    You need a new clutch.

    Edit: just to verify what's going on.
    If you're in gear, and you floor the gas peddle the RPM's go up, but the speedometer doesn't... then you need a new clutch.

    Sounds like you burned it up racing (the clutch)....did you notice a burning type smell at anytime between your runs? You'll know it if it's a burnt clutch smell...different than burnt rubber from tires

    the same thing happened to one of my friends Jetta, it ended up being the fly wheel, but i think u need to take off the clutch to get to that anyways, so if that is the case u might replace both at the same time.
