Multiple PRA points champion, hard core VW drag racer; he has survived brain surgery and a serious crash in the Fred Simpson fastback... this is The Spoiler, Andy Costello. He only showed up for one PRA race in 1998, but he was both the #1 qualifier and the race winner. This vintage 1989 footage will give you an idea of what he does to relax.
Deep in the heart of V-8 country is a crew of hard-core VW racers that are up for any kind of a challenge.

He earned himself a free PRA video and maybe won the contest as well.
Check out this smoking burnout by Edward Bergenholtz in his '89 Honda CRX. Edward runs in the Quick-8 front wheel drive class, and he ran a [email protected] m.p.h. at the Goodtimes Import Challenge on 5/98. These kinds of record-setting passes are what makes import racing the sport of the future!
