couldn’t quite get around to posting this on time, but i’d figure i’d post up what i’m thankful for this year.

this picture pretty much sums it up. i’m thankful for friends, being lucky enough to do something i love, my car not giving up on me, and hell, sometimes friends even take pictures of me. this picture couldn’t happen without any of that stuff.

i hope i can keep doing this stuff for many years to come. thanks to panda for the pic!!

alok paleri of lokky designs posted this up on driftmechaniks the other day, and i thought it was a pretty rad video.

two dudes, driving their drift cars 1000km~ to an event, killing tires, and driving back home. sounds familiar!

bRad is a cool dude from jersey who a few of us got to hang out with this weekend in nashville at the dmggm2 event. he’s trying to get to irwindale this year, but needs some help. help out an up-and-coming driver in need, and send bRad to the pro am nationals!

For all you guys that know me and some who dont Ive been invited to the pro am nationals in Irwindale Ca for Formula D. This has been a last minute thing at the moment all I have going for me is Nexen Tires backing me with rubber. At this point I’m taking anything donations would be amazing I roughly need 1700 bucks in gas so theoretically if I can get 400 people to donate 5 bucks I’m set. Its a long shot but who knows, anyone who donates will be entitled to getting their name put on my car if they desire. Thanks in advance guys!

driftstl “cold as balls” video by mvpdrift by kOOpA

a local dude, mvpdrift on driftstl made this video of the event this past sunday. the event didn’t really have a name, as it was pretty much a spur of the moment thing put on by gateway international raceway. but apparently people were crying about it being cold, so we’re just calling it “cold as balls”, how cute.

not crazy on the music, but the shots are great, pretty much captures the feeling of the event. i’m sure we’ll see mvpdrift progress more in his videos next season, i look forward to it!

hahaha, we had an event at gateway sunday after halloween. this is conrad about to take a run out in dan’s car, so we were putting as much pressure on him as possible XD

don’t wreck! but if you do, there’s an ambulance that’ll take you to the hospital! watch out for the k rails!

more pics from that event as soon as i get done picking some out. rhino took something like 2400 pictures x_x he took this one as well. check out his site here, unless you support terrorism or something..

we went to hit some of our favorite roads this halloween. no drifting, just calm cruising, cool champaign, and warm hearts.

anyway, onto the pics. we took a spot off the side of the road, and sara, jarrod’s girlfriend, got to work on the picture takin!
