The 2016 edition of the SCSDA Mayhem at Soboba event is in the books after finishing up the weekend under sunny skies at the Soboba Casino in San Jacinto, CA. Jim Hammond was the big winner in the Top Alcohol category defeating multiple time class champion Gary Mink in the final round with a 2.48 ET. The ultra competitive Top Eliminator class featured many class champion Billy Morris up against first time TE finalist Jeff Liston. This was a great race with Billy scoring the hole shot win in a 3.00 to 2.97 decision. Robert Skidmore took the Fast Fours class victory defeating Art Cronin while Derek Balcunas singled to the Pro Mod Unlimited title. The Johnson brothers dominated the Pro Bracket classes on Sunday as Charlie scored the Pro 2 victory while Wes turned on the win light in the Pro 3 final round. Kevin Cambridge piloted his dad Bob’s Dragster to a weekend sweep as he took the Pro 1 victory to go with his Saturday Sportsman 1 class win. Taylor Holmes did a great riding job all day long to take the Motorcycle Pro 1 title while Caleb Mings got by veteran racer Mike Brock in a tough Motorcycle Pro 2 final round. Junior class winners on the day were: Conner Moore (Juniors), Dylan Gothard (Peewees), Luke Kemble (Junior Dragster), and Blaine Denunzio (Junior Dragster Mini’s).

The 2016 Avenal Sand Drags Spring Nationals lived up to its billing as a great show from start to finish for the Central California crowd. Each race at Avenal seems to get a bigger racer turnout and this race was no exception with over 200 entries competing over the three days of competition. Race Director Chachy Zavala along with his crew did an exceptional job putting cars down the track and getting the show done in a timely manner, making it extremely enjoyable for racers & spectators alike. Before we take a look at the action, NSDN wants to give a huge thank you to all of the Avenal Sand Drags crew for the A1 top notch hospitality all weekend for us. It makes it so much easier to bring the coverage to the masses right here on National Sand Drag News. Now let’s take a look at the top performers from this event.

NSDN would like to pass along our best wishes for a speedy recovery to Jeff Guillot. Jeff had a serious accident last weekend with his "Wild Thing" nitro burning 3-wheeler at his home track in Louisiana during the PSDA Gator Nationals. Per the latest update from the PSDA, Jeff has a long road ahead but is expected to fully recover (full update below). Jeff is the ATV World Record holder and many time event winner at races across the country as well as owner of the NE Louisiana Sand Drag Track & PSDA Board Member. On top of all that Jeff is a down to Earth great guy with a huge passion for sand drag racing. NSDN continues to send positive thoughts to Jeff and his family as he continues towards a full and speedy recovery.
