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.
For the fourth year in a row I made my way to Michigan’s Keeweenaw Peninsula for the final round of the Rally America National Championship. It is one of my favorite rallies and like most years the fall colors and the action didn’t disappoint.
Gridlife. I’m not really sure how to sum it all up. Drifting, time attack, high performance driving education, concerts, car show, camping and partying. I guess that’s it in a nutshell.
Last year I was invited to an open house at RM Motorsports in Wixom, Michigan. Before that day, I only knew vaguely of RM and what they did, but I wasn’t ready for the shock I got when I entered their showroom. A couple weeks ago I got a message on Facebook from someone who […]
Living in Michigan is a double-edged sword, anywhere in the all four seasons is really, but Michigan seems to be slightly different. As I always say, we’re the home of the Motor City, we basically have fuel in our veins. But when November or December rolls around we loose the ability to enjoy our passion. […]
The final round of the 2015 Rally America National Championship; The Lake Superior Performance Rally. Brought with it crisp fall temperatures and wonderful colors. For the second year in a row I made the trip to cover the event, It rained and even snowed for most of the ride up. I was hoping it wouldn’t […]
I live about half an hour away from Ann Arbor, Michigan. Ann Arbor is an interesting city with the University of Michigan right in the center. It’s a high-tech city that is filled with businesses and shops that cater to the high-tech community and university students. Its also home to a few well known car […]
There are 52 weekends in 2015 and about half of those are good enough for racing here in Michigan. Of course there are going to be multiple events on several of those weekends, and for the second year in a row I’ve been torn between two big events.
Sno Drift, an event I look forward to every year, traveling up north to stand in the middle of the forest to watch a bunch of cars race by every minute or so. But this year was different. Very different. I’m sure some people have seen articles about the event talking about the possible downfall […]
2014 actually felt like a “Fresh Start” for me. I had just moved back to New York a month before the new year and the first week of 2014 started with a train ride to the city to buy my new 7D. It feels pretty good to kick my “Best of 2014” with a photo […]
Another year of Life Blasting is over and what a trip it has been. From rally, to NASCAR, to drifting and sports cars. Unfortunately I couldn’t travel too far this year, but luckily the amount of events around the Ohio, Michigan and Wisconsin area are some of the best in the country. For almost my […]
A few weeks ago a friend of mine sent me a text asking if I was busy on December 6th. I opened the attachment and saw it was for RM Motorsports, local company that specializes in restoring historic race cars.
Known as the “oldest, meanest and toughest rally on the circuit,” the Lake Superior Performance Rally storms into Houghton, Michigan for the 8th and final round of the 2014 Rally America championship, marking the 20th anniversary of this event in the process.
There’s a lot of car shows and races around the world. Many of them are attended by hundreds of thousands of people, but there’s only one Woodward Dream Cruise.
The Detroit River is home to a lot of things: cars, weapons, evidence and probably people. But in between Canada and Detroit is a little island called Belle Isle. Since the late 1800s, Belle Isle has been a park with casinos, aquariums, and a few boat clubs. The past several years it’s been a dangerous […]
I’m sure you’re thinking, why am I looking at some broken race cars? And, why is gingivitis spelled wrong?
2014 marks the beginning of another season of the Rally America Championship. Held in northern Michigan during the last weekend of January, the date ensures the roads will have a nice covering of snow to always mix things up. The big news going into this year’s SnoDrift Rally was the return of Travis Pastrana and […]
