Nostalgia: SandPaper Aug 1977

lead.jpgLike most people involved in the sport, I’m a big fan of the Nostalgia in sand drag racing. Seeing where we came from and how the sport has evolved is very interesting, not to mention there was some stuff that was just plain awesome that raced in yesteryear. I came across a gem on eBay just before Christmas. This was a copy of the first edition of SandPaper, touted as “The Sand Racers Hotline” and the Official Voice of NSCA. At the end of the auction, I would emerge victorious & this would end up in my vast collection of sand drag memorabilia. Of course, I want to share this with the rest of the sand drag community. Click “Read More” & scroll through various pages of excellent sand drag racing nostalgia.

According to the article, Butch won his first FC event at Santa Maria in this car defeating Jim DePasse (current driver of Ron "Otis" Simpson's Blown Jeep) for the eliminator win.
