Wind chills made it difficult to shoot but the rain from yesterday and fast-moving cloudy skies provided a nice backdrop for a track that's typically just clear skies and dry yellow dirt. I'm all in for photo ops and it being my first Gridlife event, I'm excited to see their time-attack "TrackBattle Brackets" format. Its Superbowl Sunday and I expected low attendance but its a good turnout. A nice mix of talent of drivers, track/race cars and media. Met up with friends and new people; putting a name to a face, car, camera or a social media @account is always fun. The first half of the event ran like a typical track day, run groups out on track for HPDE and Qualifying. But for the other half, that's when everything gets turned up a few notches. Two cars are released onto an open track in a Tōuge style lead-follow battle. Green flag... gap 'em. Blue flag, switch positions. Green flag, close the gap and take the win at the checkered. Live commentary and post-race interviews over the PA loudspeakers, as well as the crowd cheering, heightened the excitement. This was a great experience, and I'm a fan of this time-attack format. I hope we get more of this here in the West Coast. But for now, check out these photos - Jeremy Adajar [/fusion_builder_column][/fusion_builder_row][/fusion_builder_container]
New Shirt, New Color, New year. That's right, after so many Black Shirts, a few Grey's and White's here and there, we officially launched a new color way with our recent collaboration. FCS Race is no stranger to the community. The racing world in general or in anything motorsports related, especially in Drag Racing. From full custom intercoolers, and fuel tank solutions, to newly discovered innovative products that not only help the Racers improve, but change the game for race cars and for the better. I've been grateful to know Jason Park for many years and his staple in the industry has definitely been a consistent one. Which is always working on the best possible solutions for racing down the 1320. But him, and his devoted crew have been helping many other cars and setups from with their state of the art shop. With that being said, we are honored to bring this dope Navy Blue Shirt showcasing the Infamous Ghost Rider on the Back of the shirt, (Art by Mert of EDC Graphics) with the FCS logo on the front upper left chest and the #valleyside -Rommel Estrada **Pre-Order Only from February 5-12 | Click here to Order!
Short and sweet, but good times nonetheless. We came and witness some early birds that have been lined up at the gate. The Car show was massive, and the amount of people attending was huge. But in true Motolyric Fashion we came back to the IFO Series for the Racing. The Drag Racing that is, since we only did 1 IFO event last year, we really missed out on a lot of racing. But 2019 shows some good dates for us to make it to more of them. It was good running into people we know, but always good seeing different cars and setups. Especially ones we haven't seen in awhile. Regardless we shot away and stayed for a bit. -Rommel Estrada #dragracingforever [/fusion_builder_column][/fusion_builder_row][/fusion_builder_container]
Another year or another SEMA for some. For me it was one out of 13 past SEMA’s, but since 2014. Lol. Either way, I had a great time and saw cars, parts, and builds that made me realize the direction of the Motorsports Industry is going well. […]
The Last Edition -Although not our last Vision, but this will be the Last Track Hookers Hoodie we do. This one is #5 of this awesome series we’ve been at for 5 years straight. Creating a Fresh Look and design under the “Track Hookers” name has always been what this was all about. But the pages must turn, and a new chapter begins within the Brand. This doesn’t mean the “Track Hookers” name will go away. We are changing within time as move forward with the brand, but while staying consistent with the delivery of our designs and merch. […]
Time Attack Is where it’s at -If you haven’t been or know much about Time Attack, I strongly encourage you to come through at a Global Time Attack event. Unlike other forms of racing, I still find Time Attack the closest thing to grassroots builds that were once in someone’s mind and then executed on a car to race. There is no one sided build here, or marquee, I mean you can sway that way like some. Lol. But if you like Honda’s or Chevys, LS swapped BMW’s and just much more, you’ll notice it all here. What I love most about this sport is the ingenuity of what goes on with the cars. Sure there is the common name branding and components you’ll find on most other race cars especially from other forms of Motorsports. […]
