Legendary in it’s own right, nothing is as exciting for me to start the racing season with some good ol Drag Racing. The import kind of Import Face-Off, that has been bringing back the Import Drag Racing a place to race, and a spot in the Motorsports World. Sure it’s not as big as the Imports vs. Domestics at the end of year or March Meet that falls after, but Cliff of IFO and the partners like Mike from the Foat, and Nick of Ososik have been making IFO a legendary series for some time now. With over 40 plus events a year around the USA, they have been giving racers a place to go down the quarter mile for the past 16 years and have succeeded as now the #1 Import Drag Racing Series in the US!  […]

Before 2017 started, we decided to really focus on promoting and working with past event holders that have helped us along the way. For the past 4 years we’ve been actively posting our photos from Import Face-Off exclusively on thefoat.com which not only showcases Motolyric’s photos, but many other photographers and media around the World. If you are into Import Drag Racing, but find interests in other types of racing, check out thefoat.com for all types of content. But even better, let’s say you are interested in putting an event together for your meet, or a race at a track. How do you reach an audience? How do sell tickets? […]

Nitro makes me cry…

Well, it surely does if your not use to it. March Meet 2016 was whole other story. The Nitro, the hot-rods, the people, and the rain. Yup, it rained, just a little enough for some to question their track quest that weekend. Thanks to Mike from thefoat.com and M&H Tires for another opportunity experiencing one of my favorite events of the year. This one did not disappoint. […]

Maxed Out – March Meet 2015

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. […]

As most of the So-Cal or should I say West Coast Import Drag Racers are doing right now, is getting ready and prepped for one of the Biggest Races of 2015. Bakersfield’s open countryside has a special Drag Strip known as Auto Club Famoso Raceway. Here many have sped down the 1320 feet and more for what some may call the best track in So-Cal. […]
