We are sponsoring Gripped Racing, a team of approximately 30 local racers competing in Road, Mountain and Cylcocross events! We have provided the team with a Lindsay Volkswagen Sportwagen to help them get around when they’re not on their bikes! Visit GrippedRacing.com for more information, and see photos updates on our social accounts!


This year Lindsay Automotive is again supporting Bike to the Beach (B2B), a 107 mile bicycle ride from DC to Dewey Beach that raises funds and awareness for Autism charities. Our General Manager, Jerry Holloway, will join the ride again this year (he’s been training hard!). We are reaching out for a little support from our Facebook community.

For every new “Fan” (like of our Facebook page) that we gain from now until the ride (8/1), Jerry will personally donate $2 to Bike to the Beach; up to $500 (in addition to his other fundraising efforts)! As of today we are proud to have 2,660 Facebook fans, an increase of 110 fans since we started this promotion last week! Let’s continue the momentum so please spread the word and help Jerry raise an extra $500 for B2B! More details here.

Come out to Lindsay Volkswagen on the afternoon of June 20, 2014 to meet Volkswagen Andretti Rallycross team members: Tanner Foust and Scott Speed.

The Volkswagen Andretti Rallycross team is preparing for another exciting weekend at the third round of the Red Bull Global Rallycross Championship at Volkswagen Rallycross DC. This race will be particularly exciting for the team, because many of the fans cheering the cars and drivers on will be from the Volkswagen Group of America headquarters in Herndon, VA, near to the nation’s capital.

Scott Speed, driver of the No. 77 7UP Volkswagen and former Formula One driver, wants to continue the focus after coming off two wins in Barbados and X Games Austin.  “We will continue to focus and make sure the 7UP Volkswagen pushes to the front of the pack.”

Tanner Foust, driver of the No. 34 Rockstar Energy Drink Volkswagen and host of Top Gear USA, is excited to be back to the city where he attended high school.  Having a tough start with incidents in both Barbados and X Games Austin, he is seeking the support of his hometown Washington, DC area fans. “I went to high school in Washington, D.C., so this is as much of a hometown race as it can get. With so much Volkswagen fan support, it will be doubly so,” said Foust. “I’ll have a lot of great friends and family at the track supporting the Volkswagen Andretti Rallycross team.”

Volkswagen Rallycross DC will be held at RFK Stadium in Washington, D.C., on June 21- 22. NBC will air the race live on Sunday, June 22 at 2 p.m. EST.

Meet Scott Speed and Tanner Foust at Lindsay Volkswagen on June 20, 2014 from 3:30 – 5:30. You will the opportunity to take a photo with the drivers and their cars, as well as have a chance to win tickets to the Volkswagen Rallycross DC event on Saturday and Sunday.

Lindsay Volkswagen will be in attendance at the Rallycross so look for our Volkswagen’s in the opening parade. Look for us while there so you can take a drive in one of our Volkswagen’s.

We have some excellent Father’s Day gift ideas, especially if you want to beat out your siblings and get Dad a gift he’ll never forget!

fathersdaybbqIf your dad is more of the rugged type, check out the 2014 Ram 1500, Chevy Silverado 2500HD, Ford F-150, or Jeep Wrangler Unlimited.  If Dad has a little bit sportier taste, then the Lexus IS F-Sport, Cadillac CTS-V Coupe, or the VW GTI might be right up his alley.


However, if you’re on a slightly smaller budget, we also have plenty of great gift ideas in the Parts Departments at all of our locations.  Whether it be new floor mats for his Chevy, Mopar Parts & Accessories for his Jeep, Nike Apparel and Cadillac golf gear for him, or VW-themed gifts like a BBQ Apron and 3 Piece Set or the VW Traveling Tunes Cooler, the possibilities are endless!! fathersdaycadillacapparel

The all-new, seventh-generation Golf and Golf GTI models, when equipped with optional forward collision warning, have earned the coveted 2014 TOP SAFETY PICK+ rating from the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS).

These vehicles offer a combination of both passive and active systems and have been engineered to meet or exceed all current crash regulations. The cars feature  a number of electronic and mechanical Driver Assistance systems, including the Automatic Post-Collision Braking System that applies the brakes when a primary collision is detected by the airbag sensors, thus helping reduce residual kinetic energy and, in turn, the chance of additional damage. All Golf and Golf GTI models are equipped with standard Electronic Stability Control (ESC) and six airbags. The SE and SEL models are also available with a Driver Assistance Package that includes Forward Collision Warning and front and rear Park Distance Control systems.

“To have IIHS recognize both the Volkswagen Golf and Golf GTI as a Top Safety Pick+ is a great statement for the brand“ said Mark McNabb, chief operating officer, Volkswagen of America, Inc. “The seventh-generation Golf and GTI models are the ideal combination of Volkswagen design, performance, innovative safety and world-class engineering.”

The Golf GTI hit dealer showrooms over the Memorial Day holiday weekend and the Golf market introduction is set for August. The Golf GTI and Golf models offer room for five full-size passengers and more cargo capacity than any midsize sedan. With more standard content and technology, increased power and improved fuel efficiency, the all-new Golf and Golf GTI are sure to exceed customer expectations. Adding the TOP SAFETY PICK+ will further distinguish the Golf GTI and Golf in their class.

In order to qualify as a 2014 IIHS TOP SAFETY PICK, vehicles must earn a “good” rating in the Institute’s moderate overlap front, side, roof strength and head restraint tests, as well as a “good” or “acceptable” rating in the small overlap front test. To qualify for 2014 Top Safety Pick+, a vehicle must meet the Top Safety Pick criteria, plus earn a “basic,” “advanced” or “superior” rating for front crash prevention.

After a successful sponsorship last season, Lindsay is once again partnering with the Potomac Nationals in Woodbridge, VA. The P-Nats won the first half championship last season and hope to build on that this year and boast much of the young talent in the Washington Nationals farm system.  Furthermore, due to proximity, Washington Nationals players coming off of the disabled list regularly appear in Potomac on rehab assignments (We’re hoping Bryce may be in play for the Autism Awareness Jersey Day).

We have three sponsored dates:

June 8th – Autism Awareness Jersey Day

July 26th – Lindsay Sponsored Fireworks Show

August 16th – Jayson Werth Wolf-a-rine giveaway
