On Sunday June 2nd, 2019 our JayCee Enterprises sponsored Heritage Series had its first race at the acclaimed Maple Grove Raceway in Mohnton, PA. The weather forecast had some projected rain showers later that afternoon so it was decided that we would opt to go with 1 qualifying session in all classes and head straight into eliminations.
The day started with our Rancho Performance Transaxles sponsored I/GAS class. Our 2018 defending champion Eric Hengstenberger made the long drive from Akron, OH to defend his championship against some of the east coast’s best racers. Even a few from down south such as Adam Dalton from North Carolina made the trip to Maple Grove. At the end of the day Nelson Rodriguez Sr. from New Jersey was the last man standing and took home the win and points lead when Eric Hengstenberger was shut off from an oil leak. In 2015 Nelson finished 2nd in the points chase and he’s focusing his attention to capturing that title this season.
We would like to welcome "Ohio" Thomas Simpson and Simpson Racing Engines on board as one of our 2019 Sponsors. Tom has built countless engines and transmissions for numerous racers and enthusiasts all over the country. Most recently he has supplied horsepower for our 2018 IGAS Champion Eric Hengstenberger. Also racers such as Doug Dowd, Kevin Callahan, Gary Zipperian, and Daniel May.
Tom will be back out this year in his turbo charged car running in IGAS in hopes to steal that championship away from his good friend Eric. We look forward to seeing Tom and his family at the track and if you ever need any help or guidance he is an open book and is always willing to help a fellow Vw friend.
Rancho Transaxles has just confirmed as the title sponsor for the I/GAS class for the 2019 season. As you know Rancho has been involved in building Vw Transaxles for almost 35 years. We had an opportunity to tour their enormous facility last year and below is their shop tour video. If your ever calling to order parts or ask questions be sure to mention the Heritage Series and thank them for their sponsorship.

I'm very proud to announce our new 2019 Sponsor Billet Atomizer Racing Injectors. Many of you are familiar with Jack French and his Street Outlaws car "The Vixen". Jack has been making injectors for over 30 years and has honed in on the motorsports industry for the last 11 years.
Their biggest focus have been the design improvements for larger injectors for drag vehicles requiring massive amount of fuel consumption. Other manufacturers are limited on the amount of fuel their injectors can flow but with the Atomizers they range from 42PPH all the way up to 1500PPH.
Jack and his crew will custom make any injector you need just give them a call. When ordering make sure to mention the Vw Heritage Series and Jack will throw in some free goodies.

On September 29th the V-Dub Drag Fest took place at Numidia Dragway. This was our 2nd stop in the International Motor Shop I/GAS class points series. We had over 15 of our members show up for the chase for the championship and a handful of other racers attending the event as well. Coming into the event current points leader Eric Hengstenberger had a target on his back. Eric was unfortunately knocked out in the 2nd round of eliminations by Rick Lazar.
In the finals it paired up Gene Ulrich against our 2014 I/GAS Champion Eric Hellmuth who took a few years off and has stormed back into the scene in a hurry. Both drivers were amped up and redlit as the tree came down but fortunately for Gene his redlight was not as bad as Erics. This is Gene's first ever win and we want to take a moment and congratulate him on his victory. He has done a lot of test and tune runs lately and is getting his rhythm in his new car.
Also a congratulations on Eric Hellmuth who just joined the series and jumped from last to 4th in the standings after just one event. Our final race of the season is on October 14th at Maple Grove Raceway and it should be a doozy. We look forward to seeing everyone in a few weeks for our final race of the season to crown our 2018 Champions.
