VWs AT THE ROCK RESULTS
WOW! What a turnout for our return to the Rock! We had a gorgeous day!
There were some Beautiful VWs all over the Facility from the show cars to the Drag cars. Our Best of Show winner was just that, Shatef Carey out of Rockingham, brought out his freshly finished 72 Beetle. This Beetle was ready for its debut on St. Patrick's Day that is for sure.
Kevin Shaw from Shaw's Classic Aircooled had is stunning Maroon 70 Beetle out with his family and walked away with The Inner Beauty Award and Kids Choice award.
The Race portion of the event had racers from all over the East coast in attendance. This was the SEVWA season opener and they were ready to go. Furthest Distance would go to our Pro runner-up Wayne Farquhar in his 19 Jetta. He was on his way back home from vacation in Florida and planned this race on the way back. SEVWA Super Pro Champion Clint Woolard came out on top as the Winner of the Super Pro class, even after he broke at TNT the night before.
The swap meet area also did not disappoint. There were about 20 new and used vendors out for you to find what you were looking for. Our sponsors, East Coast Sandrails and Parts, Carolina Dune Buggies, Jarrett import and Monkey Nut Vintage VW were all out in the vendor area showcasing their goods to the crowd as well.
I would like to Thank each and everyone of you for coming out to the event. These events are what you make them and I hope that each and everyone of you enjoy them, as that is what they are all about! A special Thank You to my TEAM for all their help to make this event run smoothly.
We will be coming back to The Rock in 2020 on March 15, so pencil that on your calendars.
