see this hot hot hot action at our recent photoshoot where cops went EXTREMLY wild……. or were just rather large assholes. night started off with some candle light dinner amongst 4 buddies and one girlfriend, you know the regular everyday garden variety shit. except said girlfriend happens to be a photographer, and happens to have a camera, and omg actually wants to take pictures!!!!! if this situation ever happens to you please do not go to creve coure and please dont use their parking structures. they will swarm in like killer bees and ruin your fun parade. we were swarmed by 4 cop cars that were moving at an alarming rate of speed. once they found out that nothing was going on, they interrogated us, then analy probed us. news at 11.

oh p.s.

finally, i know, some shots from the big event out at gateway last weekend. about half of them were shot by asuka, the other half by myself.

as you may know, gateway is pretty terrible for spectating unless you run out to the middle of the track. well i didn’t bother to get a media vest, so all my shots are from behind the fence, boooo.

kinda weird, i was putting smoke down with the miata?

our very own mike was killing it both days, and ended up getting 4th place! wow! we were going nuts cheering him on!

this is rob of team hot tub party in his chaser.

tony, another hot tub party dude.

here’s conrad, the newest addition to control freaks, in his s13.5 hatch, sexyyyyyy.

here’s dustin, aka “krazi” from kansas city. this dude kills it way too hard for stock suspension!

here’s charlie, one of st. louis’s regular drift guys.

this is matt, one of st. louis’s ginger drifters, rockin’ the RB25 Z32, drooool..

that’s it for solo shots. sorry to anybody i wasn’t able to snap a picture of. now on to the competition!

here’s nackers in the stock(ish?) 350z running against mike pollard of TMF Opposition
mike ended up moving on.

juan marquez of CM Werks, pictured here, and simba from grip gambler ended up running 3 times!

they weren’t running close at all for some reason.

here’s our mike running against tyler from texas.

mike did absurdly well for his first try at tandem, ever, and ended up moving on to the semi-finals as tyler had engine problems in their last run.

brian peter, a club fr regular, went up against st. louis’s chuck from adrenaline motorsports.

chuck did his best in the wet conditions.

but brian moved on into the semi-finals.

now, the semi-finals! mike and… mike.. had to run twice to determine the winner.

our mike incidentally threw off pollard with a really early e-brake entry, and managed to pull away.
just as it seemed mike was going to win against a serious competitor, he spun at the last stretch of their final run. everybody was crushed, but we can’t complain, as mike had an absolutely amazing performance for his first tandem competition.

now juan marquez faced off against brian peter.
brian moved onto the finals.

and then the camera died.. really! not to worry, more footage from our boy rhino coming up soon..
