The 2016 SCSDA Opener at the Soboba Casino in San Jacinto, CA wrapped up on Sunday with some incredible 300’ sand drag racing action. Pedro Villa got the job done with the Express / Villa Racing Team Top Alcohol Dragster taking the TA class victory with a 2.67 in the final over Jimmy Depasse. Defending Top Eliminator class champion Billy Morris picked up where he left off last season with another final round win, this time getting by Paul Graham in the Excavator Blown Alcohol Buggy. Another defending champ Robert Skidmore also started off on the right foot taking the Fast Fours class win over John Cronin. Jimmy Depasse won the Pro Mod Unlimited class over Derek Balcunas. Mike Brock accomplished a major feat on Sunday as he swept both the Motorcycle Pro 1 & 2 categories. Mike doubled up with both of his Pro ATV’s, congrats to Mike & the team on that major accomplishment. Another racer with a big weekend was Kevin Williams, who scored Friday night’s Pro Gambler win then put it in the Winner’s Circle on Sunday in the Pro 3 class defeating Justin Adamson in the final round. Craig Durning (Pro 1) and Mike Williams Sr. (Pro 2) were both on their games Sunday & scored huge wins to start off the 2016 season for them. NSDN hopes everyone enjoyed the live streams throughout the weekend. There are links to the streams that you can watch listed below. Check back for more from this event in the coming days.

President’s Day Weekend at the Dumont Dunes near Baker, California was where all the action was in the sand world as Sand Wars 2016 took place. The Las Vegas Jeep Club ran the traditional Jamboree format for the 43rd time with Hill Climbs on Saturday along with Sand Drags on Sunday. The Jeeps were joined by the SXS Wars UTV’s for the first time as they competed in their own Hill Drags event on Saturday & joined in on the Sunday 300’ Sand Drag action. Chamber of commerce weather greeted all that attended with Sunny skies and temps around 75 all week. You couldn’t ask for better conditions to put on a great show in front of the massive Dumont Dunes crowd.

Dome Valley Raceway in Wellton, AZ will be holding a two day Test and Tune on April 9-10. For more info, contact Ernesto Juarez at 928-503-9675.
