The 2017 SCSDA Season Opener is in the books after an incredible day of eliminations at the Soboba Casino in San Jacinto, CA. Jake Morton got the job done in the Top Alcohol final recording a 2.53 to defeat #1 qualifier Jim Hammond’s 2.56 in a great wheel-to-wheel battle. The Top Eliminator final saw #1 qualifier Billy Morris use a great .069 RT and 3.01 ET to defeat Paul Graham’s great 2.98. The story of the weekend was Michigan’s Adam Roe making the cross-country trip to sweep the weekend in the Fast Fours class. Roe qualified #1, set the new Fast Fours World Record with a 2.705 ET, and won the race in a great final round with Robert Skidmore 2.75 to 2.79. Derek Balcunas emerged the winner of the Pro Mod Unlimited class recording a 3.08 ET to defeat Dave Huffman in the final round. Moises Roano nearly doubled up on Sunday as he piloted his beautiful Ford Truck to the Pro 2 class victory before earning a runner-up finish in the Pro 3 class to Forrest Hudson. Kevin Cambridge made it 2-for-2 in the Pro 1 class while driving his dad Bob’s Dragster. Kevin scored the final round win over Craig Durning. Joey Weaver made it a double-up weekend with the Motorcycle Pro 1 class title to go with his MS1 win from Saturday. Caleb Mings got the job done in Motorcycle Pro 2 defeating the always tough Mark Ratliff in the final round. Junior class winners on Sunday included Ryan Rodriguez (Juniors), Ella Burch (Peewees), Troy Adamson (Junior Dragster Advanced), and Taylor Cameron (Mini Junior Dragster). *Note: Highlight Videos & Run Sheets are NOW posted!!*

Kicking off its 11th season of sand drag racing coverage, NSDN will travel to the Soboba Casino in San Jacinto, CA for SCSDA’s Season Opener over the last weekend in January. Plans are also in place for NSDN to cover the March and September SCSDA events. NSDN will return to Avenal Sand Drags in Avenal, CA to cover both of their 2017 events on the traditional April & October dates. 2017 will mark NSDN’s 4th trip to the Dumont Dunes in February (President’s Day Weekend) for coverage of the Las Vegas Jeep Club Sand Drags & Hill Climbs event. None of this would be possible without the great support of our great sponsors & amazing track/promoter partners. Coverage sponsorship is in place for each of these events, but there are still openings available if your company or race team would like to come on board. NSDN is also open to adding more events to the 2017 coverage schedule, depending on sponsorship & date availability. Be sure to contact This email address is being protected from spambots.
