Something we like to pride ourselves here at MaydayGarage is to bring our readers the best possible coverage of any event we attend. We’ve heard it from many of you that you guys truly love our coverage because not only are the pictures worth saving, but that we tend to bring a more human element to our photos, that is, we like to take photos of what’s actually going on at an event, not just the cars themselves. So my personal goal to you guys is to make this coverage of Wek’Fest’s first ever show here in Texas the best you’ll find on the internet, period. So let’s get going…
If you’ve been following MaydayGarage for a few years, then you know Mayday’s earliest beginnings started off as a caravan to Austin dubbed The Mayday Capital Run. It was originally conceived and planned by our very own JohnP as a way to build a small knit group of people that just want to cruise as a pack. The first few were so successful, we now have a following that travel with us every time we have one of these runs.
We just made it home from a wild night of partying after Wek’Fest was over in Ft. Worth and waking up at the buttcrack of dawn to do a shoot in downtown Ft. Worth. After grabbing one last bite at In-N-Out and stopping at Buc-ees, we’re back at our homes and sorting through our pictures. I alone narrowed down 300 photos of the 800 I shot from this past weekend, and that’s not including our other shooters. Trust me when I say we have all angles covered from this weekend, and we plan to be the authority on event coverage in Texas.
I just wanted to take a moment and thank all of the fans that came up to either me or the Mayday tent and gave us so many compliments on how you guys love what we do. When we hear these things, it makes us work harder to bring you the stuff we do.
With that being said, I’ll leave this photo of me sleeping next to Dennis’ NSX in our booth. I had dozed off while editing photos and making the last post from yesterday on the cold concrete floor, but I’m awake now, so stay tuned for our coverage of Wek’Fest, it’ll be worth it.
As I’m typing this while riding shotgun in Greg Lilly’s Matte Green STi, i’m having some difficulty holding on to my macbook and camera as Greg is literally blasting past our 30+ caravan of sweet and sick rides! I picked a few photos to share, and we’re a few hours out from our last stop at In-N-Out Burgers in Ft. Worth. Enjoy!
The Lonestar Run. Houston’s official roll out to Ft. Worth for WekFest.
The Lonestar Run is strictly for entertainment purposes only. It is not a race, therefore Mayday Garage is not responsible for any tickets, deaths, explosions or offensive material such as mooning that happen this run.
Now that being said, Meet-Up time is 9:00am at Greenspoint Mall in the main parking lot and roll-out will be 10:00 SHARP on Friday October 14th.
Some people are going to ask why we are leaving at 10AM on Friday and not 5-6pm and the answer is real simple, traffic. Having multiple cars in a “caravan” during rush hour sucks for everyone, therefore 10AM it is so we avoid the morning rush hour and afternoon rush hour traffic.
Secondly, some people will ask why we are leaving on Friday and not super hella early on Saturday morning. The answer is that we all love to party our asses off on Friday before the show, so, if you want to party with us, then roll out on Friday!
Now, on to the details.
