2009 April

lead.jpgThe 2009 version of the NSDA Primm Valley Resorts Spring Nationals lived up to expectations. A large car count along with tight racing showed why this event is highly regarded as one of the top sand drag racing events of the season. An example of the close racing was in the unbelievable Top Eliminator class with eight entries qualifying at 2.99 seconds or better, then to top it off after an awesome day of eliminations the final round was decided by a mere .005. That was all just in one class, across the board there was incredible action in all classes. Let’s take a look back at some of the more memorable racers and cars from the weekend through photos from our friends at C3 Productions – www.c3productions.net or www.myspace.com/c3productionsphotos.
