Long time west coast sand drag racer Clayton Record has passed away as result of a heart attack suffered last week. Clayton was a racer’s racer as he entered as many classes as possible at each race, and made as many laps as possible. He won many events over the years, and scored a solid runner-up finish at his last race in Albuquerque this past June. But even more than his accomplishments on the track, Clayton had fun at the races. He always had a smile on his face & was ready to chat about racing while sharing a laugh or two. Clayton was also an avid duner often cruising the dunes in California as well as making the haul to Idaho to play in the sand each year. The sand drag racing community will sorely miss Clayton Record. NSDN sends our condolences to the Record Family. Click “Read More” to view some great photos of Clayton over the years of racing.

Pro Truck Nationals (PTN) held its crown jewel event PTN Championship Weekend 2013 in late July in Mears, MI. PTN followed the same wildly successful format from the 2012 Championship Weekend in Kentucky, where a unique format was used to crown a Pro Truck class champion over the two nights of racing action. Pro Truck racers accumulated points over the course of action in Friday night’s Pro Shootout (Pro Truck vs. The World) as well as Saturday’s normal Pro Truck category. This made for two nights of some of the greatest racing on sand with racers from across the Midwest getting in on the action. Read on for the event recap with photos from Lonestar Graphics
