Sunday February 19, 2012 well, we had another successful event at Thunder on the Beach race track watching the Sand Drags. We found lots of folks in the Pits and it was early in the day. Over 30 participants were already there and more were coming in. There was a diversified group of racers ranging from alcohol burning dragsters to rather calm looking machines you might see on the streets.

Entrants were from CA, AZ, San Luis, Caborca and other parts of Sonora. The number of racers from the US was reduced due to a big race at Firebird Raceway outside of Phoenix.

Early entrants were “revving up” and ready to go. We talked with Eddie from San Luis. Sitting in his shinny orange jeep he had just finished building, he was anxious to get out on the track and try it out. We watched him run once and he performed very well. I am sure he is pleased with his work!

The Sand Drags is always a popular event. We are looking forward to upcoming events, Monster trucks in March, a two day Desert race event April 13, and a Dirty Beach Mud Run on May 26. Watch for additional information in the Rocky Point Times or check out Thunder on the Beach web site at
