Best of Campbell 2015

December 1st, 2014 I had moved back to New York, shot a few events and bought myself a new camera.  But 2015 is when I became an official Life Blaster and things really started getting interesting. It was snowing in NY that March so my first event for the year I escaped the cold and went […]

Looking Back

Once upon a Time, there was the Year 2014. When a new Year starts, you don’t know what will happen to you, or what it’ll bring to you. In my case the year ended not quite nicely. But I moved on. I remembered to myself: “Stop saying I wish, I would – Do it. Do what ever […]

International Motorcycle Show

On December 13th I found my way to the Jacob Javits Convention Center in NYC.  This place has been one of the single biggest and sought-after locations for conventions, trade shows, and events since 1986.  Popular events like the International Auto Show and Comic Con are held here every year.

The Race of Gentlemen

We’re finally approaching the winter season and that usually means less car events.  Luckily for me one day fellow Blaster Eric Delaney messaged me about this east coast event called “The Race of Gentlemen”, a.k.a. T.R.O.G, in Wildwood, NJ.  Without hesitation I found the event website, watched a short video on the event and once […]

SCCA Rally Sprint at Team O’Neil Rally School

Back in September I found myself on the road again.  This time I was headed up to New Hampshire, specifically to Team O’Neil Rally School for the SCCA’s 2nd Rally Sprint.  About 6, almost 7 hours and the final stop?  A parking lot in Littleton, NH where early tech was supposed to take place, the night […]

Historic Festival 33 at Lime Rock

After my two week adventure to Texas, for Formula Drift with Bohan, I had another event lined up that I’ve been waiting to get to.  Just a few hours northwest in Connecticut during the first weekend of September is when you’ll find Lime Rock Park flooded with historic cars as old as 1920, running up […]

One More Time at FD Texas

That’s me in NYC on August 17th at about midnight, if I remember correctly.  What am I doing here at this time?  The answer is simple.  I have a West Coast friend who has an obsession with hitting all 50 states, needs to shoot Formula Drift in Texas, but has a few states to hit […]

Bohan’s Epic Journey

PROLOGUE When I was in second grade, my classmates and I “wrote” books about ourselves. I use the term loosely because really we just filled out forms for each page. One of my pages was, “I want to go to Asia  because I have never been there  .” That way of thinking is at the […]

American Rallycross

There’s nothing like having many photographers and race car drivers as friends.  One day I get a message from follow photographer Ian Pouliot, of Nemesis Photography, asking “Hey!  You want to shoot American Rallycross on July 1st?”  As it turns out, Gary De Masi, usually spotted running his Ford Ranger rally truck, was working with […]

East Coast Bash

Back in 2013 fellow Blaster Eric and I made a last minute snap decision and drove from Michigan to Jersey overnight to make East Coast Bash the following morning.  Now I’m back in NY, an official Blaster and back to ECB in just a couple hours.  Now before we get to the opposite side of […]

The Sandblast Rally

It’s March 4th, a beautiful 70-degree Thursday out in good ol’ Cheraw, South Carolina, where rally competitors are coming in from all over the country for the Sandblast Rally, held by NASA Rally Sport. As for me, this is the day I decided to leave Long Island, NY, during a snow storm, to make the […]

Chasing the Sun across Long Island

My name is Matt Campbell and I’m a Long Islander. Whether I like it or not, I was born and raised here and have lived here for almost 30 years. Originally when I was planning on writing about Long Island I had some “touristy” places picked out to travel to. The more I thought about […]

Lost in New York

Every year when I’m in the Northeast for FD Jersey, I make it a point to spend some time in New York, and I always try to do something different. I stayed with GuestBlaster Matt Campbell out of Long Island, and he dropped me off at the LIRR station one morning on his way to […]

The Mt. Washington Hillclimb

What do you do when you live on Long Island in New York and there’s really no good racing? You drive for hours to get off the island and then you pick a direction.  This time around, it was Mt. Washington Auto Road for the “Climb to the Clouds” uphill race!  Let’s start by heading […]

FD Montréal

It’s always exciting to shoot at a new track, and double exciting when the new track is in a different country. Triple exciting when you get to go there with friends from far-off places. Marcel was in North America for Pikes Peak and decided to stay for FD as well, so after a drive through the […]

FD Jersey: The Plot Thickens

FD Jersey never disappoints. Despite Wall not being a particularly pretty track, it produces some of the most amazing drift battles anywhere in the world. The steep, dangerous bank, the quick transition sections, and the long flat turns provide ample opportunity for wall rides, tight tandems, and disastrous mistakes.
