It was fun to be able to race this year (2017).  I hope someone got some pics to share.  I think I counted 19 VWs... I think.

Well, I found the exhaust leak (singular) tonight!  The other two seems to be sealed.  So, after it cools, I'll try to reseal it.  Then I still need to adjust the shift cables to find 3rd, but after a tune up tonight, it is getting better.
