The 2015 edition of the Avenal Sand Drags Fall Nationals in Avenal, CA is in the books after a great Sunday of eliminations. All eyes were glued on the track for the much anticipated Top Alcohol final round. Unfortunately it was an anti-climatic battle as top qualifier Jake Morton broke a rear end right off the line after a .044 to .077 starting line advantage and Gary Mink went on to the Winner’s Circle for the second weekend in a row with a 2.52. Another back-to-back weekend winner was Paul Taylor who ran a pair of 2.99’s in Top Eliminator action on Sunday to take home the top prize. The Jeep dominance of the bracket classes at Avenal continued on Sunday with Kenny Hayes (Pro 1), Mike Williams Sr. (Pro 2) and Justin Adamson (Pro 3) all taking wins. Austin Rego completed a weekend sweep as he backed up his Saturday MS1 win with the Sunday Motorcycle Pro 1 victory. Robby Stancliff also had a great Sunday as he won the Motorcycle Pro 2 class along with a semi-final finish in MP1. Junior class winners on the day were Drake Montgomery (Juniors), Jayden Pena (Intermediate), and Sky Chaffin (Youth). **Run Sheets are now posted from this event.**

Sunday was another great day of sand drag racing to finish off the SCSDA Racin’ For A Cure event at the San Bernardino County Fairgrounds in Victorville, CA. Another World Record was broken as Derek Balcunas piloting the Larry Minor Motorsports Jeep carded a 2.754 setting the A/Pro Jeep ET record en route to the Pro Mod Unlimited class win. Gary Mink and his “Bad to the Bone” hot rod came out on the winning end of an extremely close Top Alcohol class final round nipping Jake Morton at the stripe. Another extremely close battle saw Paul Taylor emerge victorious in the Top Eliminator final reaching the finish line first by just three-thousandths (.003) of a second. MPC Racing’s Mark Ratliff nearly finished off an astonishing double double up weekend as he won two classes on Saturday, then went on to with the Motorcycle Pro 1 category on Sunday before turning on the red light in Motorcycle Pro 2 handing the win to Randy Mings. Craig Durning was flat out on his game on Sunday as he piloted “Eugene the Jeep” to the Pro 1 victory defeating Michigan racer Nick Beaudoin in the final round. Other winners on the day included Joe Simeone (Pro 2), Charlie Johnson (Pro 3), Luz Malan (Powderpuff Cars), Heather Taylor (Powderpuff ATV), Troy Adamson (Junior Dragster), Derek  Partida (Juniors), and Braydon Myers (Peewees). **Sunday Videos and Run Sheets are now posted.**
