger stories of the event was Matt Ludlow in the Coldwater Kid Top Fuel car breaking into the 2.4 range with a 2.47. The Top Fuel class appears stronger than ever. Beyond that, there was some great Top Eliminator and bracket class racing at this event. If this is any indication of what lies ahead in 2009, we are in for a great season.

As we head into February, we near the beginning of the 2009 NSDA season. The NSDA Season Opener kicks off February 13-15 in Yuma, AZ. With the record setting Yuma track surface and great February air, this could be a race shattering the record books. Of course all of the top teams will be locked and loaded, going for not only records but the race win and a leg up on the season long point race. NSDN will be on site with Daily Race Coverage from this event start on Friday, February 13.

We are looking forward to kicking off our 2009 NSDN Daily Race Coverage season this month. Stays tuned, and hang on; this is going to be a great season of sand drag racing.
