Another lovely Saturday at Miller Motorsports Park, filled with tire smoke from tormented tires.

I was only there up til the lunch break, but fun was had none the less.  Michael Niermeyer, Mike Fulkerson, and Brandon were giving ride alongs for $20 a pop.  I got a ride with Niermeyer in his 302 powered S13, but you could have gone with Mike in an S13 coupe or Brandon in the Formula D car.  Not a bad choice in the bunch.

Jordan got his SC400 powered S13 going and brought it out for a ride along!

And it ran lovely right up until it didn’t.  Here’s to hoping he comes back with it this season, with or without the V8.

Aside from Jordan breaking down, and someone blowing the top of his radiator off, it was a good day.  The next iDrift is May 25.  Show up!  It’s a fun time, and what else are you going to do Memorial Day weekend?

The D Spare guys threw a demo at Rocky Mountain Raceway.  They even convinced Tanner “The Snowman” Baer to come out from Elko and join in.  We’re going to skip the unloading and pretty sunset photos and get straight to business.

Tanner competes in Vegas Pro/Am in this little Miata.  He was doing a decent job right up until…

The motor let go.  Gotta pay to play.

After a soul crushingly long delay to clean up, the Utah guys got back to business.

Little known fact: Mikey is afraid of walls.

Brandon appears ready to storm Atlanta in his sparkly purple S13.

As always, there are more in a big ol’ Facebook album.  Formula D at Road Atlanta is May 10 & 11, so either get there and watch Brandon in person or hop on the stream and see how he does.
