2023 Results

norwood 2023After a lot of preparation, planning and grunt work, we just pulled off VW Nationals #9 in grand fashion! This was definitely the best one yet with our most spectators, show cars and only 5 tech cards shy of our racer record.

First off, this would not be feasible without my family. My wife for dealing with the year-round head in the phone for messages, calls, setting things up and general nonsense. Her willingness to pack up for four days, drive to middle of nowhere Maryland with the kids in tow and our second home become a racetrack is unwavering.

The amount of people who helped out on the day of the event is amazing. We had absolutely ZERO parking issues with swap or show. Cecil had the swap meet high and tight while the Filthy Bugger crew held the car show down. All registration and voting were done efficiently, swiftly and mistake free.

If you bought a t shirt or asked for once after we sold out, you probably talked to my mom or sister. They also came down to help out and sling merchandise. We even had my brother in charge of racer pairing while my dad cooked. Legit whole family there.

To all of the racers, show cars, vendors and spectators who showed up…thank you. You are the show. You are the reason people drive through the gate and roast in the sun. I really appreciate you all who could do anything else, but you chose to attend an event I promote. Thank you.

We had a mountain motor pro stock car. Gave away a turnkey engine. A racer and car all the way from Austria! He set low ET of the event with a 4.80 and got the win in Pro Outlaw! Funny side story is that this was his event win ever. Apparently over the pond they just kind of run test and tune. He scored a first career win at the little old VW Nationals.

I hope all the race winners enjoyed the big checks and winners’ stickers. You show car guys got nice plaques and stickers also. For our 10-year anniversary next year, we will work on some specialty awards. I am trying to keep this short but it’s not really working.

See you guys in 2024 for the 10th anniversary show!! Sponsors, please inquire as we are always looking to add to our existing list. Without these company’s and people, there is no event. It is that simple.
