Event: VTEC Club Season 2 Round 3 – ACS

A week or two ago, my friend Jay and I had been playing with the idea of attending the event at Auto Club Speedway, but my tentative schedule had me slated to be out of town that weekend.  I knew there was a VTEC Club event being held on the same day, and was a little disappointed as my work schedule has been keeping me from most of the second season. Well, as luck would have it, my schedule opened up and a day or two before the event I messaged Duane to see if there were any openings.  Upon hearing the news, Jay was on board to drive as well, so early Saturday morning we left the shop bound for Fontana.

Encounter: Pair of Kings- Tony and Damon’s 240’s

It’s always memorable to meet new people (most of the time anyway), especially if you’re a fan of their work or if you share the same interests.  It’s even more memorable, however, if there is something attached to that meeting that makes it stand out among the many other encounters we experience.  In this case, in my meeting of Damon and Tony, that memorable event came in the form of a Shawano, Wisconsin Sheriff.

Close-Up: A Labor Of Love – Kou Lor’s RE Amemiya FC3S

When I had first decided that I would be attending Final Bout, to be honest, it wasn’t the event that I was actually looking forward to; it was seeing this particular car.  Don’t get me wrong, I was excited for the event, but getting to see in person, and more so getting to meet the builder, of what I perceive to be the most well executed FC in the country would become the highlight of my trip.

Event: Final Bout 2 – The Spirit of Drift V.2

When I left off the first post, I had just got done making my rounds in the pit, getting acquainted with a few people, and generally just getting a lay of the land.  It was my first time at US Air and really wasn’t familiar with any of the track layout.  After Mico introduced me to Nick from Touge Factory, I was able to get a media pass and head out to the infield to start getting some shots of the open practice session that was going on.

Event: Final Bout 2 – The Spirit of Drift V.1

Being on an airplane nearly every week for the last year has somewhat numbed me to the miracle of flight.  Commercial airlines have figuratively made the world a much smaller, and more obtainable place.  The opportunity of creating new relationships and  experiences are increased exponentially because of our ability to understand flight.  As I travel for work quite frequently, I often have to step back and view the act existentially as to remind myself of what I’ve been able to accomplish with the help of those winged metal tubes.  Arriving home Thursday after a 4 day stint in Tucson, Arizona, I had one day to catch up on work, and gather my camera gear, as I had made the decision to make my way Northeast on Friday night.
