"Officer I'm not drunk, I'm just swervin on these hoes" - Diego Sanchez

Day 1 took a toll on some of us so we didn’t bother getting up early since the event didn’t really start til 1 or 2pm. My main goal was to try to get more drifting action for Day 2, but that didn’t go according to plan. So in order to make up for it, we did some rice hunting around Road Atlanta…

Mayday Mikey packed up and ready to head back to Houston...

Imagine driving 15+ hrs with that thing sticking into your side...

Mikey's Project Voltron is very serious business...

CF Yashio Factory hood mounted on the top...

Powered by Max hydraulic e-brake...

Packed to hell with Project Voltron donor parts...

Before heading out, we looked up places to eat around the area...

Yup... we had to go with Krystal Burger...

We finally arrive and the parking areas were filled with eye candy...

Four doors = More Hoes

Looks like this Miata has Blue Balls...

Hugs. One size fits all...

A new expression of 'Rated G'...

So you think you can stance?

Side exit exhaust?

Needs wider fenders...

The ultimate grocery getter...

Merican version of the Devil Z...

Our top pick of the parked cars at FD was this Corolla Deluxe...

Gotta keep that Gatorade nearby...

Prepare your anus...

Hey Silvia..

 

Being in the parking areas felt like we were back in the 90s again...

Even the 80s....

Mayday Mikey <3's Leopard Skin...

The stance on this WRX reminded me of Abbitt's old WRX...

I think it's watching me....

The quantity of cars was not that great, but the quality of cars at Slammed Society wasn't too bad...

European M power on Japanese wheels... european rice.

This thing flies....

Southrnfresh brought out a good crew of cars...

Bling bling....

Grillz even blingin'....

Definitely not inspired from 'Merica....

Wonder if his front plates read, "Urwinning"?

The baggage crew...

Khaki is an appropriate uniform color...

The owner of this FC also owns the blue S13 from the KDF booth...

How you knew if you won...

Yes, that is rain...

Meanwhile, back at the track....

Drift action was going on...

Scion vs. Subaru....

"Ahhhhh shit!"

The green machine...

Dai was paired up against Grunewald in the first round and did not advance unfortunately...

You know you love your job with a big smile like that...

I really thought Aasbo would be on the top podium, but after some unfortunate "accidents", he finished 5th.

Battle of the SC430s...

Without fans, this sport wouldn't be where it is today...

Can't forget about the mud sliders...

There was a break so I visited the paddock for a bit while it was raining...

They're not drunk, just swerving with style...

The sucky parts of this sport was waiting for cars to be towed or parts to be picked up...

As you can see Southrnfresh shooter, Jason Scott, was not amused.

After the break, it was time for the Top 16 driver's introductions...

Did you notice there was a gopro between her boobs? Of course you did...

Dmac getting in the frame with the model...

Damnit, my camera focused on the wrong person...

The horseshoe is where you play catchup...

Flame on!

I slowed my shutter speed down a bit too much...

I went even slower instead....

Joseph Dale of Southrnfresh just laughed at me... :(

I'm definitely coming back to this track next year... it's a challenge shooting here...

Michael Essa looks really good this year coming in 4th place... definitely a contender to be overall champion at the end of the year...

Aasbo is not too far behind..

Jason Scott shows that he's approved by V2Labs..

VGJr goes up against Daigo... but the Ninja takes him down..

Shooting for Stancenation was Sid Fligel... one of the hairiest photographers I've ever met...

In the end, Daigo Saito took the top podium while Dmac took 2nd and Vaughn Gitten Jr. took 3rd....

The downhill before the first corner is where you prove yourself...

Daigo was really thirsty...

I’ll be taking a break from traveling for awhile, but it won’t be for too long. Check back from time to time to see what’s happening in the Mayday Garage.
