Our EMPI sponsored Heritage Series race at the KPtuned VW Nationals #7 at Mason Dixon Dragway was jammed packed on August 14th. There was a Car Show, Used Parts Vendors, New Parts, and 7 classes to race your Vw.
In our Rancho Transaxles sponsored Super Pro Class we had close to 30 cars at the facility thanks to a joint effort of the Heritage Series and the South Eastern VW Association (SEVWA). This was a points race for both organizations and it has proven to be a great event for the North and South.
In the finals of Super Pro it was Clint Woolard making the trip from North Carolina to face off against the B. McKean from Maryland. Unfortunately for McKean the race was over as soon as he let the clutch out with a -.113 reaction time handing the win over to Clint Woolard. Congratulations to the entire Woolard Drag Racing Team on their win.
In the Atomizer Fuel Systems Pro Mod Class we had a total of 11 entries make the field. At the conclusion of qualifying it was Stephen Hawes sitting in the #1 position with a 5.38 @ 136mph. Followed by #2 qualifier Chris Schaeffer with a 6.17, and #3 qualifier Austin L. Johnson III with a 6.26.

Our next event will be on September 4th at Maryland International Raceway in conjunction with the iRev event. We will be campaigning the Super Pro Class and the Pro Mod Class. This will be our final points race of the year so make sure you come out to support because the 2021 EMPI Heritage Series Champions will be awarded. Also a friendly reminder we will be paying all the way down to 4th place in the series this year.
Also a HUGE..... thank you to the one and only Scott Pocaro for bringing the North and South together for one of the largest events we've seen in a long time. Scott works year round promoting this event and his hard work is definitely showing.
Thank you and see everyone on September 4th at MIR.
