Editor's Notes | July '10BY: TOM BRAY
The last two months have been quite a ride for NSDN. You know when “The Editor” misses his column for a month that it’s been hectic. I started out in mid May in
Heading into June, NSDN enjoyed a weekend off before heading to
So, now here I sit, during an off weekend on the second weekend of July. 4th of July Weekend, NSDN was at our home track, West Michigan Sand Dragway in
So, anyways, to recap the travels of NSDN over the last eight weeks; six races, five states, lots of hotel rooms, a 12-egg Omelet (yes, 12 EGGS at an Iron Skillet restaurant along the highway, heading from Cleves), and a countless number of miles (road & air). Now, we head into a calmer part of the season. NSDN will next be back at WMSD for the U.S. Sand Nationals/PTN Race 3, July 23-24. This has all the makings of another epic Sand Nationals, as this historic race turns another chapter, intensified by the great PTN point’s battles heading down the stretch of the season.
On the west coast front, I received an interesting PR from the AZ Top Fuel Group & Swag Racing announcing a great event at Dome Valley Raceway slated for January 2011. Be sure to check out the details of this event on our front page. The thing that caught my eye was the addition of the Pro Outlaw FE class at this race. It’s great to see other areas of the country looking at successful programs and introducing these into their own race programs. I’m sure the west coast will benefit from this new heads-up class. NSDN will definitely be on-site with race coverage from this Season Opening race in 2011.
Thanks to all of the readers that have supported NSDN. I really appreciate the e-mails and words of encouragement at the race tracks. The page view numbers just keep on increasing, as they have every year since NSDN came online. Thank you, everyone! Stick with us for all of the latest news…
