After a snowy, chilly winter, Northeast VW and Audi owners finally 'dusted' off their rides for New England's first event - aptly called Dustoff.
The New England Dustoff is renowned for being the first big gathering after the winter season. It's located in the historic Seekonk Speedway, 15 minutes from Providence, RI
making it easily accessible. It also offers owners a chance to fill the third-mile banked oval track, creating an amphitheater of Dubs!
Last April's show saw more than 750 cars and 1000+ people from states as far as NJ, PA and MN. Despite a lingering rainstorm, the community overcame the weather and united to welcome the '10 show season with a bang.
The show is held annually. It was first established six years ago when two cars clubs, Ocean State Dubs and Bay State Dubs, joined forces. The latter died away but Ocean State has taken the reins for the past few years to organize a very enjoyable event.
With a judged show headlining the day, club parking was introduced this year and was an instant hit. Instead of cars being divided into make and model, close friends and club members could park together, avoiding separation anxiety. This contributed further to the laidback atmosphere Dustoff is famous for.
We'd like to congratulate Club Grim Water for bringing the most cars to the show, as well as Jon Dresser for taking home 'best of show' award. We also tip our hats to Andre Genest. He won cash for creating the best online video that portrayed the show. You can see the video at nedustoff.com as well as a list of all the winners.
