VW drag racing: Tar Babe, Underdog, Dyno-Soar, Hater Maker, BUG-IN 35
VW drag racing passes, including Jon Schweers in the former Dan Lawson CE
notchback, debut of the VW Paradise Hater Maker VW Pro Mod beetle(?), with
Kris Lauffer behind the wheel, making TNT passes, and Mike Cruz in the
insane Nitrous-powered VW single cab
bus. Is this the fastest Volkswagen bus on the planet? He's running deep
into the 11's, with lots left.
Trick or Cheat takes the wheelstand title of the event, with Larry Hanson
getting air coming out of the waterbox. R.I.P. Les Navales, from the Trick
or Cheat team.
Jesse Hardin also makes a pass, in the blue VW Der Renn Kafer Cup bug, with
Shawn Geers crewing.
This VW drag racing video wraps up with the Fleming and Aronson Tar Babe,
Underdog, and Dean Lowry D.D.S. Dyno-Soar cars all squaring off
against each other. These VW bugs have been meticulously restored, but
mechanical problems made it rather anti-climatic. Ultimately, it was Lee
Leighton, at 80 years old, who really put the hammer down in this VW
nostalgia drag racing segment.
