Man vs Wall: The Salt City Drift RMR Finale

by Michael Chandler

Last weekend was Rocky Mountain Raceway’s last Midnight Drags and the last Salt City Drift event at the facility.  Being that it was the last event at the venerable facility, everyone came out and tried their best to get as many runs and passes in as they could.  Many succeeded, but a few failed in that endeavor.  Let us talk about all of those people, and remember that there were no losers among those who came out!

After getting into the facility (which took forever because everyone who kept putting off driving at RMR realized that this was their last chance), we had the driver’s meeting.  Josh was not having any shit, and threatened to kick out anyone who held up the lines.  Why was he so adamant about not putting up with that kind of bullshit? Because there were more cars at this event than at any other SCD event!  KEEP IT MOVIN!!!

After the threats subsided, Dave grabbed the volunteers and gave them a briefing on what he was looking for.  Not sure who the hell that dancing guy is, but shoutout to you!.. You fuckin weirdo.  Also, shoutout to the guy who ran the start line for most of the night.  It’s a hard job, but he stepped up. 

He also had some moves!  LOOGIT THAT SEXY MOTHER FUCKER!!!!

And then we got to driving!  I managed to get a shot of Joshten’s no longer purple S14 before he blew his head gasket.  I didn’t shoot that many photos at night, mostly because I was shooting video!  It’ll be done eventually, and when that eventuality comes to pass you’ll be the fourth or fifth to know!

I an, intellectual/idiot, slept in my van.  My small van.  My small van that was full of stuff.  It wasn’t ideal, but it wasn’t as bad as you’d think.  Morning came, and I was greeted with bacon and smiles from Josh Willette.  It was very welcomed.

Some of us went a different route…

Don’t worry, his sexy ass recovered.

Eventually everyone woke up/showed up, and a brief driver’s meeting was held.  And then we got to driving.

And there was much rejoicing.

Then the dude with the S13 Silvia (right hand drive and everything) ate the wall, and wound up on the news.  Then I went home, because I had other things to get done.  It was a fitting farewell.  Most everyone had a good time, and nothing burned to the ground.  RMR will be missed, but never forgotten.  

And now a big ass gallery!

And So It Began: Salt City Drift

by Michael Chandler

SCDround1RMRCAM-29

It’s that glorious time of the year: the time where people are scrambling for cheap tires, random KA parts, and whatever else they need to get their buckets out for some legal drifting!  Yes, the Salt City Drift season is on!  And the first event, despite being kinda chilly and rather breezy, was pretty cool.  Let’s discuss why it was cool, and why you should’ve made it out to RMR.

SCDround1RMRCAM-25SCDround1RMRCAM-78

SCDround1RMRCAM-21

First, you got to see some stuff out ripping.  Live, and in person.  Stuff like Scott’s twin turbo, LS powered S13, David’s E36, and Josh’s LS E46.  Scott and David ended their days with issues, but Josh kept smoking the place out.

SCDround1RMRCAM-58

HUGS!

SCDround1RMRCAM-67

Sweet souvenirs for some lucky fans/media people.

You could’ve seen friend of the program, partner in Vxii Lifestyle, driving coach, and racing driver James Burke try his hand at drifting!

Unsurprisingly, he’s not half bad at it.  And that’s just some of what you missed!  Check out the gallery to see the rest of the stuff you missed.

SCD Round Whatever at UMC

by Michael Chandler

Drifting is over!  At least in an organized sense.  Yes, the last event was that UMC event.  And despite me doing my regular media duties, and driving in one of the NASA Utah HPDE, I got some decent shots of the drifting.  From the sweet tandems, as seen above, to…

The ridiculousness that was The Bluegrass Express: Jordan’s open diff G35 sedan, that he took out with three passengers in it.  

There was inter-species communication!

… and spoopy things.

Scott has groupies.  He’s lying if he says any different.  JUST LOOGIT EM!

Good boys were everywhere!

GOOD BOY!!  Now here’s the gallery.  Want to buy a print, and help me to get out to events?  Well hit this link, and chip in!

Salt City Drift Round 4

by Michael Chandler

Words and photos by Joey Harrington, Video by Gavin Pouquette

Round 4 of the Salt City Drift season went off without a hitch.  No rain, nobody destroyed their car and caused the whole event to come to a grinding halt, and there was even a decent crowd because someone blew up on the drag strip and everyone migrated over to see Scott Bradshaw, Stu Smedley, Brandon Wicknick, Derrick Lopez, Nick Nengas, and either Enoch Campbell or Bobby Powell (they were sharing Enoch’s G35) rip the course.  In addition to the usual photos, there’s a sweet video!

Sweet, huh?  And here are the photos.  Remember: you can share the photos all you want, just remember to tag us, mention us, or link back to us.  And don’t crop out the watermark!
