Hot VWs Drag Day is held twice a year in SoCal. With a 1/8th mile Drag Strip, Swap Meet, and Show N’ Shine display area – there was something for everyone. Being a huge Volkswagen fan, this was the ideal place for me to be on a sunny Sunday afternoon!
I’ve been to Irwindale Speedway many, many times – but never for this event. As I started walking through the parking lot I noticed 2 long lines of VWs. They were waiting to check- in and get setup for the day.
I was able to snap a few shots before they disappeared into the drivers-only area.
On my way to the drag strip I made my way through the Show N’ Shine area. There was an amazing variety of VWs on display.
This was actually my first time seeing drag racing in person. I must say, it was pretty exciting!
I really enjoyed seeing so many different VWs compete.
The drag racing wasn’t just for old-school VWs either.
After the races I had to walk the Show N’ Shine area again. I knew there was so much more to see.
Around every corner was a new line of VW variety.
There were some very clean and classic VWs, along with some projects and custom builds.
There’s nothing wrong with a little rust and some scratches. It adds character!! 😉
I had a lot of fun and can’t wait to go back next month!!
I’m glad I could share this day with you and hope you enjoyed my coverage!
