NST Is Headed To Orlando For XDC Round 3

Those of you who keep up with the NST drift team know that round two of the 2011 XDC, April 23 Phoenix AZ, was a disaster for team NST.  Will Parsons and Joshua Steele both suffered blown engines and Chelsea DeNofa had to qualify and compete in a borrowed car.
A couple weeks have flown by very quickly and round 3 is just around the corner.  Chelsea’s M3 is ready for competition this weekend, Joshua will be driving his 350Z, and Will has been very busy at getting his AE86 ready for battle.
In an effort to bring our friends and fans closer to all the action this year, we have recently teamed up with Cody Slack of APEX US Blog.  The main focus of this partnership will manifest in the next few weeks as the new documentary series, “Life NonStop.”  Visit the following links for a sneak peak of what is to come…
Stay tuned for updates from Florida throughout the weekend!

NST AE86 (8-6) Weekend Recap; Part One.

Jonas Velasco's NST AE86 Under The Texas Sun

Three cities, three days, and 500 miles on the road … we took to the southeast Texas triangle; Houston, San Antonio, Austin.  Arguably the largest 8-6 celebration in the USA this year gathered AE86 (and other Toyota) owners willing to put in more than ten hours on the road to experience a multi-city road trip, car show, drift demo, and a weekend stay on the famous River Walk in San Antonio, Texas.

Enjoy the teaser pics here and stay tuned for a full recap coming soon!

From right to left... AE86, S13, Chaser.

Ready to roll!

Grand Sport Speedway March 28 Drift Event, Photos

Chelsea DeNofa getting close!

Another local drift event has come and gone… another batch of tires have been smoked, barrels of gas and Red Bull are empty.  And yet, if you were to call any of us to go out there again tomorrow the answer would be the same… “I’ll meet you there in the morning!”

I hardly ever take my own camera out to local events these days.  The local coverage from sources such as Mayday Garage, Andrew Castaneda, and other talented photographers means that the drivers and event staff can have one less thing to worry about.  A blast from the past, Alex of DailyDrifter fame was even on hand, taking pics this time around!  These guys take awesome pics and we try to make sure other things run smoothly.

End rant, enter pics…
