Thanks to our new sponsor for 2014
IAP and Kuhltek Motorwerks!

No matter what your VW interest is, there's something for everyone at the BUG-IN. Our 1/8th mile Drag Racing is action packed non-stop entertainment, running all throughout the afternoon. We have both a "stock" and "custom" participant judged car show with over 20 classes to choose from, which can sometimes attract over 500 cars. Vendors from all the top companies in the industry have displays in our "Manufactures Midway" located right behind the grand stands in the middle of all the action. Lastly, the Swap Meet at the BUG-IN  stretches over nearly half the parking lot, and could take you all afternoon just to walk.

The BUG-IN has all your Volkswagen needs in one event!!

 Car Show Info 

The BUG-IN is home to one of the largest VW Car Shows in the world. Sponsored by Wolfsburg West, all years and models of VWs are welcome to participate in the show no matter what your shape or size. Our car show is divided into two separate categories; Vintage and Custom. Among those categories are different classes split up by model and year. It is completely up to the participant whether they want to be judged in the Custom class, or the Vintage Class.

Each participant will receive a judging card, and asked to vote for one car in each class except the class they are entered in. Once completed, the judging card is returned to the car show registration booth, and the votes are counted. For each class there is a 1st place and Runner up plaque awarded.
