The 2007 WMSD race season finished up with its point series finale on September 22. Rich Wood was able to hang on to take the Pro Point Series title by staying ahead of hard charging second place finisher Randi Vsetula with a win at the last race of the season. Rich wasn't as fortunate in his try to take both point series titles as he went out in round one of ATV handing the Sportsman Point Series win to Tom Bray, who took home the title for the third time. Jordan Lirones won the Junior Dragster Point Series in dominating fashion for the third season in a row. Cody Turnock ended up as the Junior ATV champion. The tightest point series battle was in the Mighty Midgets category as the top three competitors were separated by just one point heading in. Leaders heading into the race John DeBoer and Kelsey Ambs both went out in round one and were passed by Joshua Rammacher, who made it to round to making Rammacher the 2007 Mighty Midget Point Series champion.

What “drives” you??
Think about it, what is it that “drives” you at the race track? Is it the thrill of winning a round? Is it getting a check at the end of the night? Is it a time to relax amid the chaos that is your day to day life? Is it an adrenaline rush just going down the track? Is it the honor and prestige of winning a certain event and the recognition that comes with it? Is it something that no matter how you try to describe it to someone that has never made a pass down the drag strip, you find while every adjective seems to apply, no one word can really describe how it feels?

Editor's Notes | September '07BY: TOM BRAY
It has only been a couple weeks since the last issue of NSDN, however some great racing has went down in that short period of time. Gravelrama was once again one of the largest events of the season east of the Mississippi, while WMSD put on a great two-day show on Labor Day Weekend. The racing was exceptional, and makes us look forward to the busy month of September with huge events going on all across the country.
Dome Valley August 25 Test and Tune RecapDome Valley Raceway hosted their monthly Test and Tune on August 25 playing host to a handful of TE cars, Pro cars and bikes, as well as some junior racers. Low E.T. of the event was set by Mike Erwin with a 3.153 in his blown Chevy-powered TE class dragster. Tiffany Januik debuted her new TE class altered turning a best run of 3.157. Israel Quintero brought his small block-powered TE dragster up from Mexico and ran a best E.T. of 3.208. Art Cronin rounded out the TE cars working the bugs out of his dragster.
Midwestern Scene | September '07BY: MIKE ELLINGTON
We all know that sand drag racing can best be described as a family sport. We go to the races as a family. We camp at the track together as families. Our children compete in Jr. Dragsters and ATVs, and then play together after their racing is completed. We’ve all seen our sport on TV, and whichever driver is interviewed, they always seem to say they compete in sand drag racing because it is a family sport.
