The Southern California Sand Drag Association (SCSDA) is currently working hard towards returning to action in the near future. After splitting ties with the Soboba Casino at the end of the 2013 season, the SCSDA has been actively searching for a new venue to hold sand drag races in Southern California . Despite not having a deal 100% locked down at the moment, the SCSDA is making great progress on a weekly basis & is looking forward to a bright future of sand drags in the area. SCSDA leadership would like to thank all of the racers, crew, and family for support in this time of transition. Once news is ready to release and everything is fit for print, you will find the announcement on SCSDA’s home page at http://www.socalsanddrags.com/ and also right here on NSDN.
Avenal Track Improvements Underway
Avenal Sand Drags in Avenal, CA is currently undergoing a massive track surface improvement project for the 2014 race season. The plan is remove the existing water sensitive track surface & replace it with a lighter soil that will be more forgiving while allowing for optimal traction. As you can see in the photos posted, the current track soil is in the process of being moved off. Not only will the soil be different, but the track prep equipment will be different to provide a quicker show & more consistent surface. This is a huge undertaking and the Avenal Sand Drags crew would like to thank all who have donated or chipped in to this project. They will keep us updated here on NSDN as the project continues leading up to the Avenal Sand Drags Opener on April 26-27. Click "Read More" to view photos.
