PR: NSDA & Avenal Sand Drags AnnouncementNSDA and the Avenal Sand Drag board have come to an offical agreement. NSDA will be the sanctioning body for all ASDI races. ASDI will run the same rules and race formats as the NSDA. ASDI will continue with all classes that have been ran prior in Avenal. NSDA will adopt those classes ONLY for the May race in Avenal and not to be included in the points race. The classes in question are Pro 4, Sport 3 & 4. JR classes will now fall into the NSDA structure, any question on Jr's please call me. If you are teched at an NSDA event that will now be valid for ASDI events.
Editor's Notes | Nov '08BY: TOM BRAY
The month of October has been a tough one for the sand drag racing community. Our community was hit with the loss of two major figures in our sport. We lost Charlie Brown Sr. and Richard Montiel both within the month due to non-racing related circumstances. The term “legend” tends to be overused in our society these days, but these two personified this through their whole lives. Both were great individuals as people and fierce competitors behind the wheel.
