“We race about once a month,” said Jeff Mamer. “The weather was good in Yuma, Arizona. We were right next to the Cocopah Casino and Resort and made it to the semi-finals out of sixteen cars. In NSDA we run like quarter-mile drag racing only we race 100 yards in the sand.”

Alan Mamer, 11 and Aaron, 14 are leading the points in NSDA Junior Dragster. “My 10-year-old daughter Amy is 5th in her class, and I’m 2nd in points overall,” said Mamer. “It’s great for all of us to race together. It’s all about the fun. My kids get a plaque, trophy or jacket if they win.”

Jeff Mamer started racing when he was a teenager and that’s also when he discovered K&N air filters. “I met the owner of K&N Engineering when I was 16 at the Glamis Dunes in California,” he said. “We were both racing and I needed a filter just like his. We talked and the rest is history. I started using K&N when I was a kid and now my children use K&N air filters. Paper element filters just don’t work in the sand. K&N air filters give me the air flow and filtration I need. Since we don’t race for the money it’s also nice to have a filter we can wash and reuse. K&N is very cost effective.”

The next sand drag race for the Mamer Family will be in Primm, Nevada.
