BUG-IN #48   
Sunday June 16, 2024

presented by 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 a participant judged car show with a dozen 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.

Vendors get to skip the line in the morning and load in from 5:30-6:30am, and will have their company name read off by the announcer throughout the day.

BUG-IN offers a Full Car Show at no extra charge to enter thanks to Wolfsburg West.
