We are pleased to announce a new event in the Northeast for 2017, the Air Raid @ Island Dragway. This will be our first of hopefully many shows at a new venue for the air cooled hobby with racing of course but will also have a show and swap. We've lost a number of well attended shows this year so our club wanted to try and bring something new to you all. The event is open to all makes and model vehicles as long as it's an air cooled (Volkswagen, Porsche, Corvair, etc).

The flier is attached with most of the details. We're still ironing out a few things with the track such as vending prices but otherwise things are a go and we'll update you all here soon.

Thanks in advance for supporting CJVWS!

What a way to start the Show Season with racing, swapping and show. I've never been to Island Dragway so, this is a first for me.

We are working out the vendor pricing with the track as we speak. Should know for sure very soon, sorry for the delay!

Great news! We've been able to negotiate an even lower admission fee for show cars down to only $15 (Includes car and driver). We also confirmed the swap spaces will only be $20 for a roughly 10' x 10' space.

The Filthy Buggers and Pocaro Bros Racing offered to kick some money in for the cash purse for the racing, so the total pot keeps growing. Should make for some good competition!

Hoping to make this one, you guys always put on a good show. Stupid question but, can anyone go down the track? Would be a hoot to take the westy down Very Happy

Not a dumb question at all. I'm sure some of the racers will chime in.

I think all you need is a seat belt, full face helmet, long pants, and a running car. I plan to run what ever aircooled car that works that weekend.

Casey hit all the major points for racing. This link has all the requirements broken down into a few parts if you have a few minutes to read through: http://www.islanddragway.com/index.php/template-info/frequently-asked-questions#run

I'll be running my Westy, for what it's worth.
