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.

Super Street VW Drag Racing: PRA '95, Ocean Street Video
Gary Berg came out of retirement to make an appearance at the Sacramento
Bugorama, in the famous Berg Super Street VW Beetle. He ran head on into
the ascending star, Andy Costello, and a serious duel ensued. Both drivers
pushed each other into new E.T. records, and a final confrontation. Other
Sacramento Super Street action included Candy Larsen of JCL Race Cars,
nearly beating the odds with a two-day-old engine in the right-hand drive
Ghia, that Shin Watanabe used to race.
These days you can find Candy running in the Powder Puff series, where the
competition can be plenty tough. If you ask her how difficult it was to
learn how to shift a right-hand drive race car, against the likes of Rafael
Vasquez, Andy Costello, Gary Berg, Chris Tool, etc., she'll probably tell
you that it was no big deal.
1995 marked the emergence of Shawn Geers as a serious player in the PRA Pro
ranks, and it could have also been the first time that Super Street Dave
Perkins ran the class.
Truck Fest 2013: Smokey Big Rigs Burnouts & Drag Racing Revealed
( http://www.TFLtruck.com ) When you think of a Big Rig Semi...you probably
don't immediately think of drag racing...or do you? This weekend at
Bandimere Speedway just outside of Denver, Colorado hundreds of Big Rig
Semi trucks lined up on the drag strip to see which one is the kind of the
mile high drag strip and which one is the fastest mile high pickup
dragster. Can a big rig run a sub 20 second quarter mile? You bet. Can a
big rig run a sub 15 mile....no problem. Can a Big Rig run a sub 10 second
time? You'll have to watch the video to find out. In another fun and
informative TFLtruck video we see what happens when the Big Rig Semi Trucks
line up behind the Christmas Tree.
