Round 6 of the Lone Star Drift Series

Traveled out to Mineral Wells last weekend and got a few photos of some good old fashioned grassroots drifting…

Panda Hatch was just chillen out there at the airport…

Don’t mind the vintage type photos… it was taken with a potato…

MCR (My Chemical Romance) Factory’s S15…

Photo is a bit blurry bc I’m still getting used to this potato cameara….

Proper fitment for any BRZ/FRS/Genesis

All types of skid racing going on…

@nightparade’s street legal skid car…

Special guest D1 driver, Yokoi Masashi, was out there as well…

Traveling all the way from AZ for some drifting fun…

Stance…

Big Country Wang….

Day 1 consisted of racing til dusk… then it was time to party…

This E36 was loud AF…

Drivers were hella excited to be out there…

Yin and yang…

SR20’s pull a premium…

A normal racecar cockpit…

Justin Hosek’s 4GS powered hachiroku, Robert Turnbow 2JZ and Dewayne Ramsey’s 1JZ powered Cressida’s representing 80’s best…

If you thought the weather was too hot to be out there, it WASN’T too bad…

I didn’t get to stay for competition but the D1 drivers, Yokoi and Tezuka, were commenting in Japanese like you would hear in D1 competitions…

Smoking is not that bad for you…

It’s tough only having a 55mm and 135mm prime lenses, but you get creative and get different angles…

But I’m pretty lazy so I just got one angle…

This potato camera is not too bad but I wouldn’t recommend it…

4 door Camry power…

Favorite chassis for drifters worldwide…

Thanks for looking… rice on!

Texas Drifting: Henry Swasey Does Lonestar Drift Round 1

If you have been keeping up with drifitng in Texas you are now well aware that Aaron Losey of Fabricated Motorsports has started a 2011 Lonestar Texas drift series. Round 1 took place at Nonstop Tuning’s anniversary car show event. MaydayGarage was present, but unfortunately we had to skip out early….so you wont be finding any pictures here, however, Henry Swasey from Team Silhouette caught some great coverage. Long story short, Silhouette underdog Robert Lee took the win of Round 1 in his 113 hp AE86 by being tapped by last year XDC series winner Chelsea DeNofa. The first round of the series had a great turnout and is looking very promising! Check the video from Henry Swasey!

Texas Drifting: The Fabricated Motorsports Tech Day Prelude to the 2011 Drift Series

In case you haven’t heard yet, Aaron Losey the organizer of 98% of drift events in Texas will be hosting a Texas drift series this year in 2011. The introduction to this series was a “dial-in” day held at local tuner shop Powerfab that was composed of horsepower ratings, weight and steering angle for every car. Although all cars competing in the series were not present at the event, you get a general idea of the competitors in the series. Check out the video for the details, definitely a great intro to the 2011 Texas drift series.

Event Coverage: Fabricated Motorsports’ The Mexican Standoff.

A Mexican standoff is a slang term defined as a stalemate or impasse, a confrontation that neither side can forseeably win. In popular culture, the Mexican standoff is usually portrayed as three or more opponents with guns drawn and ready, creating a tense situation. Neither side is willing to shoot for fear of being shot in return, yet neither side wants to relinquish its weapons for fear that its opponents will shoot them. This situation forces the participants to resolve the situation either by diplomacy, surrender, or a pre-emptive strike.

Everything IS bigger in Texas. That includes Carbon wings.

Event Coverage Preview: The Mexican Standoff.

As I’m writing this on my way back from Mineral Wells, TX in DFan’s comfy 4 door civic, I can’t help but think how dedicated a lot of Texas Drifters are. I bitch and moan about a 5 hour drive to a sleepy town that nobody has heard of, but these guys not only make that same drive, but they also wrench on their cars all the way up to the last minute for these drift events held by Fabricated Motorsports. These guys are pretty serious when it comes to making these events, and this event was no different.

Lone Star Bash 2010: A Host’s Perspective.

“May 16, 2010 marked the date of the second Lone Star Bash. LSB as we will refer to it is an idea more than anything. Basically by labeling an event such as this, everyone knows exactly what event they need to ALL come out to, all at once. LSB is a date to bring everyone together. There are no draws like prize money, naked import models, trophies, cotton ball smoke on top of mirrors, or any of that. The draw is hanging out with awesome people that think alike, tandeming 10 cars deep with 100 mph entries, partying the night before, and being a part of something big. While the car show scene has died out in the last few years, leaving the giants HIN and NOPI dead, the drift scene has exploded. And yet it has stayed very grass roots at the same time.
