Editor's Notes | January '12

BY: TOM BRAY

tbjeeplead11.jpgNSDN is looking forward to a big year of sand drag racing coverage. It’s an exciting time as the new season is just around the corner. As a matter of fact, next weekend will be the first test session of 2012 at Dome Valley Raceway, where some new rides will be debuted and cars dialed in for the upcoming Season Opener. Keep an eye out for updates from the test day.

NSDN kicks off 2012 with a busy month of racing starting off with the Top Fuel Shootout at Dome Valley Raceway. This will also be the first race for the NSRA Quality Aircraft Care point series. It’s shaping up to be a great event with racers from across the country planning to head to Arizona February 2-5. Next up is the first trip for NSDN to the Dumont Dunes for the 40th Anniversary Las Vegas Jeep Club Jeep Jamboree. This event, featuring Hill Climbs on Saturday & Drags on Sunday, takes place February 18-19. I am certainly looking forward to seeing that event for the first time in person. After that is a trip back to Dome Valley Raceway for the March Madness event on March 3-4. Three big events in a five weekend span will be a lot of travel, but definitely should be a lot of fun. Stay tuned to NSDN for all of the latest from these events.

Another big thing NSDN is proud of heading into the 2012 season is being partners in the Dome Valley Raceway & Mid-America point’s series. The Mid America Sand Drag Series should be a great deal with 4 point races between Atoka Motorsports Park & Thunder Valley Sand Drags. Three events comprise the Dome Valley Raceway track point series. These three events will be the Swag Promotions races in February, March, & October. NSDN will also be consulting on the points & covering the NSRA Quality Aircraft Care Sand Drag Racing series events. It will certainly be a great year working hand in hand with these great groups.

As you have probably noticed, NSDN has several new sponsors on the Advertisers sidebar. I want to thank everyone that has taken advantage of this offer. Advertising on NSDN is very affordable with the cost being just $300/year to come on board with NSDN. Your business and/or race team's logo will appear on the side bar & link to a page with your info. This is a great way to let the world know about your race team and/or business.

NSDN is continuing our popular Entry List feature heading into each NSDN Daily Race Coverage event. We are going to try to start getting info for this list three weeks or so before each race. So, with that being said, if you are racing at the 2012 Top Fuel Shootout @ Dome Valley Raceway February 3-5, let us know. E-mail your name, car #, and class or classes to This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.. We will also have access to the pre-registration data from this race, so if you have sent this in to the event organizer you will be automatically added.

This is shaping up to be another great year of sand drag racing. You know where to find all of the latest news, right here on NSDN.

Until next month,
