Super Street VW Drag Racing: PRA ’95, Ocean Street Video


Gary Berg came out of retirement to make an appearance at the Sacramento Bugorama, in the famous Berg Super Street VW Beetle. He ran head on into the ascending star, Andy Costello, and a serious duel ensued. Both drivers pushed each other into new E.T. records, and a final confrontation. Other Sacramento Super Street action included Candy Larsen of JCL Race Cars, nearly beating the odds with a two-day-old engine in the right-hand drive Ghia, that Shin Watanabe used to race.

These days you can find Candy running in the Powder Puff series, where the competition can be plenty tough. If you ask her how difficult it was to learn how to shift a right-hand drive race car, against the likes of Rafael Vasquez, Andy Costello, Gary Berg, Chris Tool, etc., she’ll probably tell you that it was no big deal.

1995 marked the emergence of Shawn Geers as a serious player in the PRA Pro ranks, and it could have also been the first time that Super Street Dave Perkins ran the class.
