On Saturday September 4th the Empi Sponsored Vw Heritage Series returned to Maryland International Raceway for their season finale. This year we brought 3 classes to showcase the Vw's in front of an import crowd at the iRev (Import Revolution). To kick things off we started with our fastest class which was the Atomizer Racing Injectors Pro Mod Class. After 2 rounds of qualifying new comer Brad Robertson sat in the #1 spot with a 6.21 @ 111mph in his street legal 63' Vw Beetle. Brad would have a bye run in round 1, Stephen Hawes took the win over Reggie Lee and Austin Johnson III took the win over Steve Kesterman. In the Semi Finals Austin had a bye run and Stephen Hawes took the win over Brad. Brad posted a career best run of 5.977 @ 116mph. That's smoking fast for a street legal bug with a side draft carburetor. The finals paired Stephen vs Austin with Stephen taking the win with a 5.593 @ 130mph. Also a HUGE thank you to Cookers Restorations for helping with the purse for this event.
In our Rancho Performance Transaxles Super Pro Class we had a mixed crowd of racers. Some coming all the way from Ohio to take on the locals from Maryland, Pennsylvania and Virginia. In the end it was our 2018 Champion Eric Hengstenberger facing off against Rick Lazar. At the end of the day it was Rick Lazar taking the win. Rick also finished 4th in the championship chase. We also want to thank Dale Adams Racing for sponsoring the purse for this event.
In the Pro Class sponsored by Steven Pocaro Sr. and Jerry Lewis Roofing it was David Snowden Jr taking the win.
