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.

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!

On the Run Girl Style: Aubre Houck’s Kouki 240sx

A couple of weeks ago, MaydayGarage was on a mission across Texas to catch driver profiles of the recent Import Reactor Drift event that happened here in Houston last week. In 2 days we shot 5 cars, and 4 profiles. We had traveled to Dallas, Texas on our first day of the trek to meet up with our good friend Stewart Leask and shoot his driver profile. When we had arrived to D-town Stew asked us if we had some extra time to snap some shots his girlfriend, Aubre Houck’s car. Now, I know that there are some tuner girls out there, but, just because you are a girl doesn’t mean we will take your car lightly; all is fair in the world of tuning. Being the typical guy I assumed that Aubre’s car would be relatively mild or overly done H.I.N. style, boy was I wrong.
