Nostalgia: Sandrag Mag, Part 1

lead1.jpgHere comes the next round in NSDN’s Nostalgia series. A huge thank you goes out to Keith Ahart for letting me go through a few copies of SANDRAG Magazine from the 1980-1981 periods in time. Over the next few weeks, we’ll go through a few installments of photos & race info from this magazine, which was the official publication of the American Sand Racing Association on the west coast. If you have any material, you would like to submit, feel free to contact me at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. to set this up. Enjoy!
