Like most people involved in the sport, I’m a
big fan of the Nostalgia in sand drag racing. Seeing where we came from and how
the sport has evolved is very interesting, not to mention there was some stuff
that was just plain awesome that raced in yesteryear. I came across a gem on
eBay just before Christmas. This was a copy of the first edition of SandPaper, touted

collection of sand drag memorabilia. Of course, I want to share this with the
rest of the sand drag community. Click “Read More” & scroll through various
pages of excellent sand drag racing nostalgia.
