The stroked, poked, cammed, pushrod and just V8 gathered at the first V8 Builds event for some fun on the track, and to show a little of what they got in the paddock. Presented by Air Flow Research, the well known Head company had some interesting machinery on deck, while showcasing a few products and supporting the love of all things V8. While I heard about the event several weeks prior, I had other arrangements to attend and shoot another event. But the other guy in me wanted to see some torquey machines do some laps at one of my favorite tracks, Streets of Willow to be exact. […]

Max Capacity was more like it. First time I have ever seen Famoso Raceway that packed to the brim, and that’s me arriving early Sunday morning for what was a 3-4 day event. The ever-popular March Meet held at the famous Auto Club Famoso Raceway has been going down for almost 60 plus years. Don’t know the exact number, but from what I do know it was this event that put Bakersfield CA. on the Motorsports Map of the World. The history of this special event goes so far back that the stories of “Big Daddy” Don Garlits, John Force, Tony Pedregon and even NASCAR’s very own Kevin Harvick are truly part of what makes this event that great. I’ve been lucky enough to now be a visitor of such an event and more in the future. […]

  Professional Drifting just closed its season, and the cold temps are coming. With many track days coming to small numbers towards the winter, and the workshops are back storing machines of speed, it's obvious what we all wonder what the next BIG thing will be in 2013. This year came out in full force on all parts of the motorsports industry, from the Delta Wing to the Formula Drift Champ Daigo Saito, it was a great 2012. Honda a sleeping giant won in HPD form with their team Starworks Motorsports taking wins in Le Mans and Sebring, battling against Toyota and Nissan powered counterparts they are becoming a force to be reckon with. The Time Attack part of this has a new king and target, the NEMO Racing EVO broke the World Record with a 1:25.020 in Australia, bringing the competition more food to play at the table, and another challenge where machine and man become one to make a mark. From around the world Formula ONE is still running, the first ever 6 Champions in one season, with back to back intense action the Winner still cannot be sure. Hamilton is making changes after this year and will be jumping on board to Mercedes in 2013, Vettel last year's champ is making his way back to the top after hard races and determined thinking, it's a given his talent is merely great. While the return of Schumacher was long awaited it's another good-bye and possibly forever as he stated this will be his last seat time for the remaining races of 2012. Along with the many other racing forms, and thousands of developments going on through the year it's been a phenomenal 2012 to say the least, I wish I could mention everything I've [...]
