Open Lots and 100 degree weather. That, is Texas Drifting.
Mayday Mikey Ventured out to the Dog Tracks south of Texas to go hang out with some of our local drifting buddies as veteraned drift organizer, Aaron Losey hosted yet another Texas event. Aaron, like anyone who has a passion, continues to host and promote drifting in Texas no matter how small or large the event may be. That, is Commendable. This event in particular was the prelude to the Mexican standoff which is the 2nd round of the Lonestar Drift Series. More information about this event can be found HERE
A couple of our friends were venturing all the way from Louisiana to drift on Texas soil and get their practice on, so out went Mikey to rep Mayday and say whats up to our Local Drifters and Louisiana folk. DavidD lent Mikey the ol’ D700, gave him a crash course in panning, and sent him on his way to shoot drift for his first time. And I must say, Mikey did a pretty damn good job equipped only with a 50mm 1.4 and some swift David Do training.
Let’s take a look at some of his candy.
Although the event was a bit on the light side, one team that is always out there sharpening their skills was street drift team Silhouette. One driver that Mikey caught was Justin Garner in his Seafoam Green livery, and if you are looking to catch some of their skills on the street, check out videographer Henry Swasey’s clips.
In the pits Mikey found a couple of old and new friends as well as a couple of interesting whips.
Like our ol’ friend Robert Turnbow.
and his money maker..
Nevrslo, Nevr misses an event.
Tow in style..wait a minute.
Mayday Garage is always on the prowl for cool looking whips as well, so if you catch us at an event hit us up for a Mayday sticker.
And in closing, although our roots are ricer based, we always have appreciation for all types of tuning and this hammered bug was the shit, good catch Mikey!
Until next time!
