Virginia Sand Drag August Recap

We met Jeff Tomlin of Tomlin Racing Photography at the PTN East Coast Nationals at Newtown Dragway in Newtown, VA back in July. Jeff is not only a talented photographer, but a huge supporter of the sport. Living in Virginia, Jeff and his son Jesse attend a wide variety of sand and dirt drag events in their area, including some wild Top Fuel Motorcycle action. Here’s the first batch of photos and info sent us from August events in his region.

Jantzen Maynor is always one of the top bracket racers at any race he attends, and he proved this once again by taking the Bracket class at this Newtown Dragway event. This comes after he scored a runner-up finish in the PTN 3.95 Index class at the East Coast Nationals.

Top Fuel Blowout August 16

Mountaineer Motorcross and Dirt Drag Strip in August, WV was the host of the Top Fuel Blowout with many of the TF Motorcycles from the area doing battle on a 500’ track. Todd Leatherman was the big winner in the Top Fuel class defeating Randy Williamson in the final round. Take a look at some of the action through Tomlin Racing Photography photos.
