2015 New England Dustoff
Posted on January 22, 2015
It’s hard to believe that 2015 marks our 10th anniversary of the show at a Motorsports facility; its the 13th year of the show. It may seem like we have come a long way from a cooler of beer and some hamburgers on the grill at Colt State Park, but the essence of the show is still the same. We have worked extremely hard to grow the attendance, sponsorship, and almost every other facet of the show,but our biggest priority has been to keep it a family-friendly event.
There were a few factors involved but this year we made the decision to move the event to Thompson Speedway Motorsports Park in Thompson CT. This venue will allow us the space and flexibility that we need to grow the show for years to come. We had to push the show out a month for 2015 and the date is Sunday May 31. Our normal April show date will resume in 2016.
Some exciting news that has come from the transition to a new venue our some of the new relationships we have formed with sponsors and vendors. We will always be grateful to Mattie Imports for their support of the show but the move to CT just doesn’t make business sense for them to stay on as our Title Sponsor. Do not worry, we are planning to keep them involved and they will be a major support for our end of the year WrapUp show in October.
Kyle has been one of the biggest assets to OSD and has supported the show (and most us personally) since day 1. He has always gone above and beyond with donations, contributions, anything he could provide, and never asked for recognition. He made a big decision over the last few years and he opened up KDDesigns in Woonsocket. We couldn’t think of a better person and company to have as a Title Sponsor and partner this year. He was our first call and was equally excited to participate in the show. We talked and through his network he got us introduced to his contact at Air Lift Company. A few emails and phone calls later, Air Lift has asked to be the other Title Sponsor.
We will have a ton of new information in the coming week and some very exciting announcements. You can follow us here, on Facebook, Instagram (@germanblake or @thewhitsnpt), and VWvortex for your updates.
