Final Bout Gallery 2019.

416A2155.jpgFinal Bout has been hosting some of the top grassroots events in the nation for the past few years. It’s an incredible event that brings both drivers and spectators together from all across the country to the small town of Shawano Wisconsin for this event. The event is hosted at the well known USA International Raceway/usair. I’m lucky enough to call that track my home track, and seeing the track packed with some of the best drivers and builds in the country is quite the site to see. 416A8652416A7626416A6547416A5431416A3339One of the coolest parts of Final Bout is getting to see builds that you’ve only gotten to drool over pictures of out on the track in front of you shredding. There were drivers/teams from not only all across the country but even from other countries- Japan, Canada, California, New York and so on. RC9C1794416A5601A few drivers were even crazy enough to street drive their cars across the country for the event, like Dom who drove his gorgeous z32 all the way from California and Stewart who drove his S13 2200 miles from Canada. RC9C2227RC9C1441RC9C2742416A9082416A8068416A7152416A6572416A4234416A3564416A4199Style has always been very important in the midwest drift community, and the variety of stunning builds that were out on track at Final Bout certainly followed that suit.RC9C1619RC9C1088RC9C0863416A9193416A9111416A9033416A8678416A8657416A8459416A8042 The Sexy Knights, one of the og groups in the drifting community had 3 cars shipped over from japan to get to drive at the event. This was amazing for a lot of reasons, but getting to see our og’s driving on the doors of the true og’s of the sport sent chills down my spine.416A7955416A8279416A8490RC9C1647416A7626416A7568416A3349416A3532416A2759416A3078416A2085416A1753I’d like to extend an enormous thank you to every single person that had any part in making this event happen, they are the reason the drift culture has grown so big and continues to give us all inspiration for our own builds. Thank you to every driver who put on a show that we will all remember for a lifetime. And thank you to USair for hosting thousands of people at their track so that this event could happen!

Super D Cup – Midwest Trial 2018.

416A2657Super D is a new but very rapidly growing series that hosts grassroots competition events. They have hosted an event at Grange Motor Circuit and Meihan Sportsland this year and this past weekend they came out to host an event at my “local” track- USAIR (aka The Rollercoaster of Love) in Shawano Wisconsin. Its very cool to see so many drivers I usually see just driving for the fun of it face each other head to head in a tandem competition. Being on the grassroots level means you get to see everything from a stock engine BRZ to a 500hp tt G35 sedan lined up to compete. 416A2667416A2675416A2685A quick walk through the pits had me very excited for the track to go hot, the pits were stacked with so many proper cars.416A2846416A2969The layout selected for competition started with a long straight into turn 1 which allowed for plenty of huge entries all weekend long.416A3456416A4168416A4445416A4490416A4499There were multiple teams that traveled fairly far to attend- one of which was Top Garage and a few of their cars included a KA-T S15 and an LS R32. 416A4608Adam LZ made the trip out from Florida only to have his brand new turbo fail 3 laps in, but luckily he was able to rent a friends KA-T S13 out for the weekend.416A4642416A4939416A5159416A5244416A5343416A5605416A5918416A6238416A6317Its very obvious that the crowd that this event draws brings out their A-game when it comes to driving and style, which is always nice to see so much of at one event.416A6337416A6342416A6475416A6667416A6759416A6776416A6792As Saturday came to an end, it brought some fantastic lighting out and I was able to snap some rad shots as the sun went down.416A6829416A6940416A6957416A7080Just a couple rad rotary powered Mazda’s. 416A7113…annnnd an LS powered Mazda.416A7494416A7527416A7982416A9274Seeing how hard all the drivers were driving was a truly incredible experience, everyone gave it their all to put on a great show for the spectators and have a good time.416A9730416A9769416A9891416A9971At the end of the weekend, Adam LZ managed to get 1st place, and it was well deserved with his very consistent runs and aggressive driving. Super D did an incredible job bringing so many fantastic drivers together to partake in one of the best drift events stateside this year. I cant thank the hosts enough for making this happen, I cant wait for next year. To view the full album of my photos from this album click here.

Club FR Drift Day 71 @ USAIR

Club FR hosted Drift Day 71 at USAIR on 5/26-27/18, I was able to make it out for Sunday’s festivities and despite the mid 90 degree temps the event was a success as usual! I tried out some new things I learned and I was able to meet a lot of my improvement goals, still a lot to learn though. I hope you enjoy my coverage as much as I do! The full album from the event can be found here. If you would like to share any of the photos you can download them from the flickr mobile app or from a pc via the flickr website.
