Editor's Notes | Sept '12BY: TOM BRAY
This month’s column has been a challenge to put together as there is so much going on in the sand drag world as we head into one of the busiest stretches the sport has seen in recent history. I guess the easiest way to go is to start where I left off last month. Late August was pretty quiet in the sand drag world, but things would get rolling again with West Michigan Sand Dragway’s Labor Day Weekend event. This is the last big event of the year in MI, and had a solid turnout. There was close racing all weekend, especially on Sunday with big money Buggy Brawl, Big Bud, & Top Gun Shootout races. I was fortunate enough to win the Top Gun Shootout in my last race of the season against some amazing competition. It’s always a positive as a racer to end the year on a high note, and makes for a little more pleasant off season.

The weekend started off with a jam packed Test and Tune with many competitors testing for the Buggy Brawl as well as many duners trying their hand at the track. This all led to a regular Saturday WMSD race program, followed up by Sunday’s special event program. Let’s take a look at the weekend’s action.
