Check out the video and make sure you watch it in HD as his crew did an awesome job putting it together. You almost feel as if you are in the car with him riding shot gun!

Quick Snap: Lone Star Drift in Houston Texas

lone star drift in Houston Texas

Had a chance to stop by Lone Star Drift this past Sunday in in Houston. I only had about an hour to catch some of the action before I had to head back to Dallas but was able to snap a few practice runs. A decent crowd showed up despite the rain early in the AM and it’s always nice to see people having fun in drifting! I don’t have much of a write up for you but hope you can enjoy the photos. A big thank you to Aaron of Fabricated Motorsports for the media pass; will definitely check out the Mineral Wells event later this month. Also would like to shout out Art, who I ran into at the event as he was rockin one of the WMD “We Are The Media” shirts! Good to meet WMD friends. More photos after the break. – Alex
