NSDA Yuma Mar '08 Race Recap
The Cocopah Casino in Yuma, AZ hosted the third event of NSDA’s 2008 Season March 14-16. This event was highly anticipated as records had been eclipsed at the January race, and the question was would March be the same. The forecast was for warm temperatures and sun on Friday with increasing clouds and cooler weather rolling into the Yuma area as the weekend wore on. The meteorologists were actually right for once as the forecast was correct and cooler conditions throughout the weekend brought for some fast elimination action on Sunday. Continue on to see how the race played out class by class.
Editor's Notes | Apr '08
April is a big month for sand drag racing with typically the second biggest west coast sand drag race of the year in the NSDA Terrible’s Primm Valley Resorts Spring Nationals in Primm, NV. This race normally brings in racers from across the country to battle it out for the race wins. Also at stake are the current Top Fuel and Top Alcohol records held by Dennis Rieck and Dan Allen respectively. The surface in Primm has been known to see record setting E.T.’s, in particularly the fall of 2007 when Dennis Rieck lowered the current Top Fuel World Record to 2.327. At the last NSDA event in Yuma, both Rieck and Scott Whipple were able to get one leg of the record but were unable to back it up. It should be interesting to see who comes away with the record after Primm.
