just love how fast they go, and then transition into the smaller tighter more technical area. why don’t we have an actual nice road course in stl, oh that’s right because gateway is retarded

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.

in closing it was a rather good event. it was ran really smoothly for it being a first event. then turnout was somewhat low, but that just ment more practice for the drivers there. good times!!

seeing that excellent video by mr. will roegge got me thinking i should post up what dmggmasd was to me, and to share it with those that will understand. to those that dont and just hate, youll never get it anyway.

this was an event for the people, by the people. fuck your money, your ego, your gossip and the endless bickering and mindless chatter. this was about getting back to what truly means anything. this was about friends, family, and the passion that draws you all together. this was a group finally spitting in the face of the corporate sponsors and the ever raising expectations, and just getting back to the fun of hanging out with your closest friends and acting like the idiots we all truly are. drift mechaniks gossip girl marathon and some drifting wasnt for everyone. its wasnt a cry for attention. it was a bold statement. it was drifting at its purest. i present to you dmggmasd, and the media coverage that went with it.

the first 3 shots of this are from brady stribling (sexiest photographer ever probably) and you can catch the rest of the brady striblings’ gallery here
, the rest of the shots are by andy sapp including the centerfold story he did for s3 magaizine.

and this is the place to catch the rest of the madness
