We would like to thank each and every one of you that were able to come out and support this event! We had a good turnout and will be able to continue to do it for the future and hopefully make it one of the events to attend in its area. Date for 2011 is Sept 11th.
    This was the largest turnout of racers we have had all year at our events! Show car turnout was good and the spectator count was way up from the past two years despite the weather that morning. Special thanks go out to all those folks that helped with promoting the event in any way possible, shows, shops, around town, etc. If it hadn’t been for the VW Community helping us out, we wouldn’t be going back. That is what it is all about!
    Special thanks go to the following for their help in supporting the event Mark Morris, Howard Creps, The Fresh Air VW Club, North Coast VW Drag Racing Association, Regina Mitchell. We couldn’t have done it without all of you, our sponsors and each and every person that attended the event! Thank you AGAIN and we hope to see you on Sept 11, 2011.
   If any of you have any questions or comments about the event or are interested in sponsoring it for 2011, please give us a call or email.
