Sand Drags in San Jacinto Valley

San Jacinto Valley Sand Drags

Fast cars and a fast track – that’s what Sand Drags in the San Jacinto Valley are all about.  Traveling 300 feet (that’s 100 yards) in just 2.5 seconds and reaching speeds of 170 mph, the rush of the Sand Drags is not only for the driver, but for the spectator as well.

Enjoy Sand Drags at San Jacinto ValleyWhat are Sand Drags?

Southern California Sand Drag Association (SCSDA) was established in 2011 to continue the sport that began in Southern California during the 1960’s.  The SCSDA comes back to the San Jacinto Valley for 2 final races of the season, October 4 – 6 and November 15 – 17, 2013.  The events are held at the Soboba’s Outdoor Event Arena in San Jacinto.

Sand Drag racing is a family oriented sport, similar to NHRA races (in dirt instead of on concrete) and promotes economical family involvement. Participants range from 5 years old to 75 years young.  Sand Drag racers are unique in that competitors will help each other and then race each other – all with a smile!  The competitive spirit is high but so is sportsmanship and friendship.
