This year's event is scheduled for Saturday, May 17th from gates open at 6:00 P.M. 'til Midnight. The event will be held again at Albuquerque National Dragway, Mesa del Sol.
So-Low VW club will be hosting a Show-and-Shine, Swap Meet, and Vendor Display area at the track at the same time. All VW clubs and enthusiasts are invited and the turnout is expected to be even better than last year. The cost to show, swap and vend and/or spectate is $10 per person at the gate. If you are planning on participating (not just spectating) in this event, please contact the So-Low Club representative (Frankie) thru Face Book or message me here for some specifics about settup time, etc.
The Mountain States VW Racers Association will be hosting the races again this year. Universal Technical Institute is the headline sponsor for this event and several other great sponsors have contributed to making this event happen again. They are listed on the flyer below.

The cost to race will be $20 at the gate and $40 at the MSVWRA trailer in the pits. Racers do not have to belong to MSVWRA to race. If you want to join them in the points chase this year in Albuquerque, Salt Lake City, Denver, and Grand Junction it will on cost $50 to become a member for the year.
Our home town hero, Jorge Coblenz, won the sportsman class last year in his double cab bus. If you didn't see it, you missed some good racing.
The event is just over a week away. I hope you all make it out this year to support the VW community and increase our presence at the track. We outnumbered every other make and model last year and hope to do the same this year. Here is a copy of the racing flyer:
