In the first round of the burnout contest, Aaron "bergboy" Gerber took the $300 first prize when his opponent had a blowout. The winning burnout lasted about 1:42. In the second round, Art Thraen and Jerry Spearn burned it down until Jerry came out of the water box and Art simply couldn't get any more smoke out of his spinning tires.

VW Paradise burns it down at the Sacramento Bug-O-Rama. Several weeks later Kris Lauffer went on to drive this rail to the first 6-second pass for an import dragster. Although he couldn't back up his 6.94 within 1%, it did back up his new e.t. record of 7.04 seconds. This is the fastest & quickest import racing in the world, and it's VW-based.

Andy Costello


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. When Austin racer Tom Funnell heard there was a burnout contest on the internet he fired up his 2110 and laid down a burnout that will leave you smelling rubber for a week! He earned himself a free PRA video and maybe won the contest as well.
