The Southern California Sand Drag Association (SCSDA) held their third event of the 2012 season over the last weekend of September. This event was also the fifth of eight races in the 2012 NSRA Quality Aircraft Care Sand Drag Series. Sunny skies and warm weather greeted racers from across the Southwest U.S. for this great battle in So Cal.

The Mid-America Sand Drag Series made its third stop of the 2012 season in late September. This event would be the Show-Me Fall Nationals at Thunder Valley Sand Drags in Grain Valley, MO. Great fall weather greeted racers with cool air setting the stage for fast times and hot competition. Let’s take a look at the action from this event.


As you can imagine, the past couple months have been very busy for NSDN. It was an unprecedented run of events with traveling to events five weekends in a row with the final tally being six events in a seven week span. By the end, the traveling certainly took its toll, but it was all worth it in the end to see some of the best sand drag racing in the history of the sport. Ultimately, NSDN is a little behind in the race recap department, but it is in the process of catching up & will post them as they get completed.
