Sorry about the past two days, been a bit hectic working on cars and getting some things done. Between cutting springs on ’81 Cressidas, doing clutches on S13’s, and trying to get my own car back on the road, haven’t been on here much. Which can explain the drop in VIEWS! Anyways, this is Ken Gushi at last year’s Formula D at Evergreen Speedway. Not a local driver, but a badass photo from our home town track!

Updates

Posted in News on 01/20/2009 by Ian

Didn’t have much to post tonight, its hard to get interesting things since drifting isn’t happen for a few more months. I’m trying to find good things everyday, but its not always that easy. I know that once Golden Gardens rolls around (more on that later) and when the season picks up I’ll have more than enough content for you people to lick up.

Regardless, get the word out, tell your friends. We’re trying to get this shit to blow up!

I would’ve posted sooner, but I was having trouble picking the perfect photo for today, but I think I got a good one. As you can see, that is the popular yellow-SR20-powered AE86 of Trent Stromkins. Trent runs the Cell Block D events up in B.C. and is one of the nicest guys on the track.

Off Season Fun

With the drift season over until Spring, you’ve got to get that pent up energy out. The guys over at RightWheelDrive.com have weekly meets that have grown to be pretty popular. Starting around 7:30pm, people show up to Dave’s Burgers in Lynwood, Washington to shoot the shit and get some cheap, amazing grub. After a while, everybody gets bored and hits up Traxx Indoor Racing in Mukilteo for some drift karting. Not a bad way to spend $22 if I do say so myself.

When: Every Wednesday, 7:30pm

Dave’s Burgers:
19509 44TH Ave W
Lynnwood, WA 98036-5619
Phone: (425) 672-1470

Traxx Indoor Racing
4329 Chennault Beach Road
Mukilteo, WA 98275
425-493-TRAX or 425-493-8729

Anyways, this is an invite for everybody to come hang out, and have some fun before the drift season starts back up again. If you have any questions, e-mail me.

Sunday Morning Breakfast

So, this is an older video from last year, but I couldn’t help but post it. I was present for the first Breakfast Club, but the second installment is just as good. Yet another great flick from Running Projects.

Nothing really to say about this one, other than its taken by Tyler Coray, and in all honesty, my immediate reaction is “Oooh, sparkly”.

Fail/New Track!

Posted in News on 01/18/2009 by Ian

Well, the photo shoot didn’t end up going down tonight due to some schedules not matching up, a bit disappointed, but what can you do. I’m hoping we can get the photo shoot rescheduled and show you guys some superb cars from the Northwest!

I thought I’d take some time out and show you guys a video of the new track in Oregon, Oregon Raceway Park. It looks like an extremely fun track, and we’re hoping that drifting hits that track in the near future. It looks really fast, which can only mean some gangster shit will be going down.

Here is an overhead photo of the track:

And here is some in car footage, nothing better than a brand new track:
