This 15th edition of Fast Times at Farmington took place on Sunday April 10th, 2011 at Farmington Dragway in Mocksville, NC. The Forecast started out as a rain free weekend or so we thought. Upon our arrival at the Track on Saturday afternoon, it just started raining enough that the race that was going on had to be cancelled. We went ahead and got in our spot for Sunday and hoped that it wouldn’t rain too much so the ground wouldn’t be so wet. Well we had a good storm come through around 7pm, but that was it. After a few hours many VW folks started to arrive to set up their vendor or camping spots. Most of them had come through some MAJOR storms trying to get there. Good for us was all of this missed the track, so it had time to dry out overnight.

Sunday morning was a bit foggy as well as a Cloudy start. The gate was already lined with cars at 7am and it was non- stop all morning long! The vendor/swap meet area started filling up really FAST and by 1pm it was all the way down past the 1/8mile mark! There were over 55 vendors in attendance, so there was sure something for everybody. Hope you found what you were looking for! If you have VW items at home you need to get rid of, get them together and bring out to the next VW event, but make sure you are there early to get a good spot! Many spectators get there super early to try and snag all the good deals!

The car show area was packed with 122 of the Best VWs in North Carolina! Samuel Cox brought out his just finished 56 Oval Beetle for the first time and walked away with Best of Show, Best Paint and First in Class.  Phillip Sheek had his 60 Euro Beetle out, looking good as always and snagged the Best Interior Award, Ethan Icenhour was in attendance with his 60 Indigo Blue Beetle and walked away with Best Engine and Placed 2nd in the Beetle Modified pre-62 Class. All of these guys mentioned above were in the same class and it was a tough category as they were just one or two points separating them! Jeff Huber brought out his two Buggies’ for the event and his race buggy took the Promoters Choice award. We look forward to seeing this Buggy going down the strip in the future. There were WAY too many NICE VWs out in the show area to mention! Be sure you check out the photos to see them all! Also, for the Fall Farmington, we plan to make some revisions to the show area so we can accommodate everyone that would like to have a non-judged VW only parking area at no extra charge.

The racing area had some 45 racers all ready to roll down the dragstrip in hopes that they could take home some of that $4000 in prize money in 3 bracket classes. We had Ken Fisher of Fisher Buggies out of Tampa, FL with his New Beetle Door Slammer drag car and made some awesome passes and even set a MPH record. Also a local racer had his Wheelstander in action making some test passes that REALLY wowed the crowd! Super Pro Class had 2010 Champion Bruce Ridgeway taking the win over Clint Woolard. Pro Class it was Tony Miller over Manuel Hudson and In Sportsman for the second event in a row Rick Laws took the win over Arnold Williams. Take a look at the race results section for photos and a complete rundown of times.

We would like to thank everyone for coming out and making this another successful event. Without YOU there would be no event. If you have any comments or suggestions, please let us know. We always welcome your thoughts! Join us on May 22nd at Piedmont Dragway for Big Bug Shootout #7. We will be back at The Farm on Oct 23rd.
