4-28.13 A.J.Sims WINS! Great showing with new members and some real close racing with 11 cars showing up! We had 3 cars dip in the 7's with Ben setting a new class record of 7.77 Jessi ran some real fast times of 7.92 and A.J ran his best with a 7.82 New class member Robert was clicking off some low 8's right a way and Dan was now one of the fast guys to keep a look out for! This was the largest turnout and with half of the field only 1/2 second apart from each other made for some action packed heads up racing!. Special thanks to our class sponsor Benco for all there support.
3-17-13 Ben from Benco wins the first race for 2013 and clicks off some fast times. We had 9 cars show up to race the 165Class at Drag Day. One car had problems stooping and unfortunately made contact with a poll on the top end. Dylan Venegas joined us 165ers with his new 2387cc turbo beast, harder than it looks Dylan did a 720 in his race car but kept it off the wall! Now that was some driving! Big news of the day was the tight racing going on. The three top cars ran 8.13, 7.91 and a smoking 7.89 laid down by Jesse Hardin with a close final race between Jesse and Ben with Ben taking the win with a 7.92 @91mph over Jesse 7.96 @86mph. This is Ben's first win in the class and he looked like he was enjoying it!
10-28-12 Well the last race of 2012 Was strong showing with A.J.Sims in his turbo fastback pulling off a win over Jesse Hardin in his all motor bug in the final when Jesse got the big RED Bulb lit! Congrats to A.J and his crew!
7- 15-12 The Boys did it again. If this was a championship points year Anthony Hernds would be blowing away the competition. They graded 1st place again. Here is the results from Hot VW's Drag Day. 1st Anthony Hernds - Rosemead, Ca.$500 2nd Ben Berniklan - Riverside, Ca.$100 $100 first in the 7's Ben Berniklan 2x 165 tires to largest burnout Ben Berniklan Its looking like a 1, 2 punch for Anthony but can he hold down the new comers for the next race? I know Ben is going to step it up for the last race of the year!
On a test and tune night Back on 7-2-12 Anthony Hernds clicked off a fast pass of 7.73 @ 87.71mph with a set of NK165 tires. WOW! Now thats stepping it up a notch! Check out the video. Click Here
6-20-12 So now we got $$$-Money-$$$ added to the 165Class pot! $500.00 to first place, $100.00 to second place. Thanks to 407 Speed Shack and Benco Transmission for the money donations. Still giving away 2x 165 tires to the largest burnout that were donated from Empi! LowBugget will give $100 to the first to brake into the 7's. So the winner can walk away with up to $600 and a set of 165 tires!
WE are back! Yes it's time for round number #2 of the 165 class. This next race is back at Irwindale July 15 2012. The first race was real close with the finales between 1st Anthony Hernds - Rosemead, Ca. 2nd Ben Berniklan - Riverside, Ca. Some tight racing in the low 8's So who will be the first into the 7's on a 165?
4-12-12 I talked my dad (Mr.Sims) into racing the class! It wasn't that hard, i said: Dad if i get you some 165 tires would you run in the class? He said OK! So your newest member is my dad! How cool would that be to face him one of the rounds or in the finale!
3-28-12 Well looks like after all the tracks closing all at once the Bug-In is back! The Bug-In will be held on Sunday April 29th, 2012 at Irwindale drag strip. So get your cars in shape for the first race!
1-24-12 We got it! Just received the tire test kit. This kit is used to check tires if they have been treated or have a altered surface. I just love gadgets! One of the things we have talked about is jacking "up" one side of the members race car to check for open diffs. It seams people are over looking the rules and trying to find ways to bend them, all i can say is, think about your combo, what it will take to make your car go down the track the fastest with what has been placed in front of you!
1-09-12 Check it out, we now have 13 cars with Paul Sarnecki and his 1968 bug that has a 1915cc combo with turbo and NOS. This thing is a beast! Hope you have fun Paul with the class! This just might be the car to beat!
Happy New year! Back at work for the new year and just want to say "HAPPY NEW YEAR"
12-2-11 Ok now 11 members with Eric Outland now coming out with his 1966 chop top. Has a Turbo powered 2110cc. This beast has run in the low 6's in the 1/8 mile. He wants all to know that its also for sale! Good luck E-Rock!
