Who is Bad Bug Racing?

Jeff Rogers is the proprietor of Bad Bug Racing and raced 1BADBUG, his daily driver street-legal beetle, from 1981 until 1993.  In the early 1990s, Jeff acquired what would become the Bad Bug 2, and in 1994, the Bad Bug 2 officially made its debut at the track.  The car has been modified on several platforms, including "All Motor", with nitrous oxide and currently is turbocharged, intercooled and fuel injected.
