Don’t forget that me and JohnP will be covering all aspects of Stance of the Union today and will try our hardest to bring you all of the fresh cars and whips that the South has to offer! Then it’s off to the 16NISS shindig that night in Dallas, TX, and of course, the main course, Texas Lonestar Bash in Mineral Wells, TX, just outside of Ft. Worth.
We’ve got our camera gear charged, packed, and ready to snap. We’ll also be rolling out with one of local crews, 786Motoring as they’ll be bringing the noise with the 2JZ powered Toyota Drift machines! Keep up with us here on Mayday, and follow me on Twitter @MayDayDavidD as I tweet live at the Stance of the Union meet!
For more info on Stance of the Union, here is the latest details as written on the StanceWorks site:
Saturday – Oct 17th — Stance of the Union – Noon-4PM
The Main Event! Here is a list of what will be happening at the event:
We are having a company cater in food starting at noon: $5/plate for flame-broiled hamburgers / chips / drink…it will be delicious. No need to worry about eating before you get there.
Our house DJ will be laying down fresh beats from old school hip-hop to the best of new underground as well as updating the latest College Football scores.
A photo backdrop will be setup for individual shots of cars as they pull up for parking… much like the “red carpet” before a Premiere… so that everyone will get some nice shots of their car.
Velvet Ropes will section off the Stance car parking area. Please see disclaimer below for more details.
We will have a video crew doing a number of different things:
Filming rolling footage of various vehicles. Some will be chosen to run the new TachyonXC drift cameras to capture the fitment of cars.
Film crews will be interviewing individuals about their vision of the future for the car scene as well as the modifications done to their vehicle.
Capturing Event footage all over
Professional Photographers will be all over. From the likes of the renowned Mr. Mike Burroughs to others.
HellaFlush will be present at the event and there “may or may not” be approval stickers to be given out to select vehicles. You will have to come to the event to find out.
Demonstrations will be held during the event, including a custom interior designer actually wrapping parts of an interior at the meet, along with maybe another surprise.
There will be a give-a-way at the top of each hour. Prizes will include: A free Tint-Job, a HellaFlush bundle, possible Dyno Pulls for those who can fit on the dyno … as well as some other prizes.
Stance of the Union custom decals will be provided for all stanced cars in attendance.
Nos Energy will also be out with a crew giving away free energy drinks for those in attendance.
Last, but not least, for those who stick around we will be doing a short drive to conclude the event where we will all follow a designated “stanced-approved” route where there will be camera and video cars capturing us rolling in a big group.
Stance of the Union will re-set the bar of what a car event should look like. We hope everyone comes out early to experience this event in full, and intends to stick around as there won’t be a moment to miss.
We want to thank our Sponsors for their support in helping make this event happen:
Nos Energy Drinks
DJ Ebenezer Dawodu
However, the party doesn’t stop there! Starting at 8pm there will be another event called Nos Energy Nights that will bring all types of cars and modifying styles together that should rival Hot Import Nights. Then Sunday will be the LoneStar Drift Bash, which will definitely be a sight to watch for those wanting to stick around.
**Disclaimer: We want everyone to feel welcomed at this event whether you are “flush” or not. With that said, this event was created specifically for “stanced /flush” cars and thus it is catered towards those who are. If you are directed to another parking lot, please do not take offense and kindly follow our coordinators directions. Our intention is to have a drama-free environment that will be memorable for all. Thank you for your consideration**
Ah yes. Mark my words, this is gonna be an EPIC weekend.
