Rain...rain..and more rain! Rain was the word of the day for our scheduled Christmas Sand Drag on Dec 26th. All week long it came down hard...hard enough to turn half of the park into a muddy mess. Come Sunday morning, the day after-Christmas...even with one day of sun, it simply wasn't enough to dry everything out. With respect towards the Navy and the use of their road, George Grace III, decided to postpone the Christmas Sand Drags until Jan 2nd. And although January 2nd came without rain, it was still wet and dirty; it was just how we like it!
It wasn't just the rain that took it's toll at this event, but the month long holiday really took its toll on participants and drivers alike; both on their wallets and their time. In an effort to share some Christmas cheer, December's (now January!) Christmas Sand Drags was a double-purse event! In effect, every entry fee paid towards the purse was doubled by KRP & Paradise Lua owners, George & Jeanette Grace III! Much mahalos to them for continuing to support our racers and our spectators!
We'll have all of the photos of the event posted by Saturday, including the winners receiving their purses at our official Facebook page so check it out! Like us if you haven't!
Congratulations to our winners! For final results, please click the following link or go to the Motorsports > Sand Drags > Results > 2010 > December section on the Navigation above!
For those of you that were unable to make it, we hope that you'll join us for our January 30th, 2011 event...the first official season Test N' Tune FOR POINTS! These points will be tallied up at the end of the year for a shot at the overall Points Championship, so its important to attend all of the Quarterly Test N' Tunes! The mandatory Driver's Meeting for this event is Jan 19th at The Sandbox on Sand Island!
We'll also be giving away a Flat Screen TV to a lucky spectator plus even more prize give-aways so make sure you come out and join the fun!
In addition to doubling the winning purses for 1st, 2nd, & 3rd, KRP also gave tons of sponsored prizes from 4Wheel Parts, Montgomery Motors, and our good friends at Aloha Automotive Distributing! These companies generously donated tons of prizes for our valued spectators, so we invite you all to please check out their stores! We support those who support us, and we hope that you will join us! A big mahalo to Island 98.5 for help with advertising!

We're very happy to present the first SCCA RallyCross video filmed by KRP! For those of you that don't know, SCCA RallyCross is a very fun and safe way to test and improve your offroad driver skills in your own personal vehicle against the clock. The timed course is wide and free of obstructions and ran on mixed terrain.
SCCA RallyCross is the third off-road event held at Kalaeloa Raceway Park. It's cheap and easy to run, so if you've got a hunger for some serious off-roading, then come out to our next RallyCross in February and check it out! For now, enjoy this short video and see all the fun they're having!
