Pro Stock VW drag racing: PRA '94
This is racing action from the PRA '94 videotape; the Pro Stock class. The
drag racing action starts off with passes from the 1993 season, when Ron
Lummus Racing and the Mike Stewin/JayCee crew were slugging it out in the
points title chase. The rivalry continued into 1994, but with Jack
Sacchette doing the driving against RLR. Most of the Pro Stock participants
were experienced drivers; Super Street was the place where you cut your
teeth on heads-up VW drag racing.
One of the most experienced drivers on the circuit was Larry Kelley. He had
been racing Volkswagens back in the '60's, and when the import drag racing
scene blew up in the mid '90's, both he and his son Scott Kelley hit it big
time. They are still doing it in 2015, this time with the NHRA:
Ray Medrano ran his car in this all-motor PRA Pro Stock class, and shortly
thereafter put Nitrous to it. He would
drive up from L.A. to the Sacramento Bugorama, with a small dog for a crew
chief. He would run big numbers, then pack the dog and the car up, and
drive home. These days you'll probably find him racing Super Comp at
The PRA Pro Stock VW drag racing class was a pounds-per-cubic-inch, tube
chassis class. Perhaps it could be said that the halcyon days of the class
were in the early '90's, but regardless of the turnout, some people
considered it to be the pinnacle of VW drag racing.

BackyardBuild Summer 2012 Turbo VW Bug preview.mpg
Here is a preview of how the car sits now, summer 2012. I have about 95% of
the bodywork done and have coated everything with 2 layers of black epoxy
primer. Lots more tune up has yielded a good running late model classic VW
beetle. As you can see I have a bunch of work left to do on the interior,
but all the gauges and lighting function. To beef everything up on the
3SGTE engine I had to utilize an aftermarket ECU, I chose the Vi-Pec. The
last part of the video shows what this setup can do. She's fast...
