    Tomorrow at our local drag strip -Western Colorado dragway 115 32rd.

    Sounds like there is going to be a big turn out. A wedding at noon. Pro and sportsman classes with decent pay-outsโ€ฆI heard $700.

    I’m going to race my 1600cc 63 beetle in the sportsman class…see if I can win with a 23 second quarter mile. ๐Ÿ™‚

    Looks like it was a great time. I agree with Audrey that it cool that there are so many different groups within the larger air cooled VW family. About the only fraction I don’t see much of around here are the kit car folks. Anyone else out there in the KCWย  circle working on one ? Might be fun if there could be a few of these show up at next years races ?

    11:00 and 10:50 I think. Plug wire fell off the first time, and not sure on the second. He parked it after that, said โ€œnot running rightโ€.

    Eric also torched a head/cylinder on his gold dune buggy Friday night.

    No fun. Fast cars are expensive.
