Like the song by Rancid goes, “I’m back, I’m back, I’m back where I belong. I’ve been gone way too long and I’m back where I belong.” Continue reading
It seems like every year Gridlife gets bigger and bigger. Last year it seemed like it was at maximum capacity, but somehow the Gridlife crew managed to top it. I overheard some conversations that Gingerman Raceway was actually completely full.
I haven’t been too active on here of recent, but I will have some stories coming soon. But in the meantime, here are some scenes from this year’s Woodward Dream Cruise. One million people and around 40,000 cars; its nothing but a big party surrounding a massive traffic jam.
Goodwood. It’s one of those places that evokes dreams of race cars and exotics racing up a hill, or people dressed in period clothing watching some of the best historic racing anywhere in the world. Continue reading
It’s mid to late December 2016 and I’m plotting and scheming what cool things I could do in 2017. There’s one big motorsport I still hadn’t seen and I desperately wanted to cross it off the list. WRC. Continue reading
2017 was a radically different year for me, if the past decade had been any indication of what I’d be doing. FD Irwindale in 2016 was my 50th round in ten seasons so I decided to take a break. I also ran out of clients, so that made it an easy decision. I also wrote a book that fall, thought I hadn’t meant to. After road tripping around the western US in the summer of 2016, I sat down to write a Life Blasters article and it ended up being 265 pages long. It’s available on Amazon and Barnes & Noble if you’re interested. I’d also gotten back into music in 2016, and I had plans to release an album in 2017. The last significant change of 2016 was selling out of my vinyl graphics business. With music to be made and no vinyl equipment taking up space in my garage, the stage was set.
Final Bout is no doubt one of the best grassroots drift events in the Unites States, maybe even the world. The style, the camaraderie and the fact that people from all over North America hauled their cars to a small town in Wisconsin for drifting. But sadly, all good things must come to an end.

After attending the Goodwood Festival of Speed last year, my dad and I were determined to visit the Goodwood Revival. Little did we know, just one year after the Festival we’d be back in Chichester. We arrived in England on Friday and headed to the track. So just armed with one camera my 70-200mm lens, I set out to do a quick scan of the parking lot. Continue reading
2017 started off pretty slow, but the Midwest Drift Union started what turned out to be a pretty crazy couple months. A couple days after MDU, I found myself back in Ohio for one of my favorite races, the Eldora Dirt Derby. Continue reading
As with any day or event, I usually try to start with a car show. With the car scene in Michigan always changing, you never know what might show up. Continue reading
What happens when you mix race cars, drift cars, music and a few thousand people? Simple, Gridlife. Continue reading
Last April I wrote a story about spring finally hitting here in Michigan. I started off at Ann Arbor Cars and Coffee and ended up heading to Parking at Pasteiner’s. Now it’s May of 2017 and here I am again, doing a story on the same two places celebrating the return of spring. Continue reading
It was about that time of year again where I found myself wondering through the city making way towards the Javits Center looking for cars. Not that that ever stops me from finding bikes on the way.
If you ever find yourself in or around Naples, Florida, do yourself a favor and plan a trip to the Revs Institute.
I’ll just say it now, this is an incredibly wordy, history filled look through the collection. If you want to read more on their collection and see the other cars, check out their website here: Revs Institute. Continue reading
For the first time in years, my year did not start off with either the North American International Auto Show or Sno*Drift. I decided to skip both because neither one really piqued my interest, so that left the door open for a whole new way to start the year. Continue reading
I’ll admit it, I have a problem. I love cars, I love seeing them race, I love taking photos of them, and I love owning them. Which leads me to the old Datsun on the right. Continue reading
Acura NSX – North American International Auto Show, Detroit, Michigan. Continue reading
